Upon entering the boss area, the Kongs must transform themselves into Squawks in order to make King Zing appear and start the battle. Since you can only defeat this boss while controlling Squawks, this Animal Buddy's hard-to-handle controls can easily make this boss that much more difficult to defeat, so patience is recommended. Coconuts must be shot at King Zing's stinger in order to inflict damage. Like Queen B., after a certain amount of damage, King Zing will enter a temporary rage/invincibility mode as indicated by his entire body turning red, and shoot multiple spikes from his spine at you. A Krem Coin is rewarded once you manage to defeat him.

In this remake for the Game Boy Advance, King Zing's "rage" mode is replaced with a transformation into a regular-sized Zinger with multiples of other Zinger's circling around him, making it increasingly hard to land an actual hit without sustaining damage yourself. To overcome this, every outside Zinger must be killed by the provided amount of barrels and then you must proceed to inflict four straight hits on King Zing in order to ensure defeat.
