Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, often shortened to Donkey Kong Country 3, is the third installment of the Donkey Kong Country series. It was originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1996. Like its two prequels, the game was developed by Rareware and published by Nintendo.

The game stars Dixie Kong and her toddler cousin Kiddy Kong, who search for Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong after they went missing on their fishing trip. Meanwhile, the Kremling Krew returns under the leadership of a mysterious cyborg, KAOS, later revealed to be an invention of Baron K. Roolenstein, the mad scientist alias of K. Rool.

Unlike the previous installment, which featured a pirate high-seas adventure theme, this game has more of a mix between a mechanical theme and a generic theme similar to the first game, but unlike Donkey Kong Country's tropical scenery, the game features locations similar to northern Europe and similar climates. The game events take place at the Northern Kremisphere.

In 2005, a remake of the game was released for the Game Boy Advance in 2005 with new features, most notably a new world, Pacifica, and an entirely different soundtrack composed by David Wise.
