Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! (JP) (also called Donkey Kong Country 3, DKC3, or Super Donkey Kong 3 in Japan) is a video game that was released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1996, soon after the launch of the Nintendo 64. It is the third game in the Donkey Kong Country series and the third and final game in the original Donkey Kong Country trilogy, overall. Rather than starring Donkey Kong or even Diddy Kong, the protagonists are Dixie Kong and her cousin Kiddy Kong. Their main objective is to save Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong from the robot antagonist KAOS, who happens to be the Kremling Crew's new leader.
This game was remade on the Game Boy Advance in November/December 2005, adding six new stages and a new soundtrack. It was eventually released on the Wii's Virtual Console in its original form in 2007/2008. Unlike the previous games, Donkey Kong Country 3 was not released on the Wii's Virtual Console in South Korea. On November 25, 2012, for reasons unknown, Donkey Kong Country 3 and both its predecessors were delisted from the Wii's Virtual Console, but on October 30, 2014, the games were relisted only in Europe and Australia. Around the same time, the games were released on the Wii U's Virtual Console in Europe and Australia, in Japan on November 26, 2014, and in the United States and Canada on February 26, 2015. For handhelds, Donkey Kong Country 3 was ported exclusively over to the New Nintendo 3DS's Virtual Console in May/June 2016. It was made available on Super Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online for the Nintendo Switch on December 18, 2020.

- Link is mentioned by Bazaar when you ask him about the castle but then tell him you are saving (bear coins) for Swanky's. He says, "Are you sure? Some cheeky lad called Link was in just last week and he asked about the castle too. He didn't have enough coins, but he seemed such a nice fellow that I agreed to accept 500 rupees instead. After that he left... muttering about my shells being the wrong shape or something. Oh well!"
- The reference to the seashells may be referring to the seashells in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
- The game also has an official soundtrack.
- The game was featured on the cover of Nintendo Power V90.
