Upon reaching the Boss of the Kids Room (Funky Snaky), wait for the level to begin. Once the boss appears and the spotlight comes shines on it, press Left, Right+B+C simultaneously and then Right+B+C simultaneously in very quick succession on Controller 2. If you were successful in entering the code, then you are now able to control the boss.


The controls for the Boss are as follows:

  • D-pad Left or Right to make the boss move left and right.
  • D-Pad Up OR Down to make the move boss closer to or farther away from the camera.
  • Z and C to make the boss move up and down.
  • A, B, Y, L and R to have the boss make noises.
  • X to make the room light turn on and off.
  • Start will cancel user control, and make the regular boss fight start again.

  • This code is a little awkward to get right at first, so don't worry if you don't get it on your first few tries. The timing takes some time to get used to, and you may be surprised that you got it right when you finally do.

    Control The Study Room Boss

    Upon reaching the Boss of the Study Room (Paper Morphy), wait for the level to begin. Wait until the piece of paper dips itself into the ink for the first time and flies down into the middle of the stage, transforming into a Gorilla, who will proceed grunt three times. Quickly press and hold Start on Controller 2 during the first grunt, and release it after the third grunt. If you were successful in entering the code, then you are now able to control the boss.


    The controls for the Boss are as follows:

  • D-pad Left or Right to make the boss turn left and right.
  • A and C to make the boss beat his chest.
  • B to have the boss pick Tongara up and slam him to the ground.
  • X to make the room light turn on and off.
  • C to make the boss Jump towards/on top of Tongara.

  • You can use this cheat to very quickly defeat this portion of the boss, as he stands completely still and takes damage. After this form of him is beaten, control is lost over the boss y the user, and the fight returns to it's normal state.

    Hidden within the second level of the Clock Tower is a hidden early exit that shows one of three hidden message screens, depending on if you are playing in Easy/Training, Normal or Hard mode.

    Playing on Easy/Training or Normal mode will present you with a screen featuring message from and a digitised version of an idol of the era known as Hiroko Nakayama (中山 博子) who in addition to being a presenter for the Japanese Video Game TV Show Game Catalogue II (ゲームカタログII) from April 1994 - September 1995, was also a big fan of the first Clockwork Knight game. She is also listed in the credits for the Japanese version of Clockwork Knight 2 where her role is listed as "Friendship Appearance (友情出演)" after the "Special Thanks" section.

    Playing on Hard mode will present you with a screen featuring a message from and a 2D render of Hirokazu Hamamura (浜村 弘一), who in addition to being an irregular host on Game Catalogue II, was also former Weekly Famitsu chief editor. The entire editorial department of Weekly Famitsu is thanked in the credits of the Japanese version of Clockwork Knight 2 under the "Special Thanks" section.

    Finding any of the three hidden screen will reward you with a gold key to collect in the Boss level of Clock Tower. All three screens also contain unique dialogue from one another, so it is worth checking them all out.

    The secret was briefly mentioned on the July 8, 1995 episode of the above mentioned Game Catalogue II, with some behind-the-scenes footage also shown.[1] Additionally, a longer segment of the behind-the-scenes footage was shown on the July 22, 1995 episode.[2]

    Upon completing the game, if you have managed to collect all 32 Playing Cards hidden throughout the different rooms of the game, you are greeted with a congratulations screen and are then presented with a special cheat code.

    Despite speculation on other sites, this cheat code is simply the same level select cheat written above, and not a code for a "hidden options menu".
