Bristles is an enemy in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III. Bristles replace Spinies from the previous game, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.


Bristles, due to them being hedgehogs, are invulnerable to most attacks from Dixie and Kiddy Kong. Usually, Bristles walk around a set path and damage the Kongs if they come in contact with it. However, the Kongs can defeat a Bristles by rolling into it from the front.

Later in the game, some Bristles start to curl up and roll in one direction. When they're curled up, they can't be damaged and should be avoided at all costs.
