The Char Chars are enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They resemble flaming rocks and first appear in world 8, Volcano. They hop around, pausing for 1 second after each jump. They can only be killed by blowing them out or throwing a barrel at them. Pounding the ground while they are next to the player will repel them. They have another variant known as the Ultra Char-Char, which is invincible, and much larger. They, unlike their larger cousins cannot fly in lines, but just bounce left and right, still making them formidable.
Char-Chars have a scared and surprised expression. They have cracks in their skin that look like molten lava, and also have almost 3D rendered eyehole. They leave behind flaming visual decals.
