The Char-Chars are flaming rock enemies that appear in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.
Char-Chars are first found in the Volcano world of the Donkey Kong Island. They hop around, pausing for a instant after each jump. They can only be defeated by the Kongs blowing them out or throwing a barrel at them. Pounding the ground while they are next to the heroes will just repel them. Some Char-Chars move towards the same direction constantly, while other ones patrol over a single platform by jumping around it.
Char-Chars resemble flaming rocks with carved faces displaying a scared and surprised expression. They have cracks in their skin that look like molten lava, and also have almost tridimensional rendered eyehole. They leave behind flaming visual decals.
- Also in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Char-Chars have large variants known as the Ultra Char-Chars, which are invincible enemies and capable of flying at straight lines or parabolic trajectories.
