Cling Cobra as seen in the game Donkey Kong Country Returns for Wii.

Cling Cobras are snake enemies from the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They will constantly slither around round platforms that, sometimes, the Kongs can climb onto, and harm Donkey and Diddy Kong if they touch them. These enemies are first found in the Forest level Clingy Swingy.


Cling Cobras are yellow colored enemies with brown eyelids. They also has a long, serpentine body, since they are snakes. They have an overbite, giving them a mischievous grin, and showing where their teeth should be.


Cling Cobras can be defeated by jumping on, rolling into them or throwing barrels at them. These snakes are also one of the few enemy types in the games which can be defeated by the ground-pound move, however the player must use the move when they are really close to work without harming the Kongs in the process. Cling Cobras can also be defeated by peanuts shot from the Diddy Kong's Peanut Popguns.
