Cling Cobras (スネーキィ, Sunēkyi in Japan), also known as Wiggles, 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 the enemies will bite them upon contact.


Cling Cobras first appear in the Forest level Clingy Swingy. They are found moving around circular wooden platforms which Donkey and Diddy Kong have to use in order to progress. That way, the primates must move past these enemies while avoiding certain contact and harm. Cling Cobras can be defeated by the heroes 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 the Kongs are really close to work without harming them in the process. Peanuts shot by the Diddy Kong's Peanut Popguns can also defeat Cling Cobras on the spot.

Physical Appearance[]

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.
