Skullyrexes are skull dinosaur head-like enemies that jump around while biting and appear mostly in the Cliff world of Donkey Kong Island in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. In most of occasions, the Kongs will meet the Skullerexes as small-sized variants to Skellirexes' skulls. But after receiving damage once, the Skellirexes' bodies will shatter and they will become similar to big-sized Skullyrexes.
