Blue Snaggles as seen in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

Snaggles are sharks that jump out of the water to bite at anything and are found in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are mainly found in the Beach levels, along with Ruins level Damp Dungeon. They look like great white sharks in their color theme. However, they have large heads and round bodies. The only way to defeat a Snaggles is to throw a barrel (of any kind) at it, knocking it out of sight.

There are many different kinds of Snaggles. The "Mega" Snaggles is found only in the Ruins level Damp Dungeon. This kind of Snaggles is more aggressive and will jump a lot faster. The Golden Snaggles are found mostly in the Beach world levels, and jump higher for a second jump than the common blue Snaggles. The Snaggles also appear in the Beach level Peaceful Pier, where they jump out of the water and try to damage the Rocket Barrel.

Snaggles later return in the game Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. They behave in similar way to the previous games. However, with the Kongs' new ability to swim, if the heroes dive in nearby a Snaggles, the shark will cease of jumping, pursue the primates and try to bite them. It is not possible to harm Snaggles when the Kongs are underwater. The enemy still can be defeated by the primates throwing barrels, watermelon bombs or Tuff Tucks at it. Cranky Kong's cane bounce attack can also defeat Snaggles, when the shark jumps out of water.



  • Despite their color schemes and more cartoon-like appearances, Snaggles and Golden Snaggles are often confused with Chomps from Donkey Kong Country.
