Spinies are common enemies in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. They are generic porcupine enemies found throughout Crocodile Isle, whose backside and upper body are filled with spikes that the Kongs cannot touch without getting hurt, while their front area is vulnerable. Thus, do not approach the Spinies from the back or from midair.
In some levels, Klampons can be seen walking in front of them, so the Kongs cannot cartwheel into them. However, they can be jumped on, and the Kongs can land to proceed to defeat the Spiny. Sometimes Spinies walk in front of Klampons, so that when the Kong cartwheels into it, they may cartwheel into the Klampon's mouth. An easy method to taking out these partnerships with Klamptons and Spinies is to jump on the Klampton first, then finish the Spiny off with a cartwheel.
- They appear to be replaced by Bristles in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III.
- In the German GBA version of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest his name is Porkbelly.
