Squid Shots are wooden turret machines appearing in Donkey Kong Country Returns and its port, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are short, cylindrical, and have a cannon on each sides. They use Squidlys and sometimes Electrasquids as projectiles, and their firing line is always straight. A Squid Shot may have its own shooting pattern, sometimes depending on its position; some Squid Shots can be found stacked on top of each other. Squid Shots themselves are harmless and can be stood on like solid platforms, but they can’t be destroyed. They behave similar to Bill Blasters from the Mario Series.

Before Squidlies or Electrasquids are Shot out, the Squid’s eyes can be seen looking in the direction they’re going to shoot. If it is looking to the left, it shoots to the left. If it is looking to the right, it shoots to the right, if it is looking straight, it fires in both directions. Squid shots are first seen in the level Sloppy Sands, where they are the main enemy. A squid shot is then seen in the beginning of Blowhole Bound, later in Tidal Terror, and then in the Cliff level Tippy Shippy. Their final appearance is in Five Monkey Trial.
