Squidges are uncommon underwater squid-like enemies in the original Donkey Kong Country. They are small in size but often appear in groups.


Donkey Kong Country

Squidges do not target the Kongs, rather swim in up-and-down weaving patterns. This makes them predictable, but still dangerous when encountered in groups. As with other underwater enemies, a single stab from Enguarde's bill will defeat them. Squidges only appear in the last two underwater levels of Donkey Kong Country: Croctopus Chase and Poison Pond. In the former, they move in a zigzag direction; in the latter, they move diagonally. Touching them will damage the Kongs.

Squidges are also part of a small, humorous section in the game's credits, where after Squidge and a Chomps Jr. were introduced, the Chomps Jr. would chase the Squidge across DK's Treehouse, but flee moments later from a group of four Squidges.

Donkey Kong Country (comic)

A group of Squidges also appeared in Club Nintendo's comic adaptation of Donkey Kong Country, attacking Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.
