Squidly as seen in Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Squidlies are enemies from Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They appear in most Beach world levels, Cliff level Tippy Shippy and Volcano Key Temple Five Monkey Trial.


Squidlies are missile-like squids that are infinitely shot out of turrets, and when shot, they will move in a straight line in the direction that the turret shot them. They have small brown shells that are their main offense against Donkey and Diddy Kong. Since they are a mollusk, this is why they have a shell. They also have a rather surprised expression when they get shot out, opposed to the when it first gets shot, with a mad expression. Opposed to Electrasquids, Squidlies can be defeated by jumping on them. However, they are immune to roll attacks.
