an Ultra Char-Char

Ultra Char-Chars are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are much larger than regular Char-Chars. They appear in the Volcano world and are invincible. They are giant fireballs with a "tail" of fire that will continue to fly in a constant pattern until they fly off-screen and reappear. There is no way to kill them and the only way to avoid them is to duck underneath them or to go onto a different platform. They are able to survive underneath lava, and can fly in all directions, including diagonally. They only appear in the Volcano level Furious Fire, and then later in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D in the exclusive Golden Temple level Lavawheel Volcano.


The Ultra Char-Char has a determined yet anxious expression on their faces. They, like other Char-Chars, have cracks of lava in their skin, and have 3D rendered eyeholes.
