Yellow Snaggles (ピョングィ, Pyongwi in Japan, or キラングィ, Ki Rangwi in Japan), also known as Nibbles, are yellow shark enemies that appear in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, and later in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. They jump out of water or pursue the Kongs underwater, trying to bite them.

Overview[]

Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D[]

In Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Yellow Snaggles are found in the Beach levels and the Ruins level Damp Dungeon of the Donkey Kong Island. They behave slightly different from the common variants, blue Snaggles. They will take a normal jump, wait, and then spring up higher and faster for the second jump, taking inattentive primates by surprise. They can be defeated by throwing single barrels at them, just like blue Snaggles.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze[]

In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Yellow Snaggles lose their ability of jumping off water. With the heroes' new swimming skill, if the Kongs go inside their patrolling area, the enemies will pursue and try to bite them. When underwater, it is impossible for the primates to defeat Yellow Snaggles. They must avoid these enemies at all costs. However, Yellow Snaggles still can be defeat by the heroes throwing single barrels, watermelon bombs or Tuff Tucks at them from outside of water.

Physical Appearance[]

Yellow Snaggles are variants of blue Snaggles, but have a yellow color for their bodies. They resemble great white sharks[1] with round bodies, covered in stripes, it being more evident in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Yellow Snaggles also have two rows of sharp teeth and seem to display a malicious grin.

Trivia[]

  • Despite their color schemes and more cartoon-like appearances, Snaggles and Yellow Snaggles are often confused with Chomps, shark enemies from the game Donkey Kong Country.
