“Flitter hover in many locations. Bouncing off these dragonflies is a useful means of reaching hidden areas, but be careful!”
Flitters are dragonfly enemies that first appear in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. These flying insects primarily live in the swamps of Crocodile Isle; however, Flitters can be found all over the Kremling home island. These enemies are commonly used as air-grunts by the Kremling Krew. As such, Flitters spend their days flying in the air, on the look-out for K. Rool’s enemies. Flitters perform the same function as Neckies and Hogwashes from other games in the Donkey Kong Country & Donkey Kong Land series.
For Diddy Kong and his girlfriend Dixie, Flitters are among the weakest enemies in the Kremling Krew. In fact, just jumping is enough to defeat one. Flitters also don’t actively attack the Kong duo; they simply follow their flight paths, hitting anything in their way. While some Flitters fly in a straight line, other Flitters fly around in circles, guarding an important item. However, most Flitters are stationary, hovering in one place. Often, Flitters group themselves in long lines. As such, Dixie and Diddy can use this group enemies to reach some special spots, almost inaccessible for the Kongs.
Flitters also appear in Donkey Kong Land 2, where they act the same as they did in Donkey Kong Country 2.
Several Flitters can be seen in the trailer for the canceled game, Donkey Kong Racing.
Flitters appear in the following levels.
