Buckies (バッキー[1]) are bat enemies in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. When they appear, Buckies lie in wait, hanging upside down on the ceiling of the area. If Donkey Kong gets too close to a Bucky, they will fly at him, damaging him if they hit him. By using the sound wave attack, they will be stunned, floating in midair for a few seconds before the effect wears off and they fly back toward the ceiling. If Donkey Kong grabs it, he can kick it at the ceiling, causing it to explode and leaving three beats behind. If any Buckies are in their path as they fly up, they will be defeated as well.

Buckies first appear in Massive Canyon. They later appear in the Cactus Mine.

Another species called Ice Buckies appear in most ice-themed levels. Another sub-species called Fire Buckies even later appear in volcano-themed levels. A third sub-species exists, which are called Sea Buckies, appear in three water stages in the game: Pristine Sea, Sweet Paradise, and Arctic Plunge.
