Buzzbites are insect-like enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They inhabit several levels of the game, namely Jagged Jewels, Vine Valley, and Five Monkey Trial. Buzzbites rapidly rotate their legs around their stubby bodies in order to move along platforms, walls, and grassy layers. Their appearance is that of a violet colored arthropod with cream and indigo striped legs. The Donkey Kong Country Returns Prima guide claims that Buzzbites are completely indestructible, whereas they can actually be defeated with a barrel or by falling into lava. Buzzbites will harm Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong upon direct contact and drain a heart from their health counter, but can be avoided with a jump.
