Cageberries[1] are a variety of Toothberries appearing in Donkey Kong Country Returns and its port, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are blue furball-like enemies with white fangs, making them essentially Toothberries that appear in golden cage with brown bars, which isolates them from the Kongs. Though they are trapped in their cages, Cageberries can cause the cage to move. Donkey Kong can Ground Pound near the cage to flip it over, making it able to be stood upon. If he stands on the cage and Ground Pounds, the cage will be plunged into the ground. Eventually, the cage will pop up, acting like a trampoline. If untouched while being flipped over, the Cageberries will eventually flip over and return to their normal mode.
