First appearance Donkey Kong (Game Boy) (1994)

Chikuchiku are prickly enemies in the Game Boy version of Donkey Kong. They are first encountered in Stage 8-2. Just like Sniper and Sukōpī enemies, Chikuchiku stick to and go around the environment, walking up walls and ceilings in the process; they are also dangerous to touch from any side. While most Chikuchiku walk at an intermediate speed, there is one that walks slowly and one that walks fast in Stage 8-2. Chikuchiku can be defeated with a hammer, but since this marks a rare occasion in the game, it is best Mario dodges them at all costs.

A dangerous spiked one.

It has spikes on its back, so touching it is a one-shot knockout. It moves quickly, making it quite a nuisance. You need to get the timing right or use a hammer to knock it down before moving on.
