Cling Cobras are cobra-like enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, found only in one level of the Forest world Clingy Swingy. They cling on to grassy areas, waiting to slither into Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. This makes it harder for the Kongs to advance. They may even make the two Kongs lose their balance, causing them to fall down from the grassy area they are holding onto and into a pit, causing them to lose a life. Their entire body appears to be yellow except for their brown eyes, and they possess large, sharp teeth in their mouth.
The Cling Cobra's name is derived from the animal, the "king cobra", which is a real world venomous snake.
