Corkscrew (Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze)

From the Super Mario Wiki
Donkey Kong attacks a Red Finley with a Corkscrew

Corkscrew is an underwater special move in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. The move can be executed by any of the playable characters and can be used to attack most submerged enemies, such as Finleys and Gordos, or to collapse flimsy structures in order to reveal items. It can be performed in place or while swimming, offering some momentum in the latter case. If Donkey Kong or Funky Kong are alone, they can only perform a Corkscrew at a time, but if they are assisted by a partner, they will be able to Corkscrew continuously. The move is comparable to the land-based Roll Attack.

The Corkscrew move can be executed by:

  • pressing X Button or Y Button, when the player uses the primary controls of the Wii U GamePad;
  • pressing ZL Button or ZR Button, when the player uses the secondary controls of the Wii U GamePad;
  • shaking the Wii Remote when the player uses only the Wii Remote;
  • shaking the Wii Remote and Nunchuk when the player uses both the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk.
