Gray Creepy

A Creepy is a worm[1] enemy that only appears in Donkey Kong 3.

They cannot usually be defeated, so when Stanley sprays them, they stop and swing. However, the Power Spray is potent enough to defeat them in one shot. In blue and gray greenhouses, one crawls along the platforms at the bottom of the screen. If it is sprayed enough before reaching the platform, the Creepy can be tricked into climbing up the vine for a short time. In a yellow greenhouse, three grey Creepies traverse the vines above Stanley and try to block his bug spray.
