They cannot usually be defeated, so when Stanley sprays them, they stop and swing. However, the Super Sprayer 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 the aracade version of the yellow greenhouse, three gray Creepies traverse the vines above Stanley and try to block his spray. In the NES version, all Creepies are yellow. In later rounds, the number of Creepies increase.
In Donkey Kong 3: Dai Gyakushū, Creepies move in midair horizontally via jetpacks instead of crawling on the ground.
