Not to be confused with Dottie.
First appearance Donkey Kong (Game Boy) (1994)

A Dotty[1] is an enemy from Donkey Kong for the Game Boy. Dotties appear in the Forest, making their debut in Stage 2-1. They behave similarly to Rappies, walking in circles around the environment, up walls and on the ceiling. In several levels, Dotties walk considerably faster than Rappies, making them harder to avoid. They do not hurt Mario, though they can push him around and are invincible. They can also be stood on, but not picked up. Snipers act as a damaging counterpart to them.
