Variant of Squidly

Electrasquids[1] are enemies found in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are a red variant of Squidlys who constantly emit blue electricity, and they have a whirling spiked blue cone on their head. Like Squidlys, an indefinite number of Electrasquids are also fired out from the Squid Shots.

Due to their electricity and spiked cone, Electrasquids cannot easily be defeated by the Kongs. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong must avoid Electrasquids, as contact with one electrocutes the Kongs, causing them to lose a heart. The Kongs can only defeat an Electrasquid by throwing a barrel at them, although every Electrasquid is eventually defeated when they hit a wall.
