Fireball (Donkey Kong)

Flames[1] are walking fireballs that wear sunglasses. They make their appearance in Donkey Kong 64. They only appear in Crystal Caves as part of one of Chunky Kong's Golden Banana missions. The rabbit Lanky Kong races in Fungi Forest appears tied to a TNT Barrel. These fireballs walk toward the barrel, trying to light the fuse. If a Flame comes in contact with the barrel, the barrel will explode. When they are about to blow up, they let out a small, high-pitched cackle. Chunky has a time limit to keep these fireballs from lighting the fuse. Despite being made of fire, they can be destroyed by physical attacks. After the time is up, and the rabbit is safe, Chunky gets a golden banana.


  • Flame's laugh uses a high-pitched version of the laugh used for Baron Samedi in Rare's GoldenEye 007.
