Parent Species Hatchī

Hatchīfu (ハッチーフ[1]) are giant insect creatures of the Hatchī species. If Donkey Kong is riding a Helibird, a Hatchīfu will attack him by blowing the Helibird with gusts of wind. If Donkey Kong is on the ground, they will shoot at him. They can be stunned by using the sound wave attack and Donkey Kong can then leap on him and punch him. When defeated, they will leave eight beats.

Hatchīfus are first encountered in Helibird Nest in the Strawberry Kingdom, near the end of the level. They are later encountered in the Peach Kingdom's level Ancient Foundry and even later in the Pear Kingdom's level Clock Tower.
