Jellybob (Donkey Kong Country Returns)

From the Super Mario Wiki
A Jellybob

Jellybobs[1] are jellyfish enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They only inhabit the Beach area and are minor enemies, usually found bobbing up and down gaps between platforms. Jellybobs are based on jellyfish, with an entirely trans-blue color with flat, bulb-shaped heads and wiry tentacles coming out of the ends of their bodies.

Jellybobs primarily unleash electricity surrounding their body. Donkey and Diddy Kong must jump over them to avoid being electrocuted. Jellybobs can only be defeated by throwing a barrel at them.

A special, sparkling Jellybob can be seen near the end of Stormy Shore. Defeating this Jellybob with a barrel rewards the player with five Banana Coins surrounding a Red Balloon.[2]
