Variant of Mimic

Large Mimics[1] are enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. They act just like their smaller relatives, the Mimics. They can only be found in Busted Bayou, a silhouette-themed stage in Lost Mangroves.

Camouflaged inside large shrubs, Large Mimics wait for the Kongs to approach them. After arriving at a close distance, the Large Mimics startle and begin chasing them. The chase becomes an aimless gallop throughout the surrounding area if the Kongs dodge the monsters. Large Mimics can hurt the primates with a bump. However, any sign of attack can put an end to a Large Mimic.
