Donkey Kong Country
Mini-Necky debuts in Donkey Kong Country. They attack Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong by spitting out coconuts, which move horizontally in the Kongs' direction. Some Mini-Neckies move up and down while spitting out coconuts. The Kongs can defeat a Mini-Necky in the same way as a Necky: either by jumping on them or by hitting them with a barrel. However, if the barrel hits one of Mini-Necky's coconuts, it breaks. Mini-Neckies appear in four levels:
In the Game Boy Color version, Mini-Neckies appear in two more levels: Winky's Walkway and Necky Nutmare, which respectively make up their first and last level appearances. Mini-Neckies and their larger counterpart, Necky are the main enemies in Vulture Culture and Necky Nutmare.
Donkey Kong Land
Mini-Neckies make another appearance in Donkey Kong Land where they have the same role as in Donkey Kong Country. They appear in the same number of levels:
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
Mini-Neckies also appear as enemies in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Aside from Zingers, Mini-Neckies are the only enemies that return from Donkey Kong Country. To correspond to the game's pirate theme, Mini-Neckies wear red polka-dotted bandannas on their heads. They appear slightly larger than in Donkey Kong Country.
Unlike Zingers, Mini-Neckies act different than in Donkey Kong Country. When a Mini-Necky notices Diddy and Dixie Kong, it swoops down, attempting to hit them. They also have a deeper voice than in the previous game.
The game also features a large Mini-Necky boss, Krow, who is later fought as Kreepy Krow. The latter's identically titled boss level features several ghostly Mini-Neckies which swoop at the Kongs individually; only one of them is normal, and the Kongs must jump on that one to make a barrel appear. The Kongs can throw the barrel at Kreepy Krow to attack him.
During the ending's Cast of Characters, a Mini-Necky appears under the Lazy Landlubbers category.
Mini-Neckies appear in many levels, more than in Donkey Kong Country:
Donkey Kong Land 2
Mini-Neckies make their fourth appearance in Donkey Kong Land 2, where they retain their role from Donkey Kong Country 2. They only appear in two levels, Kannon's Klaim and Mudhole Marsh. Krow and his undead alias, Kreepy Krow, also return as bosses. Mini-Neckies also appear in the game's Kreepy Krow battle with the same role as before. Because of the Game Boy color's monochromatic palette, the normal Mini-Necky cannot be distinguished from the other ghostly Mini-Neckies.
During the ending, a Mini-Necky appears under "The Baddies" category, and is erroneously named "Necky".
DK: King of Swing / DK: Jungle Climber
Mini-Neckies reappear in DK: King of Swing and its sequel, DK: Jungle Climber. Their feathers were changed from black to blue in both. In these games, Mini-Neckies attack by spitting coconuts at Donkey Kong or charging at him, as in Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2, respectively. In DK: King of Swing, Mini-Neckies are most common in the Wild West World.
Donkey Kong Barrel Blast
Mini-Neckies appear as blue balloon items in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. When used by a racer, the Mini-Necky homes in on the nearest opponent behind the racer and rams into them. This results in the opponent losing ten bananas. If a Kremling uses a Mini-Necky, the opponent also loses a Wild Move.
