Mini Igas[1] are round, red creatures in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. When they are first seen, they are waiting in a stationary position. When Donkey Kong approaches them, they will begin to move aimlessly around. When the Sound Wave Attack is used on them, the Mini Igas will turn a black color, shrink, become immobilized, and return to where they started. If it is used again, they will be defeated and Donkey Kong will receive two beats for each one.
