Mugly is a boss appearing in the game Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. He is the first boss that Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong face. Mugly is faced in the Jungle area and his mission is titled Mugly's Mound, where he is hypnotized by Kalimba. He is a relative of Thugly, the boss faced at the end of the Cliff area.
At first, Mugly is a yellow dinosaur-like monster. He walks on all fours and has a huge mouth with many white, crooked teeth. Mugly has two lazy eyes as well. The monster is covered with red spikes that he can retract at will. During Mugly's second stage, he becomes orange instead of yellow. In his third and final stage, he turns from orange to red.
Mugly only has four attacks. His most basic attack consists of running across the screen back and forth. If he touches Donkey Kong, he will swallow him whole, then forcefully regurgitate him. If Donkey Kong is regurgitated with one heart left, he is spat out of the arena. During this time, his spikes are retracted, which makes him vulnerable to a jump attack. Mugly can also bounce along the stage, trying to crush Donkey and Diddy beneath him. His spikes are also retracted during the entirety of this attack. During Mugly's second and third stage, he can jump high in the air and create a huge shockwave when he lands. Also, during Mugly's second and third stage, he can charge fast at the duo, but this can be easily jumped over. This causes Mugly to run into a wall and succumb to dizziness. The Kongs then have a chance to jump on him while he is unconscious. During each stage, he attacks more often and performs them faster.
In Time Attack mode, Mugly has to be defeated in one minute and fifty-seven seconds for bronze, one minute and twenty-three seconds for silver, and fifty-six seconds for gold. For a shiny gold medal, Mugly has to be beaten within thirty-eight seconds.
