Squawks, Donkey Kong 64

The resident demon is a large skeletal demon/ghost found in Donkey Kong 64. It resembles a Kackle. It is one of the only Kremlings without the letter "K" in its name.

The resident demon is found in the Haunted Mine Cart Run, a mini-quest in the area Creepy Castle. After Donkey Kong uses his Gorilla Grab on several levers in the Skull Cave, he gains access to the Haunted Mine Cart Run.

The resident demon attempts to attack Donkey Kong with its disembodied claws. Each hit from it causes Donkey Kong to lose some of the coins he has collected. It cannot be hurt in any way; Donkey Kong must avoid its slashes and punches by jumping from rail track to rail track. When Donkey Kong reaches a section of the track with three parallel rails, the resident demon will fire several flaming skulls, which explode similarly to TNT Barrels and cause Donkey Kong to lose three coins if he is hit.

If Donkey Kong manages to collect twenty-five coins and finishes the Haunted Mine Cart Run, he gains a Golden Banana.
