Donkey Kong Country
In their debut appearance, Donkey Kong Country, Slippas appear in four levels: Reptile Rumble, Millstone Mayhem, Elevator Antics, and Misty Mine; all of them are subterranean except Millstone Mayhem. Slippas move by quickly slithering on the ground. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong can defeat Slippas by using any attack, including rolling, jumping, or throwing a barrel at them. When a Slippa is defeated, it makes a hissing noise. In Misty Mine, there are some black drums that release an indefinite number of Slippas.
Donkey Kong Country novel
A single Slippa appears as a minor antagonist in the Donkey Kong Country novel. As the Kongs explore the Abandoned Mines, Slippa and Army ambush the group. Slippa proclaims that "thessse minesss are oursss" and attempts to attack Diddy, but Diddy stomps him with a double jump. Slippa then escapes back into the darkness.
