Squidges[1] are jellyfish enemies from Donkey Kong Country who have large eyes on top of their heads. They appear only in underwater levels, such as Croctopus Chase. They are not very aggressive, as they simply only swim from side to side in a basic pattern, making them easy to avoid. Sometimes they move in a quicker pattern in later levels in big groups. Enguarde is the only thing in the game able to defeat these enemies.

Many of them also appeared in Club Nintendo's comic adaptation of the game, trying to attack Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.
