Squidges[1] are jellyfish enemies from Donkey Kong Country. They could be based on the box jellyfish, due to their four large tentacles, and have large eyes on top of their head. Squidges swim in a basic zigzag-like pattern, some at a faster pace than others. Squidges can only be defeated by Enguarde's stab attack. They only appear in the last two underwater levels, Croctopus Chase and Poison Pond, where they are sometimes encountered in groups. Squidges are the only underwater enemy that do not appear in Coral Capers. The ending credits shows a scene of a Squidge being chased by a Chomps Jr. in DK's Tree House, only for the Chomps Jr. to return on-screen, fleeing from four Squidges. In the Game Boy Advance remake, the event takes place in the water beneath Gang-Plank Galleon, where the Squidges are instead chased by a Chomps.

Squidge was originally known as "Mr Squidge" earlier in development.[2]

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