Squidges[1] are jellyfish enemies from Donkey Kong Country who have large eyes on top of their heads. Due to their four large tentacles, they may be based on the box jellyfish. They only appear in the last two underwater levels Croctopus Chase and Poison Pond. Squidges swim in a basic zigzag-like pattern, some at a faster pace than others, and they are sometimes found in groups. Squidges can only be defeated by Enguarde's stab attack.

During the ending credits of Donkey Kong Country, a Squidge can be seen chased by a Chomps Jr. in DK's Tree House. A few seconds later, the Chomps Jr. returns on-screen, fleeing from four Squidges. In the Game Boy Advance remake, the event takes place in the water beneath Gang-Plank Galleon, and a Chomps replaces the Chomps Jr. that chases the Squidges in the end credits.

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