Donkey Kong attacks some Squidlys at Blowhole Bound.

Squidlys[1], or Squiddles[2][page number needed], are enemies first appearing in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They serve as projectiles shot out of Squid Shots and have a stronger relative species referred to as Electrasquids. They move in a straight line in the direction the Squid Shot is pointing at. Although Squidlys move slowly through the air, they can harm the Kongs upon contact, similarly to Bullet Bills from the Mario franchise. Squidlys can be defeated by any of Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong's attacks, but they usually crash into a wall where they are destroyed.
