Squirt is a large creature resembling a slug, and is the boss of Cotton Top Cove in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is fought at Squirt's Showdown, a waterfall that serves as its personal domain.


The boss fight against Squirt

The Kongs transform into Ellie the Elephant during the entire battle against Squirt. Squirt attacks by shooting out a large stream of water from its mouth, which can push Ellie off the arena rather than injure her directly. Squirt performs this attack slightly longer for each time it is hit. After doing this, Squirt briefly exposes its eyes out from the waterfall. During this, Ellie can attack Squirt by drawing water into her trunk and then shooting into both of Squirt's eyes twice. This must be done three times to defeat Squirt. When the Kongs defeat Squirt, it leaves behind one of the Skis.

In the Game Boy Advance remake, the boss battle was slightly altered, as Squirt takes five hits to defeat. After the original three hits, Squirt begins shooting out two streams of water in opposite directions, then after being hit again, it has both streams circle the area at different speeds. In this version, when Squirt is defeated, its face falls off the waterfall, and the waterfall also stops flowing.

Squirt and Belcha are the only two bosses from Donkey Kong Country 3 to not appear in Donkey Kong Land III.
