Squitter the Spider is a large orange-and-black haired spider and an Animal Friend in the Donkey Kong franchise. His first appearance is in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. He also appears in the sequel, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and in each game's Game Boy counterpart: Donkey Kong Land 2 and Donkey Kong Land III.
Squitter is one of the few spiders in the Donkey Kong series to actually have eight legs, whereas most others simply have six. Despite this, Squitter still lacks some spider features, such as multiple eyes and chelicerae. Squitter also wears four pairs of orange-white shoes, which resemble those worn by another Animal Buddy, Expresso the Ostrich,.
Squitter has the ability to shoot out an unlimited supply of web projectiles from his mouth, which he can use to defeat most enemies, including Zingers, although in Donkey Kong Land 2 and Donkey Kong Land III his webs have shorter range and will disappear shortly after being shot. He also has the ability to create temporary web platforms to reach higher areas, such as a Bonus Area, or to cross a large gap. However, Squitter does not have the ability to jump at the height of the Kongs.
In Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2, Squitter cannot defeat an enemy by jumping on it, as this injures him in the process. In their sequels, Donkey Kong Country 3 and Donkey Kong Land III, Squitter has the ability to do so, although it is no more effective than the Kongs' jump attack because he cannot defeat stronger enemies like Buzzes this way. This ability was removed from the Game Boy Advance port.
In Donkey Kong Land 2 and Donkey Kong Land III, the player can have Squitter create web platforms by pressing then .
Squitter makes a cameo appearance as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. He later appears as a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In it, Squitter is an advanced support spirit which negates the jump and speed reduction effect of the sticky floors.
