Squitter is a large orange-and-black haired spider and an Animal Friend in the Donkey Kong franchise. He is one of the few spiders in said franchise to actually have eight legs, whereas most others, such as Small Spiders from Donkey Kong 64 and Skittlers from Donkey Kong Country Returns, have six. Despite this, Squitter still lacks some spider features, such as multiple eyes and chelicerae. He also wears four pairs of orange-white shoes, which resemble those worn by another Animal Buddy, Expresso the Ostrich.
Donkey Kong Country series
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Squitter appears to assist Diddy and Dixie Kong on their adventure. He 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. 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, he cannot jump as high as the Kongs can in return. Squitter is unable to defeat an enemy by jumping on it, as this injures him in the process.
Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!
In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Squitter reprises his role, keeping mostly the same characteristics. Unlike in the previous game, Squitter can now defeat enemies by jumping on them, 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 version.
Donkey Kong Land series
In Donkey Kong Land 2, Squitter has the same role and functionality as he did in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. However, here his webs have shorter range, and will disappear shortly after being shot.
The player can also have Squitter create web platforms by pressing then .
Donkey Kong Land III
Squitter reappears in Donkey Kong Land III. His shorter web range and web platform button combination return from Donkey Kong Land 2. His ability to defeat enemies by jumping on them returns from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.
Super Smash Bros. series
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, where he is an advanced support spirit that negates the jump and speed reduction effect of sticky floors.
