“The web-slinging spider, Squitter, is one of the coolest new animal friends. When you press the Y Button Button, he spins webs that knock out enemies. He can also shoot web platforms that the pair can use to cross gaps in the terrain by pressing the L, R and A Button Buttons.”
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest manual, page 25

Squitter the Spider is an Animal Friend in the Donkey Kong franchise who first appears in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest; he is a large spider covered in orange and black hair which has a vague resemblance to lava.


Donkey Kong franchise[edit]

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest[edit]

In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Squitter can shoot webbing from his mouth, either as a projectile to hurt enemies or to make temporary platforms that can be used to reach high areas or cross gaps, however, he cannot jump on enemies and his jumping ability is actually worse than the Kongs.

Levels: Squitter has a level dedicated to him in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (Web Woods), which makes frequent use of his ability to spin web platforms.

Donkey Kong Land 2[edit]

In Donkey Kong Land 2, Squitter still lacks the ability to jump on enemies, so he has to fire webs at them to take them out. To make platforms, press B Button then Select Button before it disappears.


Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble![edit]

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Squitter appears in several of the levels in the Northern Kremisphere, most commonly in factory-setting levels. In this game, Squitter can now jump on enemies to defeat them, but he still can't jump on the enemies that are immune to Dixie's and Kiddy's jump attacks, such as the Buzzes.

In the GBA version, Squitter is unable to jump on enemies.

Levels: Squitter has a stage centered around him in this game as well (Krack Shot Kroc).

Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

In Donkey Kong Land III, Squitter maintains the ability to jump on enemies to defeat them.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Squitter appears as a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is an advanced support spirit which negates the jump and speed reduction effect of the sticky floors.

Language Name Meaning
Japanese スクイッター


  • Squitter is one of the few spiders in the Donkey Kong franchise games 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.
  • The four pairs of shoes Squitter wears resemble the one worn by Expresso the Ostrich, another Animal Friend, with the shoes worn by both characters having an orange and white color scheme.
  • While most real-world spiders produce silk from their backsides, Squitter is able to shoot it from his mouth. However, members of the spider family Scytodidae are actually able to spit harmful venom-infused silk from their chelicerae, and Squitter even resembles these spiders, as both have an orange coloration with dark spots.
