First appearance Donkey Kong 3 (1983)

Vine Eaters are enemies appearing only in the arcade version of Donkey Kong 3. They appear only when the timer runs out and are immune to Stanley's bug spray. True to their name, they will chew through the vines suspending Donkey Kong from the roof of the greenhouse. Stanley must defeat DK before the Vine Eaters devour the vines, or DK falls and Stanley loses a life.
