- Not to be confused with Wiggler.
Wiggles, originally known as Cling Cobras, are cobra-like enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and its Nintendo 3DS remake, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They only appear in the level Clingy Swingy.
Wiggles have a yellow body and an orange stripe spanning across their back. They have red eyes and a set of sharp teeth that match the yellow color of their body.
Wiggles' main characteristic is to cling on to a grass patch, which they repeatedly move across. If a Wiggle slithers into Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, they lose a heart point. This sometimes also causes the Kongs to lose their balance and fall off the patch of grass. The Kongs can defeat a Wiggle by jumping on it.
Cling Cobra's name is derived from king cobra, a type of real-world venomous snake.
