Yellow Snaggles, also referred to as simply Snaggles or Nibbles, are variants of Snaggles who appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and its Nintendo Switch port. They are yellow and have stripes like those of tiger sharks.
Donkey Kong Country Returns / Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
In Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Yellow Snaggles appear in the Beach world and some other levels, including Damp Dungeon. Like regular Snaggles, they leap out of the water at regular intervals, but quickly follow with an additional leap without signalling it. Yellow Snaggles can only be defeated by a barrel. If Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong touch a Yellow Snaggles, they lose a heart from their health meter. Yellow Snaggles make dog-like noises while jumping out of the water, just like regular Snaggles.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port, Yellow Snaggles are only encountered underwater, where they chase after the Kongs. As such, they no longer jump out of the water. They are found in Shoal Atoll and Panicky Paddles. Yellow Snaggles can be defeated with Cranky Kong's underwater cane attack or by throwing a projectile at it, such as a barrel, a Watermelon Fuse Bomb, or a Tuff Tucks, while on land.
