Electrasquids are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They first appear in the Beach (Donkey Kong Country Returns), and then appear in other levels in other parts of Donkey Kong Island. They are a sub-species of Squidlies. They are red squids with blue spiky shells on them which twirl around. Electrasquids have blue electricity surrounding them and cannot be defeated by any attack by Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. The only way an Electrasquid can be defeated is if they hit a wall. Like Squidlies, they are shot out of Turrets.
