Giant Pillars are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They first appear in the Jungle only in the level Canopy Cannons. They are a giant sub-species of Screaming Pillars. They behave just like Screaming Pillars (they scream when the Kongs (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong) near them after sleeping and collapse onto the ground, however, their scream is not high-pitched and they take out the Kongs by just touching them. Giant Pillars, unlike Screaming Pillars, cannot be defeated.
