Kowalees are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They only appear in the Golden Temple, the last world and level of the entire game. Kowalees are large, purple koalas in flying wooden carraiges to function similar to the Koopa Clown Car. Here in the Golden Temple, Kowalees occasionally fly into the Kongs' (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong) way and throw an unlimited supply of bombs at them, similar to how Lakitus throw Spinies in the Mario series. Kowalees are bigger than the heroes, so, with that being said, they cannot easily be passed. That means the Kongs must defeat them to progress. To defeat a Kowalee, the Kongs must pick up a bomb thrown by any Kowalee and throw it at them. Even though Kowalees, like Tiki Seekers, only appear in the Golden Temple, they are very common in this level/world.
