Munchers are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They only appear in the eighth level of the Forest (Donkey Kong Country Returns), Muncher Marathon. Munchers are small black spiders who are hatched from their eggs (which look like a bag of full of oranges) after the Kongs (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong) break two logs. Munchers are the most dangerous enemies that appear in the level, Muncher Marathon, and probably one of the most dangerous enemies in the game. You see, Munchers chase the Kongs in huge groups throughout the entire level. If the Kongs are caught by the Munchers, they instantly lose a life. It is best to run or roll through the level to avoid the Munchers with ease. Probably because Munchers are in groups and are dangerous to the Kongs, they cannot be defeated. Munchers may be a sub-species of Skittlers.
