Squeeklies are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are one of the most common enemies (aside from Tikis) that appear in various levels. They make a prominent appearance in the fifth level of the Cave (Donkey Kong Country Returns), Crowded Cavern. Crowded Cavern features the Squeekly Family, a big group of bats which is made up of Squeeklies and their bigger sub-species who all use different attacks. Squeeklies are purple bat enemies who attack by just flying straight forward. In levels other than Crowded Cavern, Squeeklies can be defeated with a jump or a Barrel thrown at them.
