Squidlies are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They first appear in the Beach (Donkey Kong Country Returns), and then appear in a few more levels in other parts of Donkey Kong Island after that. They can be defeated by any attack, whether it is a jump, a Barrel thrown at them, etc. However, they can mainly be defeated by hitting a wall. Squidlies are always shot out of Turrets. They move in a straight line after being shot in the direction the turret is facing. Inside the Turret, it is possible to tell when a Squidly is going to be shot by looking at the eyes peeking out of the Turret. Its concept artwork reveals that a crab controls the Turret. It may be a Snaps or Pinchley. Squidlies are like Bullet Bills because they are shot out of cannons and go left or right.
