Bats, also known as Flipflaps, are a species of large bats that appear in some of the Donkey Kong titles.


Donkey Kong 64

A Bat in Donkey Kong 64.

Bats first appeared in Donkey Kong 64. They only appear in Fungi Forest at nighttime and Creepy Castle. Zingers replace the Bats during the day portion of Fungi Forest.

Bats only attack by quickly swooping into the Kongs; the active Kong can defeat Bats by either firing ammo at them, throwing an Orange at them, or from using their instrument move.

DK: King of Swing

Bats reappear as enemies in DK: King of Swing, and they were renamed to Flipflaps.[1] Flipflaps are basic enemies: they only flap around rapidly and try to attack DK or Diddy by doing so. Flipflaps are mainly featured in the cave levels.

Flipflaps were slightly redesigned in DK: King of Swing; they were recolored to purple except for the head, which remains blue. Their head is also bigger.

Donkey Kong Barrel Blast

Bats reappear in the racing game Donkey Kong Barrel Blast as obstacles in a few race tracks: Mt. Dynamite, Scorching Canyon, Mt. Dynamite Remix, and Dynamite Run.

DK: Jungle Climber

Bats also appear as enemies in DK: Jungle Climber, where they mainly appear in eerie forest levels.
