Mincers are spiked tire enemies and obstacles of Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land.

Appearances in video games

Donkey Kong Country

Mincers debut in Donkey Kong Country. In the game, they rapidly spin around, usually while airborne. Mincers may either be immobile, move back and forth, or up and down. The lead Kong or an Animal Buddy is injured if it touches a Mincer's spikes. Mincers are entirely invulnerable to any attack, including TNT Barrels. They are found both underwater and on land.

Mincers only appear in three later levels: Torchlight Trouble, Poison Pond, and Manic Mincers. They are the titular and main enemy of "Manic Mincers".

Donkey Kong Land

Mincers reprise in Donkey Kong Land, with an identical role to Donkey Kong Country's. They are prominently featured in the level "Spiky Tyre Trail". Mincers usually only appear in Bonus Levels, like in the levels Deck Trek and Button Barrel Blast.
