Arich (Japanese: アーリック Ārikku) is the second boss in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, and the third in Donkey Kong Land III. It is a giant red-colored tarantula that hangs by a web, capable of spitting green balls of venom.

There is a Banana Bird Cave in Kremwood Forest that is named after Arich: "Arich's Hoard".

Description[edit]

Arich's Ambush[edit]

In Donkey Kong Country 3 he is fought at the end of Kremwood Forest, in Arich's Ambush. It drops down from the screen and starts spitting green venom balls. Its main attack pattern is bouncing from his web and spitting the venom, which ricochet and various angles. Kiddy Kong or Dixie Kong must attack Arich by throwing barrels at its face. After taking damage, Arich will spit green venom balls. After 4 hits, it will be defeated. In the final blow, Arich will blast up, flip over, and be considered unconscious. He will then give a Patch.

Arich Attack[edit]

Arich made another appearance in Donkey Kong Land III as the boss of the third area, Blackforest Plateau. The level name was changed to Arich Attack. Arich was notably smaller, due to limitations. Despite that, the battle is similar to DKC3's, sans the barrels. First, Arich releases three balls of venom. The Kongs jump on its head, causing him to bounce around at a much faster rate to try and crush them. Arich must be hit four times to be defeated.
