Electroids are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are purple orb-like droids capable of floating in mid-air, they resemble round cages with a glowing purple substance within them which appears to be electricity or plasma and they have two small eyes. They can only be found in the Factory area of Donkey Kong Island. They mostly appear in groups and are usually stationed over gaps or narrow passages that the Kongs must cross, they can also form an electrical link with each other which hinders the Kongs chances of passing even more. The only time they can be defeated is in the Switcheroo level in which if the player activates the switch platforms when an Electroid is passing over them they will be pushed out of the area.
These enemies reappear in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, but only in the level Frozen Frenzy. Here, they are seen either hovering along a set path in midair, or in place. Throughout the level, there are some tilting platforms with wires on either end. If the Kongs tilt one of these platforms too far, then the wire will touch an Electroid and electrocute the entire platform and injure them.
