Gnawties are beaver enemies who appear in the Donkey Kong series. They first appeared in Donkey Kong Country.

This enemy's role is simply walking into a Kong. Several other Donkey Kong enemies share this characteristic, such as Neek. Gnawties can be defeated by either jumping on their head or by tossing a projectile weapon at one. They also have different color varieties in Donkey Kong Country, all with identical traits. There are two Gnawty bosses about four times the size of a regular Gnawty: Very Gnawty and Really Gnawty.

In Donkey Kong Land, Gnawtys are much more common than they were in Donkey Kong Country. They can be encountered many times.

Donkey Kong 64

In Donkey Kong 64, Gnawtys are rare enemies who appear in the DK Isles hub world, Jungle Japes and Crystal Caves. In this game, they are cyan-colored and are slightly bigger than the Kongs. They squeak if they walk or run. In a minigame featuring Rambi, they must be defeated to earn points. They also star in a minigame called "Beaver Bother", where a Klap Trap must guide a certain amount of them into a pit.

  • There is a single Gnawty in Banjo-Kazooie's Click Clock Wood. Unlike the other Gnawtys, this one is not an enemy. In the game, Banjo and Kazooie must destroy a boulder blocking the path to his house. He is like Very Gnawty in terms of size and color.
  • A Millstone Gnawty rides in Donkey Kong Country can be seen in Donkey Kong's field in Mario Superstar Baseball.
  • Gnawty's name is a portmanteau of the words "naughty" and "gnaw".
