Lurchins are common sea-urchin enemies found in a majority of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!'s levels that feature water. Lurchin are green colored urchins that have spiky, harmful shells. A larger version called Barbos is its boss form.


Donkey Kong Country 3

Lurchin, as stated above, appear in various levels that feature water. Even some boardwalk levels have them. Their attack pattern is to stay in place and slowly open and close their shell. Contact with its spiky shell will injure a Kong or Enguarde the Swordfish. Lurchin's weakness is when it opens its shell and Enguarde stabs into its open body at the right time, but the blue Nibbla can also eat it. Note when it eats it, it becomes angrier. Enguarde's way of killing it is also exploited with its larger boss form, Barbos.

Donkey Kong Land III

Lurchin here remain relatively unchanged. The larger boss form, Barbos, also reappears and can summon them.
