Mangoruby is the fifth boss of Donkey Kong Country Returns. It is an unusual plant-like caterpillar that resides in the Forest region of Donkey Kong Island.


Mangoruby is mostly plant-like in appearance. It appears to have a mango (hence its name)-like head and a leaf-like mane. Its eyes are purple with black pupils and its eyelids resemble bright yellow flowers when open and purple buds when closed. Its eyes are also very sensitive to light. It has two long leafs at the back of its head which appear to be its arms. It has a long vine-like body with 6 radish-like body segments. These segments have the ability to release electricity to attack its enemies. It also has a tail fin made out of leafs that regenerates itself every time it dives into the water after having lost a body segment.


When Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong managed to pass through all the obstacles of the Forest, they arrive at a large hollowed-out tree where they find Mangoruby peacefully sleeping, but just then a large group of Tikis led by Panflute attack, then proceed to hypnotize the oblivious Mangoruby and use it to defeat the Kongs. However in the end Mangoruby was defeated,freeing it from Panflute's control, for Donkey to send Panflute flying out the tree.
