Mice in the Donkey Kong universe are a species of rodents whom inhabit various locations. In their appearances they're usually minor enemies that make no actual effort to attack.

Appearances in the series[edit]

Donkey Kong (Game Boy)[edit]

Mice made their first appearance in Donkey Kong for the Game Boy, simply known as "Mouse". Here they were usually found asleep; however if Mario were to go near a mouse it would wake up and chase. Mice in Donkey Kong are quite fast and touching one will hurt Mario.

Donkey Kong Country 2 / Donkey Kong Land 2[edit]

Mice would make their next appearance in the second game of the Donkey Kong Country trilogy, Diddy's Kong Quest. The mice, called Neek are basic ship rat style enemies. Neek would make squeaking noises when close. They simply walk forward and will hurt the player if touched. Neek can be defeated with a cartwheel, projectile, or by being jumped on.

Neek return unchanged in Donkey Kong Land 2.

Donkey Kong Country 3 / Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

Mice are also in Donkey Kong Country 3. Now known as Sneek (pictured), they are less cartoonish but aside from appearance, function the same as in the previous game. One change is how they interact with Animal Buddies. In a comical scenario, Ellie the Elephant will freak out and run away if she sees a Sneek in front of her.

Sneek return in Donkey Kong Land III. Ellie appears to have gotten over her Sneek phobia at the time and no longer flees from them.

Other games[edit]

Neek would later reappear in DK: King of Swing and DK Jungle Climber, where they climb on pegs and serve as obstacles.
