Pinchleys are Snaps that turned pirate whom appear as enemies in the Wii game, Donkey Kong Country Returns. Unlike Snaps, Pinchleys wear pirate bandannas and are much stronger than their weaker counterparts. To attack, they will begin heading towards Donkey Kong in an attempt to deliver damage. Once DK lands a hit on its head, the crab will lift up its claws and continue attacking. Once that's done, the ape will have to roll into the crab to finish it off. They can also be defeated by jumping on them, pounding when it lifts up its claws, then jumping down on it.
