Sneek is an enemy who frequently appears in Donkey Kong Country 3 and Donkey Kong Land III. These rats are the Donkey Kong Country 3 equivalent to Neeks from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Gnawties of the original Donkey Kong Country.


Sneek are realistic mice enemies, designed to be less cartoonish from the previous mouse enemies. Their approach to the Kongs has not changed much from the Neeks and Gnawties from the prior games, however, as they merely walk along the ground of the area they're on, making them predictable.

Despite a non-threatening first impression when found normally, these mice actually have a much more important role in the game than ever before. Notably, they pose a threat to the animal buddy Ellie. If Ellie sees one, usually under a light, she will freak out and be forced to retreat out of fear, in Murky Mill. In the level Squeals on Wheels, they appear to be running in mills to power the factory, and must be defeated to advance through the factory. In Stampede Sprint, Ellie gets terrified by three of them scaring her, and Ellie stampedes away, hence the level name.

In Donkey Kong Land III, Sneeks do not scare Ellie.
