Spiny is an enemy in Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2.

Description[edit]

Spiny are generic porcupine enemies found throughout Crocodile Isle, whose backside and upper body are filled with quills that the Kongs cannot touch without getting hurt, while their front area is vulnerable. Thus, the player should avoid approach the Spinies from the back or air.

In some levels, Klampons can be seen walking in front of them, so the Kongs cannot cartwheel into them. However, they can be jumped on, and the Kongs can land to proceed to defeat the Spiny. Sometimes Spinies walk in front of Klampons, so when the Kong cartwheels into it, they may cartwheel into the Klampon's sharp mouth.

They appear to be replaced by Bristles in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III.
