Army is an armadillo enemy in Donkey Kong Country, first appearing in the level Ropey Rampage. Its attack is rolling around, trying to ram into the Kongs.


Army's main attack pattern is to curl into a ball and ram forwards or backwards. They make a sound effect upon doing so to indicate it. When Diddy jumps on it or rolls into it when it is curled up, he will bounce off it and the Army will go back into a standing position through a recoil. However, when Donkey Kong jumps on it they are defeated instantly, due to his sheer strength (though rolling into it even with DK will make the Army recoil). Armies are also one of the enemies that comes out of Dumb Drum, the 5th boss in the game.

Armies return in Donkey Kong Land, unchanged. A bigger version of an Army named Army Dillo appears in Donkey Kong 64. They have also been seen in a trailer for the canceled game Donkey Kong Racing.






  • In first game, Army's defeat sound is a sped up version of Donkey Kong's defeat.
