Donkey Kong Country 3Edit
Lurchin, as stated above, appear in various levels that feature water. Even some boardwalk levels have them. Their attack pattern is to stay in place and slowly open and close their shell. Contact with its spiky shell will injure a Kong or Enguarde the Swordfish. Lurchin's weakness is when it opens it's shell and Enguarde stabs into its open body at the right time, but the blue Nibbla can also eat it. Note when it eats it, it becomes angrier. Enguarde's way of killing it is also exploited with its larger boss form, Barbos However, during the GBA level Ripcurl Reef, you can see golden shelled ones with green bodies..
Donkey Kong Land IIIEdit
Lurchin here remain relatively unchanged. The larger boss form, Barbos, also reappear and can summon them.
