Nids are harmless spider-like enemies exclusive to Kremwood Forest. They have a good jumping ability and have platforms on their backs, which is rideable. Some hop in curved arcs, other straight up.


There are two types of Nid. Yellow Nids constantly hop, while purple Nids only start hopping when someone jumps on their plank. Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong must be careful when utilizing a Nid as it can cause the Kongs to end being knocked into an enemy, in most cases a Buzz.

Yellow Nids were eliminated for Donkey Kong Land III, and only purple Nids remain (although because of the graphical limitations, he really has no true color). Other than that, the Nids' purpose has remained the same.


  • The credits of Donkey Kong Land III list Nids in the "Baddies" group, although in this game is not possible to be harmed while utilizing Nids.
