Squidges are underwater squid-like enemies in the original Donkey Kong Country. They are somewhat rare, and usually appear in groups.
Squidge do not target the Kongs, rather swim in up-and-down weaving patterns. This makes them predictable, but still annoying if in groups. As with other underwater enemies, a single stab from Enguarde's nose will finish them off.
Squidge in Donkey Kong Country are also part of a small, humorous section in the game's credits, where after Squidge and Chomps Jr. were introduced, Chomps Jr. would chase Squidge across DK's Treehouse, but later flee from an angry group of four Squidges after the Chomps Jr.
Squidges only appear in the last two underwater levels of Donkey Kong Country: "Croctopus Chase" and "Poison Pond". In the former, they move in a zigzag direction; in the latter, they move diagonally.
