Squitter the Spider is a large, friendly spider appearing an Animal Buddy in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Squitter, as his name suggests, possesses the ability to fire webbing from his mouth, that will either act as a projectile that can hurt enemies or become floating platforms that can be used to reach high areas or cross gaps.

Appearances

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest/ Land 2

Squitter first appeared in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest as an inhabitant of Crocodile Isle, first encountered in Crocodile Cauldron's first level and later in many other locations, such as Krazy Kremland. Squitter even has an entire level dedicated to him known as Web Woods, which makes frequent use of his ability to spawn web platforms. Squitter makes a return appearance in Donkey Kong Land 2. Squitter lacked the ability to jump on enemies in those games, so he had to fire webs on them to take them out. His jumping ability is inferior to the Kongs, but his ability to cross gaps on his webs makes up for it.

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!/ Land III

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Squitter appears in several of the levels in the Northern Kremisphere to aid Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong, commonly in levels taking place in a factory setting. Like in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest Squitter had a stage centered around him in this game, Krack-Shot Kroc. After his appearance in this game, Squitter returned in Donkey Kong Land III, which is, so far, his last appearance to date. Squitter gains the ability to jump on enemies in those games, but he still couldn't stomp on spiked enemies such as the Buzzes.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Squitter cameos as a collectible trophy.

Trophy description

A spider friend of the Kongs. Squitter features a patchy pattern and a fancy sneaker on each foot. With Diddy on board, Squitter will assist by spewing out webs that serve as projectile weapons or temporary platforms. These platforms can be used to access otherwise unreachable areas.

Web Ability

Squitter possesses a very unique ability to shoot webbing from its mouth, with two variations. Both are an extremely useful projectile in two ways. First off, it has unlimited range, has it can keep going from when it shoots it to when it leaves the screen. There are two types of webbing; the webbing that can hurt foes, and the webbing that can be used as a platform. Assuming the classic SNES control scheme, the "Y" button will shoot a fast web shot from Squitter's mouth, with great killing power. Kongs can move to follow the projectile, making it very effective as an unlimited ranged weapon against foes, as it can kill nearly every regular foe (including ones that can only defeated with barrels or two Kongs) in one hit. Pressing "A" will shoot a drastically slower web, though pressing "A" again will make the web stop in mid-air and spread out into a platform just big enough for Squitter to use. Squitter can jumps and do this, which can be very useful in avoiding enemies or getting across otherwise impossibly long areas. In fact, Squitter could literally make a web stair-like path to the very top of the screen, or just continue making a web-walkway above all the below enemies, making levels with him quite easy. Squitter is a very useful animal buddy to have, and many fans consider it the best animal buddy, besides Rambi, of Donkey Kong Country 2.
