A Jellybob as seen in Donkey Kong Country Returns
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong Country Returns|
|Home||Donkey Kong Island|
|Enemies|| Donkey Kong|
Jellybobs are jellyfish-based enemies who made their very first appearance in Donkey Kong Country Returns, but are still based off of past jellyfish-like enemies such as the Squidge. Just like the Snaggles, these enemies are undefeatable by conventional means and can only be completely done away with by way of a Barrel or DK Barrel. They are slightly odd enemies, to be certain, given the fact that every past jellyfish-based enemy in the Donkey Kong Country series up to this point have shown up only in underwater levels, as such a species should be expected to. But since no completely underwater levels exist in Donkey Kong Country Returns, the Jellybobs can only be found hovering in the open air above exposed bodies of water in Beach world-based levels. These enemies remain in one fixed spot and constantly move up and down in a vertical direction and can successfully harm any passing Kong with a touch.
Jellybobs, unlike previous jellyfish-based enemies, look rather realistic in appearance so far as real-life jellyfish are concerned. They are an entirely trans-blue colour with flat, bulb-shaped heads and wiry tentacles coming out of the ends of their bodies. Their skin gives off a dangerous electrical discharge on occasion.
