Mugly is the first boss of Donkey Kong Country Returns. He can be found at the end of the Jungle world in the last level, known as Mugly's Mound. He appears to be a yellow dinosaur like monster with red spikes covering its body. These spikes can as well be retracted. During Mugly's second phase, it will turn orange and become larger. In its last phase, it will turn red and become larger.
Mugly wields only three attacks in his arsenal. The most basic one is running from one side of the screen to the other, it will retract its spikes and Donkey Kong can jump on it. Mugly will also bounce along the stage trying to crush Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. In its second phase, Mugly will jump into the air and create a shockwave when it lands, and the last attack consists of firing a beam of heat that fires off in several directions, with a range that covers the entire width of the battle arena. It takes three hits for Mugly to turn into its second phase, hitting it another three times will turn it into its last phase and three more hits will defeat Mugly.
