A Shuri as seen in Donkey Kong Country 2.
Shuri is a rather tough starfish enemy found in the under water levels of Donkey Kong Country 2, Donkey Kong Land 2, and Donkey Kong 64. He also made other appearances in DK Jungle Climber and DK King Of Swing. His physical appearance consists of being a red pinkish color or an orange color, he is mainly medium sized but this varies. The orange Shuri`s just spin up and down through the water, while the red pinkish colored ones lie in wait and charge anyone who comes near.
Shuri`s appearances in Donkey Kong Country 2 are rather common, with him appearing in most or all under water levels. In this game the orange colored Shuri or the lighter one just spins around under water for the Kong`s to avoid, swimming into him may result in loss of a life. This Shuri is fairly easy to avoid and can be defeated using Enguarde who is a swordfish Animal Buddie. The red or darker colored Shuri`s tactic in this game is to hid in wait and than charge the Kongs. If the Kongs are not swimming fast enough it`s easy to take a hit and lose a Buddie or lives. Enguarde can be an aid for the Kongs during levels when this Shuri is around because of his faster swimming. Enguarde can also defeat this Shuri by charging head first into him.
Shuri`s roles are identical to his roles in Donkey Kong Country 2 in this game. With swimming around trying to hit the Kong`s or charging them.
The lighter colored Shuri makes an appearance in the Nintendo 64 title Donkey Kong 64 where he tries to run into the Kong`s and cause lost lives. He is larger in this game than in the others and is pretty rare due to the few underwater levels in this game.
Shuri makes a couple appearances in these two games as well and it is thought that his roles are the same as before.
