Skittlers are spiderlike enemies who make their very first appearance in the Forest world of Donkey Kong Country Returns. Overall, these are rather basic enemies in their own right and can be easily defeated with 1-2 jumps on the head. This is so due to the fact that the Skittler's attack pattern consists of either directly running into and biting you while crawling on the ground(which requires only one hit to defeat)or descending from a a solid overhead surface with a single strand of webbing(which requires two hits: one to knock them off of their web and another to finish them off once and for all).

[edit] Appearance

Skittlers, for the most part, take on the appearance of traditional spiders with a dark brown pattern on their bodies accented by jagged, light brown stripes covering it's surface. They have large, almost cute-seeming arachnoid eyes and an orange diamond-shaped patch near their rears.
