Squiddicus is a titanic-sized squid who shows up only one time in a single level featured in the Beach world: Stormy Shore. This is a very unique enemy to say the least, mainly given the fact that's it's strongly treated as a boss-type character even though it's classified as a standard enemy in comparison to the Beach world's actual end boss. Throughout this single level, Squiddicus comes into the picture about midway in after it's seen completely engulfing a vessel on the horizon. From there, this enemy's attack pattern consists of using it's massive tentacles in a variety of ways to put an end to the Kong duo as they traverse this dark and gloomy level.
This oversized enemy can completely destroy broken segments of a pirate ship that the Kongs use as makeshift platforms to get across the water, slide it's tentacles into the path of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong either on the floor or ceilings of watery caverns, and stick groups of it's tentacles in between random gaps, moving them up and down during the process.
Squiddicus takes after a rather conventional squid with typical cartoony attributes. It's skin is a mix of peach and beige tones with short, black spikes sticking out of the backsides of it's tentacle arms and bright blue-purple suction cups underneath.
