A Stilts as seen in Donkey Kong Country Returns
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong Country Returns|
|Home||Donkey Kong Island|
|Enemies|| Donkey Kong|
Stilts's are common enemies found throughout the Ruins world of Donkey Kong Country Returns. They were first introduced in this world and showed up in the very first level: Wonky Waterway. Like the Tiki Goon and Frogoon, the Stilts is very simple to defeat and wields no definable attack either than running into an unwary player. They have extra height over the latter two enemies mentioned, making them a little trickier to get on top of and bash them, which must be done twice: once to knock this enemy off of their stilts and twice to completely squash them into oblivion as they run about panicked and entirely featherless.
The Stilts takes on the appearance of a half-chicken, half-peacock creature with large eyes and long legs. It is constantly found walking on top of two long, green stilts made out of bamboo chutes or running about with all of it's feathers missing.
