Bones (also called Krossbones and Bone Kritters) are enemies that appear in Donkey Kong 64. They are skeletal Kritters that are first found in Fungi Forest during nighttime and later at Creepy Castle as the most common enemies there. They are rather uncommon enemies to encounter overall due to appearing late in the game.
Bones tend to patrol an area until they spot a Kong. When they attack, Bones mainly swing their bone club. However, this attack tends to miss especially against smaller Kongs like Diddy Kong and Tiny Kong; so, Bones may deliver a short-ranged kick that is effective and certain to hit up close. If a Bones are attacked once by a weak attack, it's head will fall off but will still be able to move around easily. After enough hits, they will be defeated.
