Mincer is an enemy found in Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land. They appear to be spiky sphere-shaped spike balls that cannot be defeated, not even by Animal Buddy attacks. They appear to act like Zingers, except they are spike balls and cannot be defeated in any way so therefore must be avoided. They appear in Manic Mincers, Poison Pond, and Torchlight Trouble in Donkey Kong Country. It appears only in Spiky Tyre Trail in Donkey Kong Land. They may move in various patterns.
