Donkey Kong 64

Shruis return in this game as uncommon enemies. Shruis can be first encountered in Angry Aztec in the Monkey Temple and very commonly later in Gloomy Galleon. Shruis swim around in the water until they spot a Kong. Shruis will then swim toward the Kong and do a spinning cartwheel at them. Another species of Shruis known as Scubis also appear in this game. They attack with a whip instead of a spinning cartwheel. They also appear as the main enemies of the minigame Splish Splash Salvage.
