Zingers are large wasps who are recurring enemies in the Donkey Kong franchise, and they first appear in Donkey Kong Country. Zingers are always found flying in midair, and each of them move around continuously in a specific pattern—either horizontally, vertically, or in a circular motion. Zingers are impervious to many attacks, and the standard way of defeating one is by throwing an object, typically a barrel, at it. Most Zingers are colored yellow, although they have a couple of red-colored relatives who are unaffected by even more attacks, and using a TNT Barrel is the standard way of defeating them.
