Swirlwind is an obstacle/enemy which is a tornado in the Donkey Kong series.
Donkey Kong Land
They first appear in Donkey Kong Land as rarely found enemies. Their first level appearance is in Snake Charmer's Challenge, but only briefly and their second and final in Swirlwind Storm where they appear as the main obstacles.
These obstacles chase after Donkey and Diddy until falling down an abyss. This obstacle can also help the monkeys reach higher areas when jumped on the top including Bonus Levels. These obstacles also injure the monkeys when touched. They cannot be defeated in any sort of way, except for falling down an abyss. If the monkeys aren't careful, they may get caught in the Swirlwind which continues going until falling down an abyss.
