What is a Neek?

The term neek is a cross between nerd and geek. It is used as a derogatory insult for people who do not fit in with current culture or fashion trends.

A Neek is a person who has no street smarts, they have no knowledge of the streets and do not know how to stand up for themselves when they are being threatened or bullied. They also do not have a good sense of humor and tend to make sarcastic jokes that are very obvious and unfunny. They also have a bad attitude and do not respect anyone. A neek is someone who will never be successful in life.

Typically, they are very intelligent and love technology but do not know how to use it in a real world setting. They usually talk about the latest television drama shows and movie franchises with their friends, while others are discussing a new Star Wars book or arguing over the best Now That's What I Call Music compilation.

Neeks are weak enemies, similar to Gnawty from the first Donkey Kong Country and a single Neek makes a cameo appearance in the Club Nintendo comics adaptation of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, along with other monsters. In the game, they make a squeak when attacked and can be defeated by jumping on them. They make their debut in the first level of the Gangplank Galleon, and they reappear in both DK: King of Swing and DK: Jungle Climber.
