Pompy, often referred to as Pompy, the Presumptuous, is the boss of Lost Mangroves in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, fought in the level Big Top Bop.

Physical description[edit]

Pompy is a sea lion with a mustache, and wears a helmet with two spikes. He has two wristbands on his hands, and a collar with the Snowmad symbol on his neck. The Kongs encounter him inside a circus tent, where a battle between them follows.


Pompy attacks mainly by diving at the Kongs, which they can counter by jumping on his back. When hit, he escapes into the water and starts throwing enemies at the Kongs; usually small fish, but can also be larger fish or sea urchins. Afterward, he jumps back onto the stage, giving the Kongs an opportunity for attack. For every three hits that he takes, Pompy alters his attack plan (and gradually changes color) and starts rolling across the arena, requiring the Kongs to have to evade his attacks longer until Pompy starts sliding like normal again. During the second phase, Pompy will call upon penguins to either dive at the Kongs with him as an extra obstacle or dive at the Kongs while Pompy waits in the water. During the third phase, Pompy will also roll and jump onto the battlefield, which stuns him for a few seconds once he lands. Pompy is defeated once he takes nine hits.
