Parent species Tucks

Boom Birds are uncommon enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. They are red Tucks with a yellow Mohawk who wear a wrestling belt. They carry around Watermelon Fuse Bombs with them.

Boom Birds usually walk back and forth with a Watermelon Fuse Bomb on their back. Once the Kongs defeat a Boom Bird, the watermelon bomb drops and the fuse lights up. In some levels, Boom Birds appear in the background, where they throw an unlimited supply of Watermelon Fuse Bombs at the Kongs. These Boom Birds cannot be defeated, and the bombs thrown by them either helps or detriments the Kongs based on the situation.
