Variant of Tucks

Boom Birds are uncommon enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. They are red Tucks with a tuft of yellow feathers on their heads and wear a belt around their waists. They always 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 bomb drops and activates. 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.
