Bouncelisks are enemies seen in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. They appear to be blue, striped lizards with long and coiling tails. Their name seems to be a portmanteau of the words "bounce" and "basilisk" (the common basilisk is a real-world species of lizard). They only appear in the Juicy Jungle area of the game.
Bouncelisks carry red berries on their backs. The Kongs can jump and bounce on the berry to gain a lot of height, enabling them to reach and collect some items. When a Bouncelisk sees the Kongs, it will move towards them hastily, attempting to bump and injure them. However, Bouncelisks can be stunned by hand slapping the ground near them, or can be defeated by attacking them with a roll attack or a barrel.
