BuckBots[1], are robotic chickens that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They only appear in the Factory area of Donkey Kong Island. BuckBots basically move around from one direction to the next, attempting to run into Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. They can be destroyed by any attack method, causing them to break apart in a puff of smoke. In the level Feather Fiend they are released from eggs shot by the Stompybot 3000. Some of these BuckBots drop hearts when defeated.

BuckBots and BuckBombs were most likely created by Colonel Pluck, considering that the BuckBots do appear during the boss fight.
