Sour Dodo

Dozies[1] are uncommon enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. They are directly encountered in many areas of the Lost Mangroves, but a flock of Dozies and Sour Dodos can be spotted relaxing on a small isle in the background of Mangrove Cove.


Dozies resemble the now extinct dodo birds from real life. They are purple, small, and appear to be haughty, as evidenced by their walking style. Around their thin necks, Dozies wear a swim tube. Their head plumage, as well as their wing and rear plumage, is composed of feathers with orange-colored edges. They also have indigo-colored feet.

Behavior and combat[edit]

Dixie Kong defeats a Dozy

Dozies are generic enemies that do not actively attack the Kongs. They only walk back and forth, but peck and injure the Kongs upon simply bumping with them, draining one of their heart points. Dozies can be thus compared to Awks from Donkey Kong Country Returns. They have a rasher, more aggressive counterpart called the Sour Dodo.

It is possible to defeat a Dozy using any means of attack. A jump, a swift roll attack on either of their sides, or a barrel is effective against Dozies. A ground pound can stun them for a brief moment if the Kongs are close enough. They can also be stunned if shot by Diddy, Dixie, or Cranky's popguns.
