Parent species Waldough

Concept artwork

Fish Poker Pops protect their heads from normal stomp attacks with a sharp viking helmet, dangerous to land on. After noticing the Kongs, Fish Poker Pops begin to step furiously towards them, carrying a wooden pole with two spiky, bulging fish tucked onto it. This is used as weapon against the Kongs. When a Fish Poker Pops lifts the pole to hit them, he is open to a roll attack to his stomach. The player must repeat this process two more times to defeat a Fish Poker Pops. They can be alternatively attacked using a barrel, Cranky Kong's cane, and Funky Kong's surfboard.

Unlike other Waldoughs which share the same sounds, Fish Poker Pops have a more aggressive tone in their voices.
