Concept artwork

Fish Poker Pops carry a wooden pole with a spiky, bulging fish on each side. The horns on their viking helmet protects them from jump attacks. Fish Poker Pops use their pole as a weapon, raising it for a moment and then slamming it on the ground. When it lifts its pole, the Fish Poker Pops is vulnerable to a rolling attack. The Kongs can defeat a Fish Poker Pops by rolling into it three times. The enemy can be also be defeated with a barrel or with three of Cranky Kong's Cane Bounces. Additionally, in the Nintendo Switch port, Funky Kong can use his surfboard to attack a Fish Poker Pops.
