Fritz are aquatic enemies that appear in the Sea Breeze Cove levels of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, starting with Deep Keep. Fritz are generally found in larger areas, though they sometimes appear in small spaces.
They resemble yellow moray eels, hence their plump throats and elongated bodies. Fritz are patterned with violet stripes extending from their heads to their rear sides, dissolving towards their end. Their fins are cyan (yellow in the concept artwork) and placed behind their necks. They also have an underbite, which frames a wide grin, and have a lazy eye. They have a violet crest that goes along their scruff.
Attacks and behavior
Fritz are stationary creatures that regularly warp themselves between places through their self-generated whirlpools. Between warps, they grab their tail into their mouths and start swirling rapidly, producing a load of electricity. The electricity is then discharged in the form of plasma balls, which are spread uniformly around the enemy. Fritz releases the plasma balls in a single direction, and they disappear after reaching a certain distance. If the Kongs come into contact with Fritz or its plasma balls, they lose one heart from their health meter. The Kongs can defeat a Fritz with a corkscrew attack (while it is not charged with electricity) or with Cranky Kong's cane swipe.
