Green fish[1] are pufferfish-like enemies summoned by Fugu, the Frightening in his battle from Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Green fish always stay inflated, but unlike their master, they lack spikes. Their bodies are textured with light green stripes.

Green fish are sometimes exhaled by Fugu, along with Sea Urchins at times, and are then propelled towards the Kongs. They become less frequent as the battle goes on, being replaced by urchins in later stages of the battle. Green fish grant damage to the playable characters if simply touched without using a Corkscrew attack or Cranky Kong's cane swipe. Even so, green fish are not instantly defeated, but are only launched back. They die if they bounce into a hermit crab or Fugu himself, damaging the boss.
