Kuro Buta Pokkī are a small, round-shaped variant of Gale Hawgs from Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. They have a lighter counterpart named Shiro Buta Pokkī, and both enemies have green markings on their body, small feet, and small tusks.

Kuro Buta Pokkī generally appear in groups, but they can also appear alone. They do not directly target Donkey Kong and only move around in a specific area. They are among the weakest enemies, and can simply be defeated by clapping; this causes them to fly off into the air. Donkey Kong can then leap and punch them back toward the ground. Defeating them causes three bananas to appear.

Kuro Buta Pokkī are found in various parts of the game. They first appear in the Banana Kingdom's level Dawn Savanna, with one being near the beginning of the level; this makes them the first enemy to appear in the game.
