Mini Slump Birds[1] are miniature Roc enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat There are two types that appear in the game: red one and black ones. The red ones appear in several levels, and attack by dropping spiked balls on him. They can also drop Blood Pines, which can be thrown back up at them to stun them. The player can then jump up on top of them and have Donkey Kong punch them down into the ground to defeat them for five bananas.
