Monocle Monicas[1] are dragonfly-like enemies in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. They wear a monocle on their left eye, hence their name. They only appear in Lost Mangroves levels, often around grass-covered walls or vines.

Monocle Monicas fly around on set paths. To move, they quickly shift between positions in mid-air: some fly between two positions, other between three in a line, and several follow a rectangular pattern. Monocle Monicas can damage a Kong upon contact, but the Kongs can defeat them using any attack method. If the Kongs are on a vine and a Monocle Monica flies upwards into them, it counts as being stomped on and defeated.

Monocle Monicas have bird-like beaks in-game, while in concept artwork, they are depicted with insect mandibles.
