Painguin Tucks are enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. Their name is a portmanteau of "pain" and "penguin." They are penguin-like members of the Snowmads who wear green trousers and brown belts with the Snowmad insignia, and they each carry a dead fish on a stick for their weapon. They have a bulkier counterpart known as Papa Painguins.
Painguin Tucks can be defeated by a jump or a Roll Attack on their backs. They can also be stunned by a Ground Pound if the Kongs are close enough, and they can also run faster upon seeing the Kongs.
