Painguin Tucks are enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. They are penguin-like members of the Snowmads who wear green trousers, a belt with the Snowmad insignia, and carry a dead fish on a stick for their weapon. Their name a portmanteau of "pain" and "penguin". They have a bulkier counterpart known as Papa Painguins.

Painguin Tucks can be defeated by a jump or a roll attack on their back. They can also be stunned by a Ground Pound if the Kongs are close enough, and can also run faster upon seeing the Kongs.
