Painguin Tuckses are enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. The name is a portmanteau of "pain" and "penguin". They are penguin-like members of the Snowmads which wear green trousers and carry a dead fish.

Painguin Tuckses use the dead fish they carry as a spear to damage the Kongs. However, they can be defeated by a jump or a roll to their backside. Painguin Tuckses can also be stunned by a ground pound if the Kongs are close enough. They run faster when they see the Kongs.

A bulkier version of Painguin Tuckses called Papa Painguins are also featured in the game.
