Papa Painguins are enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. They are penguin-like members of the Snowmads which wear green trousers, a viking helmet, and carry a spear resembling a fish skeleton. These characteristics are shared with both Pointy Tucks and Painguin Tucks.

Papa Painguins use their spear as a defense both front and back. They can be stunned from a Ground Pound and then defeated by a Roll Attack.
