Pea Frogs[1] are frog-like enemies in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. They are found in the Banana Kingdom's Jungle Deeps and the Pear Kingdom's Clock Tower; they constantly hop around throughout both levels. They can also harm Donkey Kong if he makes contact with them, causing him to lose a beat (a heart in the Wii version). Donkey Kong can immobilize a Pea Frog by using his Sound Wave Attack to cause it to inflate. If this move isn't repeated on them, the Pea Frog will return to its original size. Donkey Kong can either defeat the Pea Frog with a Ground Pound or by stunning it three times. Once it is defeated, three Bananas will be received.
