Pogobots[1] are Ready-Bot enemies found in the Factory area of Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are springed robots constantly surrounded by electricity, which protects them from direct attacks from Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. Pogobots continuously move back and forth, as with most other enemies. The Kongs can defeat a Pogobot by throwing a barrel or a BuckBomb at them.

Pogobots first appear as a silhouette in the level, Foggy Fumes. In their subsequent level appearances, Pogobots are shown in their entirety.
