Species Origin Tucks

Pointy Tuckses are uncommon enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. They are penguin-like members of the Snowmads with a viking helmet and a collar with the Snowmad symbol.

Pointy Tuckses walk slowly from side to side, and jumping on them causes the player to take damage. The Kongs can also roll into them, throw barrels at them or use Rambi to defeat them. Alternatively, Cranky Kong's pogo bounce can defeat them.

In the game's intro, a Pointy Tucks can be seen looking through a telescope until he spots Donkey Kong's hut then he frantically goes the Lord Fredrik telling of his findings while others beat on drums and several bring their leader a giant magical horn.

They also have a shielded variant called Trench Tuckses and another variant with spear called Papa Painguins.

Pointy Tuck PointyTuckTrophyWiiU.png Wii U Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (02/2014) These penguin-like foes from Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze make up just part of the Snowmad army. The big horns on their helmets will make you think twice about jumping on them, and if they spot you, they'll charge at you with their spears. Slapping the ground stuns them, though. Take that chance to roll them into oblivion! When the Snowmad army invades DK Island in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, there penguin-like foes make up just part of its troops. The big horns on their helmets will make you think twice about jumping on them, but in the original game, you can defeat them by rolling or throwing barrels.
