Slump Birds[1] are a species of birds found in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. All Slump Birds found in the game are rulers of various kingdoms. All of the Slump Birds Donkey Kong faces must be defeated by breaking the huge black egg they carry.

The attacks the Slump Birds use primarily consist of firing Shadow Meteors, creating wind, and launching feathers.

There are four known types of Slump Bird: Thunder Roc, Hard Roc, Fleet Roc, and Scruff Roc.

  • Even though the black eggs aren't directly connected to them, their bodies are seen exploding after the destruction of their eggs. It is possible the reasoning for this is that the first explosion (caused by the black egg) is the one that causes the birds to explode shortly afterward.
  • The names of the four Slump Birds reference Rocs.
