Species Hippopotamus
First appearance Donkey Kong 64 (1999)
“I reckon that if you can feed my buddy Scoff over there, he might be able to overcome my slight weight problem.”
Troff, Donkey Kong 64

Scoff is a giant blue hippopotamus that the Kongs meet in Donkey Kong 64.

In every area of Donkey Kong 64 (except for Hideout Helm) the Kongs come across a Scoff n' Troff Portal which transports them to Scoff and his buddy Troff. It seems Troff has eaten too much and in order for him to reach the key to a Boss Door, the Kongs must feed Scoff a certain number of bananas so he can lift Troff up to the key using a see-saw like mechanism.

After the Kongs defeat King Krusha K. Rool, both Scoff and Troff retreat to DK's Tree House, where they party with the Kongs and their friends.

Language Name Meaning
Japanese スコーフ


Scoff, sans piercings.
  • Scoff's appearance in-game bears piercings on their nipples; though their earlier artwork reflected that (including in the instruction manual), it was subsequently removed in later promotional material. The same occurred to their counterpart, Troff.
  • Every time Scoff eats bananas he grows tremendous, only to inexplicably shrink later on.
