Scruff Roc is the boss of the Orange Kingdom in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. It is a large, rainbow-colored Roc bird with an orange beak, a large, orange-colored neck, and orange claws, which are used to hold a massive black egg.


Scruff Roc's primary attack is flapping its wings to either fire sharp feathers at Donkey Kong, or create powerful winds to blow him away. To defeat it, the player must use the Helper Monkeys to catapult themselves up to the black egg that serves as its weak point, and damage it by headbutting it. Once its health is beneath 300, the player must use the Sound Wave Attack to stun Scruff Roc once they reach the boss or its egg, then grab onto the egg and headbutt it. Once defeated, both Scruff Roc and its egg explode.
