Sea Breeze Cove
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Sea Breeze Cove is the fourth world and island in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It is opened once the Kongs beat Ba-Boom in the previous world, Bright Savannah. The boss of this world is Fugu, the Frightening, a blowfish foe whose main characteristic is an extreme ability to increase its body capacity with water.
Despite its name, the Sea Breeze Cove is actually set in an archipelago, as its map highlights. Its levels either take place on coastal land above water, or start off on land but take place mainly underwater. Many aquatic enemies appear throughout the world, including first-time enemies such as Fritz and Mama Saw, which are based on real-life electric eels and sawfish, respectively. Squiddicus makes a comeback after Donkey Kong Country Returns, in a stage called Irate Eight.
Primary ornamental features of Sea Breeze Cove are the the large stone statues, testimony of a fictional ancient civilization. Some protrude from the beach sands in the background, while other are sunken underwater. In a level called Rockin' Relics, these statues are powered by electricity, making sudden movements that propel various objects in the air. The statues can also be seen in what looks like a lofty underwater ancient corridor in High Tide Ride. According to Retro Studios artist Eric Kozlowsky, these ancient idols are based on "Jōmon dolls".
