Thunder Roc's appearance consists of red feathers, a grey neck and head, and orange claws on its feet. It uses these claws to hold onto a black egg.
Thunder Roc's attacks consist of shooting feathers at DK, sending wind toward him, firing three Shadow Meteors, and sending a shadow-like creature to attack him. When reaching beneath 300 HP, Thunder Roc will gain the ability to shoot many more feathers at Donkey Kong, as well as firing a gigantic Shadow Meteor. It will also move faster as it takes more damage.
Thunder Roc can only be attacked by dazing it, accomplished by striking any part of it, including the egg, and then headbutting the egg numerous times. When defeated, the egg will shatter, and Thunder Roc will explode.
