Tomatoes,[1] also called giant tomatoes,[2] are large, mutated tomato enemies in Donkey Kong 64, possibly inspired from the tomatoes from the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes franchise. They have a sinister-looking face and a set of sharp teeth. A few Tomatoes appear in Fungi Forest during the night, at the area near Funky's Store. If a Kong is nearby, the Tomato lunges at them. Tomatoes are invulnerable to nearly every attack, including musical instrument moves, and can only be defeated from Chunky Kong jumping onto them as Hunky Chunky. This is required to help the Worm, who says that the Tomatoes ate all of its friends, and fears it will be next.
