Many Tomatoes are found in Fungi Forest during the night, at the area near Funky's Store. If the Kong gets near a Tomato, it lunges to attack them. Tomatoes are invulnerable to nearly every attack, even musical instrument attacks, making them the only enemy to be affected by the attack. Tomatoes can only be defeated by Chunky Kong while he is using his Hunky Chunky form.
When Hunky Chunky approaches the Tomatoes, the Worm tells Chunky that the Tomatoes ate all of its friends. The Worm fears that the Tomatoes will also eat it unless Chunky defeats them. Hunky Chunky can defeat a Tomato by jumping on it, causing it to squish. After Hunky Chunky rescues the Worm from the Tomatoes and relocates it and its house, the Worm rewards him with a Golden Banana.
