Toucan'ts[1] are small, black toucan enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port of the same name. They only appear in the Juicy Jungle area of the game. Toucan'ts have a red, green, and yellow beak and are always seen rolling on a green, spiked berry. Their name is a portmanteau of "toucan" and the contracted form of "cannot".

A Toucan't, as seen in-game

Toucan'ts balance themselves on top of their berry and roll along the ground. Occasionally, the berry will expel spores and send the Toucan't flying in the air. The Kongs can neither roll into the Toucan't because of the spiked berry, nor go under one, as the berry's spores can harm the Kongs as well. However, Toucan'ts can be defeated by jumping on their heads or throwing a projectile at them, such as a barrel.
