A bouncing Tucks, jumping on jelly blocks around Donkey and Diddy Kong

In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, there is a variety of Tucks that bounces on springy objects, such as elastic drapes and jelly blocks. They bounce in one place or back and forth between two spots, damaging the Kongs upon contact. They can be defeated with any attack method, including stomping, throwing barrels or explosives, or rolling.

Compared to other Snowmad enemies, bouncing Tucks are rather uncommon in the game. A single bouncing Tucks can be found inside a windmill in the level Windmill Hills. More bouncing Tucks can be spotted in Jelly Jamboree. The different types of jelly blocks that appear in the level do not influence their jump height as they do with the Kongs. However, like the Kongs, bouncing Tucks are able to use blue jelly blocks to move certain mechanisms.
