Waldoughs are walrus-like members of the Snowmads and common enemies in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. Waldoughs have brown skin and either blonde or white whiskers, and they wear green-striped shorts belted with a rope.
Similarly to Tiki Dooms from Donkey Kong Country Returns, Waldoughs have a robust stature and walk slowly from side to side. If the Kongs encounter a Waldough, the enemy flings its arm and damages the Kongs, which takes away one heart point of damage. The Kongs can defeat a Waldough by either jumping or rolling into it three times, throwing a barrel at it, or hitting them with Rambi.
Although they are not the most recurrent enemy, Waldoughs are reserved as the primary antagonistic race of the Snowmads. This is shown by their leader, Lord Fredrik, being a Waldough, and by the amount of walrus-themed imagery throughout the game; for example, in Dynamite Dash, various TNT Barrels are emblazoned with a walrus skull.

- Prima's Official Strategy Guide (page 17): "The large walrus is big and beefy, and when you encounter you[sic] first Waldough, it is by far the toughest enemy you have come in contact with at that point in the game. It takes three Roll Attacks to defeat these big brutes. You can also bop them over the head three time to fell them for good."
