Waldoughs are uncommon enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. They are overweight walrus members of the Snowmads with brown skin and blond whiskers. They also wear green striped shorts.

Similarly to Tiki Dooms from the predecessor, Waldoughs have a robust stature and walk slowly from side to side. If the Kongs bump into a Waldough, the enemy flings its arm and damages the Kongs, taking a heart point out of their counter. To defeat a Waldough, it must be stomped three times. Alternatively, the Kongs can roll into it three times, throw a barrel at it, or use Rambi to run over it.

Although not the game's most recurrent enemy, the Waldoughs are reserved as the primary antagonistic race of the game, as shown by their leader being the main antagonist, 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.

Various members this species are large, have different whiskers, big tusks, deep voices, and walk slowly. Waldoughs shares the same voice clips as Tucks (albeit lower-pitched) when they are slightly hit with a Ground Pound.
