Variant of Waldough

Walnuts are enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port. They are Waldoughs who wear blue trousers, an orange helmet, and a leather wristband on each hand. They are members of the Snowmads as shown from their insignia on their belt.

Walnuts slowly walk back and forth, and their helmet protects them from any jump attack. However, the Kongs can defeat Walnuts by either performing three roll attacks, throwing a barrel or using Rambi. Their helmet is not impervious from Cranky Kong's Cane Bounces, which can also be used to defeat Walnuts.
