The Buffaloafer is an enemy in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It is a large, purple buffalo which is very hostile towards the Kongs. It is one of the hardest regular enemies to defeat.


Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze[]

If it sees one of the Kongs, it will immediately charge at them. If they hit the player with their horns, they deal one heart of damage. If the player attempts to jump on their back, they will be bounced off, temporarily losing control, though they will take no damage.

They can be defeated by luring them to a ledge which causes them to flip onto their backs. While they are upside-down, the can be stomped on their belly three times to fully defeat them. Rolling into them as they are charging can also cause them to flip, while Cranky Kong can deal damage directly with a cane bounce. A much simpler method is to throw something at them, such as a water sack. This will defeat them instantly.
