Frogoons are green frogs enemies that jump high or float above pits, found in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.


Frogoons are regular enemies found inside levels of the Jungle and Forest worlds of both games. They will usually stay at the same place, jumping high at regular intervals and inflating themselves, while trying to eat a fly around them.

Frogoons can be easily defeated by the Kongs using jump or roll attacks. Even projectiles shot by Diddy Kong's Peanut Popguns can defeat them. The only tricky part on attack them is that the player must be sure not to miss them, due to the fact that they suddenly jump. Another variant of the Frogoons can be found floating above ground or gaps, rising and descending constantly. That allows the primates to use the enemies as a bouncing platforms to collect floating items or traverse pits.

When defeated, Frogoons go flying off into the breeze in a fashion that is similar to a punctured balloon. Frogoons will often appear in a group of three or four, which allows the player to get Banana Coins by three or more consecutive jumps on them.

Frogoons also appear in the games Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe) as obstacles in both DK Jungle courses respectively. However, they actually behave as Hopgoons by simply jumping back and forth.
