Hopgoons are a yellow variant of Frogoons from the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They move forward in one direction, instead of jumping in the same place like Frogoons do and they always stay still at regular intervals. Hopgoons are first seen in the Jungle level Tree Top Bop, and are common enemies in later Jungle world levels. Hopgoons are most common in the level Sunset Shore. They are also seen later in the Forest level Muncher Marathon.
Hopgoons are yellow, opposed to green, with teal colored eyes. Hopgoons also have a smug looking face, along with a lazy looking eyeshadow.
