Donkey Kong Jungle Beat[]

Tar Fish appears exclusively in Arctic Plunge and Aerie Fortress. It sits on the opposite of the screen waiting for Donkey Kong to be in range. When he is in range, it attacks him by spitting out a group of Black Fairies at him. To defeat it, Donkey Kong must use his Sound Wave Attack to deflect the Black Fairies back at the Tar Fish until it flips upside down. Once this happens, Donkey Kong can grab onto Tar Fish's back as it charges forward which causes it to hit ground. When defeated, the Tar Fish leaves behind eight bananas.
