Tawks the Parrot is a parrot animal buddy whose only appearance is in the Nintendo Switch version of the game Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

Overview

In the regular mode of the game, while the player is controlling Donkey Kong, if they go to the Funky's Fly 'N' Buy shop, Tawks stands on a perch behind Funky Kong. In the Funky Mode, while the player is controlling Funky Kong, Tawks takes the role of the shop manager, sporting a pair of shades similar to the ones worn by Funky, and standing on his perch closer to the screen. Funky, being the shop owner, receives a discount on all items purchased from Tawks. He is very similar to Funky, displaying a mellow personality.

Appearance

Tawks is a parrot, sporting blue, red and yellow feathers. He also has purple visor sunglasses, which helps to reinforce his cohesiveness with Funky Kong. He also has a rather gray beak, along with a black top part to it, in contrast with his very vibrant body, which also applies to his feet and talons. He has a long mohawk that is janky in shape, and it is jumbled up in some places.

Trivia

  • Considering the similar naming convention between Tawks, Squawks the Parrot and Quawks the Parrot, it can be assumed that they are related, probably belonging to the same family.
