Tuffton appears as large male gray owl, with yellow eyes, white eyebrows, blue beak, white mustache with hair ties, white chest, and grey talons. He wears a belt with a Snowmad Insignia and a strap on his right. He appears to be exactly like the Puffton, only the Tuffton wears a dented helmet on his head.

Game Appearance and Strategy

Tufftons can fly horizontally, vertically, or stay put airborne. With a tuffton wearing a helmet on his head, the Tuffton can protect himself from being jumped on; meaning that when a jumping on the Tuffton, he'll take no damage. However, one way to defeat a Tuffton is with Cranky Kong with his stick. They can also be defeated by throwing a barrel or even an enemy such as a Tuff Tuck or a Tuff Fluff.
