A Frogoon in Donkey Kong Country Returns.

A Frogoon bouncing toward the Kongs.

Frogoons are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are green frog-like enemies who first appear in the Jungle (Donkey Kong Country Returns). They hinder the Kongs (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong by jumping up and down in place. They can jump higher than usual by inflating their bodies. Donkey Kong can easily deflate the Frogoons by jumping on them. Frogoons appear close to each other groups allowing the Kongs to defeat them all without landing on the ground. The Frogoon's name comes from the word "frog" and "balloon" since they can inflate themselves like a balloon. If the player watches a Frogoon very closely, they will see a small fly a Frogoon tries to eat.
