A Tuff Tuck is regularly a Tuck but it wears a helmet, wristbands, and a belt with a Snowmad Insignia.
Tuff Tucks appear roaming in the levels of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. Tuff Tucks can attack with both hands or slap from behind. When jumping with a Kong on a Tuff Tuck, instead of defeating it simply, it will be flipped on its back, dizzy. A Kong can be able to pick up and throw the Tuff Tuck at another enemy, a target, or simply a hanging bag that can reveal a Puzzle Piece.
