Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Tutorial Pigs are types of pigs that live on Donkey Kong Island and first appeared in Donkey Kong Country Returns, and reappears in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze . They act similar to a Star Barrel or a checkpoint and, throughout the game, they will teach the player how to use the controls and use certain game features such as the Rocket Barrel. As such, they could possibly be considered an Animal Buddy of sorts. They also suggest Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong to use Super Kong when they die eight times in a level. Tutorial Pigs also appear in other sections of the levels, indicating the Kongs should press buttons to do certain actions. The pig's appearance is very simple. He is very intelligent, has Einstein Pig glasses, and small, crunching teeth. He also appears during Time Attack Mode, coaching the Kongs in the Three, Two, One, Go! appearance.
