Colonel Pluck is the penultimate boss in Donkey Kong Country Returns. He serves as the boss of the Factory. While under the influence of the Tiki Tak Tribe, he is responsible for making new Tiki Goons, Tiki Tanks and Tiki Torches by smashing bananas into mush with the help of his robot: the Stompybot 3000. The Tiki leader that has possessed him is Accordion. His robot will walk and will turn red at some points. When he tries to squash you, run unless he spins his robot. If he does so, duck and grab on the chains, then pound on his robot, continue this process two more times and the second phase of the fight will begin, first, he will drop about 7 eggs, then, he will try to squash DK, stomp on him three more times, and then he's defeated. After Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong defeat him, he ends up pinned underneath the remains of his giant robot.
- Colonel Pluck's name (as well as him being a chicken) is a pun on "Colonel Sanders", the founder of KFC, a chain restaurant known for its fried chicken.
- It is to note that in the cutscene preceding his boss fight, Pluck shakes off his hypnosis after seeing Donkey Kong. This implies that they know each other, and seeing his friend made the Colonel realize his hypnosis.
- In addition, Colonel Pluck is the only character other than DK, to show some resistance to the hypnosis.
