Winky the Frog is a one-time Animal Buddy from Donkey Kong Country who aided the Kongs during the attack on Donkey Kong Island. He is first found in the first level of Monkey Mines, where the level, Winky's Walkway, is named after him.
Donkey Kong Country
Though Winky's only playable appearance was in Donkey Kong Country, he was very helpful then. He, being a frog, had a great jumping ability, far surpassing the Kong's, and higher than any other Animal Buddie's jump. Winky also had the notable ability to be able to jump on a Zinger's head and defeat it. His jumping ability is usually used to reach bonus areas or to grab some bananas. He would later be replaced with Rattly the Rattlesnake in DKC2.
His latest appearance was in Donkey Kong Country 2's Monkey Museum, but only in the SNES version. Here Winky was a background Easter Egg, though appears to be put to rest judging by how he does not move, and is on sale for $5.
