Buffaloafer are rare buffalo-based foes encountered in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, within the Bright Savannah levels.


Encountering a Buffaloafer can prove to be challenging, due to how it is fought. When a Buffaloafer spots Donkey Kong, it immediately tries to ram him. A Buffaloafer cannot be defeated by simply jumping on its head; instead, it can be defeated by rolling into its horns when it isn't charging or luring it into ramming a wall. Upon doing either of the two methods, it will flip upside down, revealing its belly, open for a stomp attack. Alternatively, a Buffaloafer can be defeated by luring it off of a ledge.

Cranky Kong can use his cane to defeat a Buffaloafer, by using the cane bounce three times on it.
