Porcupal are porcupine-based foes encountered in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, within the Bright Savannah levels.

Overview[edit]

Porcupal seem to be a homage to Spiny and Bristles enemies of the Super Nintendo Donkey Kong Country games; they are porcupine enemies that cannot be jumped on due to their prickly backs. Porcupal are distinguished from the Spiny and Bristles with their ability to set their bodies on fire. Porcupal usually patrol an area, walking back and forth, and upon seeing Donkey Kong and co., they ignite themselves on fire and move quicker. The only way to defeat them when on fire is with a Barrel or water sac being thrown at them. Eventually their flames will die out if left alone, and they can be defeated normally.

In Frantic Fields, Porcupal that are curled up and on fire are encountered, being carried by the air towards Donkey Kong. They can only be avoided in this level; not even Rambi can defeat a lit Porcupal.
