Winky the Frog is a one-time Animal Buddy from Donkey Kong Country. He is first found in the first level of Monkey Mines, Winky's Walkway, which is named after him.


Donkey Kong Country[edit]

Though Winky's only playable appearance was in Donkey Kong Country, he was considered to be very helpful. Being a frog, he had a great jumping ability, far surpassing the Kong's and every other Animal Buddy's jump. Winky also had the notable ability to jump on a Zinger's head and defeat it. His jumping ability is usually used to reach bonus areas or to grab some further-up bananas. He would later be replaced with Rattly the Rattlesnake in DKC2.

Donkey Kong Country 2[edit]

Winky's latest appearance was in the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country 2's Monkey Museum. 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.
