An Awk as it appears in Donkey Kong Country Returns
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong Country Returns|
|Home||Donkey Kong Island|
|Enemies|| Donkey Kong|
Awks are one of two basic enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns, the next being Tiki Goons. They are extremely slow-moving enemies that can be defeated with a simple jump on the head or Kong Roll if there are multiples. Since they appear to be very mellow, slothful enemies, their attack pattern matches such traits. This consists of running into an unwary Kong and biting them with their large, hooked beaks. Considering the speed an Awk typically travels at though, you'd have to have given up by the time you've fallen prey to one of these attacks.
The Awk is a very bright enemy with bright blue feathers and a large, bright orange beak that sharply hooks near the end. It has a red collar around it's neck as well as large, red eyebrows that give it's facial expression a rather grumpy-seeming one.
