Puftups were blowfish enemies that can be found in the waters of Crocodile Isle and Donkey Kong Island. They've made their first appearance in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and their last appearance for the series in DK Jungle Climber.


[edit] Donkey Kong Country


The puftups were meant to appear on one of the stages in Donkey Kong Country, but the sprites to this enemy haven't been finished. The enemy has blue fins and an idle only animation. These enemies can be seen if the ROM has been hacked

[edit] Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

They would be semi-common enemies in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. They would have two attack patterns. The first would be they inflate, and make it harder for the Kongs to avoid them. They will sometimes inflate to the point that they will explode and throw spikes through the water. They can only be defeated by Enguarde.

[edit] Donkey Kong Land 2

They would make their next appearance in the pseudo-sequel, Donkey Kong Land 2. Keeping their appearance from the previous game, they lose their ability to explode.

[edit] Donkey Kong 64

Puftups would appear next in Donkey Kong 64. If they are approached by a Kong, they will explode. The boss of Gloomy Galleon would also be a giant Puftup called Puftoss.

[edit] Banjo-Tooie

Puftups makes a first appearance outside the Donkey Kong Universe.

The Puftups were recycled as Swellbellies for the game "Banjo-Tooie" that's entirely outside of the Donkey Kong universe. Despite the red coloring, the puftups were refurbished from the previous game "Donkey Kong 64", but with a bit of red coloring on the spots of it's body. They appear in the depths of Jolly Roger's Lagoon like Atlantis, Smuggler's Cavern, and Seabottom. They are aptly to explode if a Talon Torpedo is used or shooting Grenade Eggs at them.

[edit] DK Jungle Climber

Puftup's reappearance in DK Jungle Climber.

After years of absence, They've made their last appearance for the Donkey Kong franchise in DK Jungle Climber while they could only be defeated by a charged attack after they have deflated on this game.

[edit] Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

After several years in the Donkey Kong universe. The puftups are served as weapons on the race courses in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The puftups will inflate once they've been used by a racer. These fish will deflat after a player touches them, but it will cause the player to spin. They can be deflated with several different weapons other than Puftups. Unlike the Donkey Kong universe (including it's other appearance on Banjo Tooie), Puftups in this game have bigger pupils.
