'Winky the Frog is a fictional character in Nintendo's Donkey Kong series. He is an Animal Buddy from the original Donkey Kong Country. Since he is a frog, Winky can jump extremely high. He can also defeat enemies that Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong cannot defeat by themselves. Additionally, Winky is one of Cranky Kong's favorite animal buddies along with Expresso the Ostrich). However, Winky is only playable in one game: the least number of playable appearances of all the animal buddies. In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, a Winky figurine can be seen in Cranky Kong’s Monkey Museum. Winky has similar abilities to another animal buddy, Rattly the Rattlesnake. Cranky Kong references him in the Donkey Kong 64 instruction booklet.
