Rawks are common, red parrot-like enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns that are related to the Awk. They are very similar to Awks, being considerably large, having long bodies, large orange beaks, and short legs. However, Awks are blue, with red feathers around their eyes and neck and have red tail feathers, and Rawks are red, with purple legs, purple tail feathers, and purple feathers around their eyes. They attack very similarly to their blue sub-species, by making a screeching sound and then charging at and attempting to bite Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong when it sees them, but moves more quickly and seems more aggressive. They can be defeated by being jumped on or being attacked with a barrel roll. Just like Awk, Rawk's name is wordplay for a noise a parrot stereotypically makes.
