Winky the Frog is an Animal Buddy from Donkey Kong Country who aids Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong during the attack on Donkey Kong Island. He is first found in the first level of Monkey Mines, Winky's Walkway which is named after him. He also has the ability to jump at high lengths in the air, much like real-life frogs can do. He can also defeat some enemies that the Kongs can't defeat by themselves such as Zingers.

Winky makes a cameo appearance in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest in the Monkey Museum as a figurine and in in Game Boy Advance remake, he is found in a cage in Cranky's Hut and smaller Winkys can be seen in swampy levels hopping around. He has related abilities to Rattly the Rattlesnake who can bounce really high too.
