"You wouldn't know it by looking at him, but Winky is one of the most powerful animals. He can jump higher than any of them, and with his strong legs, he can jump attack some enemies that even Donkey can't touch. Winky is fond of damp, dark places, but he is known to turn up almost anywhere!"

Winky the Frog is a frog-like Animal Buddy who appears in Donkey Kong Country who is useful when it comes to reaching high areas with his high jumping abilities and defeating enemies that Donkey and Diddy cannot defeat themselves. He was later replaced by Rattly in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. He, along with Expresso are Cranky's favorite Animal Buddies. He first appears in Winky's Walkway.

He is referenced, along with Expresso in the booklet for Donkey Kong 64 where Cranky says that the two of them should appear in the game instead of the swordfish and the bone-brained rhino.

He also makes a cameo in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest as an easter egg in the Monkey Museum (Cranky's Hut in the Game Boy Advance remake). Smaller versions also appear in swampy levels in Krem Quay as easter eggs in the Game Boy Advance remake.
