Leap is a Mudskipper and Animal Buddy in Donkey Kong Continent. He is a large brown mudskipper with a few orange spots on his back. He has two abilities: when he is on land, he has a flip attack. Also, he is the only playable character that can swim in lava.
He has his own level dedicated to him in Donkey Kong Continent, titled Lethal Lampreys. This is also the first level he appears in.
- His name is based on the fact that both skipping and leaping are a way to move.
