Candy Crush Frog

How do I use the Frog in Candy Crush?

From level 606 in Candy Crush Saga you will encounter the frog. The frog can be any colour that's on the board and can be matched like a normal candy. 
You can move it around the board and match it with candies of the same colour but it never goes away, and it doesn't fall down the board in cascades, gravity doesn't affect it!
It just stays exactly where it's put! 

At first glance it doesn't seem to do a lot, but watch closely as you match it with other candies of the same colour and you'll see it gets fatter and fatter, until after 4 matches the gravelly voice says "frogtastic".
A quick way to grow the frog is to use a colour bomb on the same colour candies as the frog, he will eat all candies removed by the colour bomb and grow to full size in one match normally.
He needs to eat 12 candies to grow to full size from empty, so take note of how many candies are on the board when you use a colour bomb to grow the frog.

Then you will se the frog pulses..It has a circle around it and is fat and round.
Now click on it and it will turn lighter. 
Then go to another part of the board that you want to clear and hover your mouse and you will see a pale outline around a group of 9 squares. Once you have the pale outline where you want it, click your mouse and the 9 squares will be completelycleared.
 Then The frog will go back to being small again and a different colour to start all over again.
If you want to clear underneath an ingredient be careful not to put the frog directly beneath the ingredient or it will block it from dropping down.
Also if there is a lot of licorice to clear don't put the frog in the middle or the bottom rows or the licorice will surround the frog afterwards and make it more difficult to grow it again.
If the frog is matched as part of a line of 4 it will turn into a striped frog, and next time you switch it, it will give you a line blast the same as a stripe would.
Likewise it you use it as part of a L or T shape it will turn into a wrapped frog! Switch the wrapped frog and you get a wrap explosion.
The same rule applies to a colour bomb so a very powerful tool in our limited Candy Crush arsenal.
Once the frog is full size you can switch it with any special which will cause the special to fire off as normal.
Below is a video showing the basics of how it works, although there are a lot of things it does that don't show on the video. To see the other ways to use the frog watch my other videos for the frog levels.

I'm very hoppy to find out about the frog.

I cannot get the frog to work to clear the 9 squares. I get the lighter frog to show up but as soon as I let go it is gone and nothing happens.

Wish I had looked at this help page before wasting all of my lives trying to figure out how to use the frog. Most introductions of new things are easy to figure out on one's own, but certainly not this. Live and learn.

Thanks for explaining the frog. I've been using up all my lives trying to figure it out. Now I have to wait for more lives so I can try it out properly!

If your using a mobile device, do you work the frog like the lolli pop? You can't click on it like a PC?

I'm finding that many times I have to match 5,6 or 7 times before frogtastic!! WHY? The instructions say that only 4 matches is needed. It also doesn't seem to grow if you match the frog with a stripe or wrap and that also doesn't seem to have extra power either.
Please clarify what good the frog is matched with color bomb, wrap or stripe

Oh my gosh, thanks so much for the info on the frog! If I hadn't read this first I wouldn't have had a clue what to do. Thanks to checking out this page first, I passed 606 first try w/ 3 stars! So far I'm loving the frog lol. Also, I normally don't watch the videos posted on the help pages b/c I don't find them all that helpful but I would highly recommend that people watch the video on this page before playing w/ the frog for the first time. Reading about it is somewhat helpful but seeing it used in action is what helped me more and I'm not even a visual person normally. Anyway, thanks again. I doubt all the new levels will be so easy so I'm going to enjoy my victory while I can lol.

What about when he turns chocolate? I think this happened when I matched him as part of a group of 5 that would normally make a color bomb. I tried to move him with another color but he just switched spaces and nothing happened.

i couldn't move it either. just click on him once and dont try to drag and drop him. that is what i was doing and he wouldn't move.

My frog is black and flashes random colors like a glitch so it's just a random crap shoot if it works. Anyone else have this issue?

I love how CC introduces this thing and gives NO instruction on the game screen on how to use it. I had no idea it clears 9 blocks when pulsating.

Tree Winkler said...

Great Blog Site !!!!... I am wondering about moving the frog on your Android mobile device???... is it possible and do you know how??

I click it, it gives the ghost frog. I click to get the 9 squares which blink like it is going to work...I let go and nothing happens...

I play on the Surface using the touch screen when I used the keyboard the frog worked! I hope that info helps someone else because I was SO frustrated!

Anonymous said...

Yep! It was a touch screen issue! Thank you!

I cannot get frog to work in the bottom on level 634 and it never ends or I never win. Have gone up to 3 stars a few times now. HELP!

Barb Whitlock said...

In my humble opinion I don't think the frog is that important. Work on getting your chocolate sprinkle and matching
stripe of those in the 'jelly box' Took me about 3-4 tries. I lucked out, all my jelly was orange, got a choc. ball and matching orange stripe, game over, with a fair amount of moves left.

Topaz Windswift said...

I just got a chocolate frog! Don't know how it happened but it cleared the board with three stars. Any clues?

Anonymous said...

Mine too! I can't even play the levels properly because I can't tell what color the keys or the frog are! :(

Leigh Ann said...

The frog doesn't eat stripes. I have a purple frog. I combined a chocolate bomb with a purple stripe and the frog didn't eat a single one.

I'm trying to find a post I made last evening, posted under anonymous... Not a good thing since I can't find the post now with so many other anonymous(s) out there 😶 Any ideas...

Please fix this level...it freezes constantly...is this on purpose because there may not be a level 1296 yet. I can go back and play prior levels rather just sit her and watch this level freeze over and over. DO SOMETHING to fix this please.
