Types of KremlingsEdit

Kremling KuthroatsEdit

  • Kritter - the most typical Kremlings. They are tall green crocs with black pirate vests that simply run to bite or attack enemies.
  • Klump - fat, pink crocs with yellow shirts and green army helmets. They throw their body weight or throw Orange Grenades at enemies.
  • Kasplat- blue crocodiles that wear black jackets, sunglasses, and have various-colored hair. They are durable fighters who can make shockwaves.
  • Klaptrap - dog-like crocodiles who come in various colors: green ones can send their tongues and jaws to attack, blue ones are durable against average attacks, and red ones can grow in size.
  • Klobber - Kremlings who hide inside barrels. They charge at enemies to bump them around with their barrels. Green Klobbers attack normally, yellow ones rob their prey, and black ones can drain their life force.
    • Kabooms - red Klobbers who hide inside TNT barrels. They commit suicide by running at their enemies and exploding.
  • Kutlass - yellow and green crocs who wear pirate hats and wield dual swords.
  • Krook - crocs with hook hands, which they can throw like boomerangs.
  • Krusha - muscular Kremlings with excellent strength. Blue ones are the weaker variety while black ones are strongest.
  • Kruncha - light-blue or pink Kremlings that are slightly weaker than Krushas. When attacked, they turn red and get a strength-increase.
  • Kannon - large, purplish-pink crocs who blast handheld cannons at enemies.
    • Bazuka - small Kremlings that wield bazookas and work in the same manner as Kannons.
  • Kuff 'n' Klout - a pair of large, beefy Kremlings with terrific strength.
  • Kop - security Kremlings dressed in white cop uniforms. They guard bases and use guns and Tasers to stop enemies.

Submerged SeadogsEdit

  • Bitesize - small fish that attack in groups to bite their enemies.
  • Puftup - puffer-fish that can inflate and explode, sending out spikes.
  • Lockjaw - red piranhas that like to clack their teeth before lunging at prey.
    • Snapjaw - pink variants that attack faster and stronger.
  • Koco - clownfish that attack enemies with martial arts.
  • Lurchin - sea urchins that attempt to block their enemies.


Hideout HelmEdit

Hideout Helm is the main headquarters of the Krew, a floating mechanical island ship that is designed like Kroctus. A spell is in place to make the ship appear smaller on the outside than it actually is inside.

Gangplank GalleonEdit

The Gangplank Galleon is the main pirate ship sailed by the Krew, the head of their fleet of ships.

Kastle KaosEdit

Kastle Kaos is Baron K. Rool's base of operations. It is set on a coast in South America.

Stories They AppearedEdit


  • In the actual Donkey Kong series, it is debatable whether or not the three K. Rools are the same person or brothers (as noted by Smash Bros. Brawl).
  • The Kremlings often use the letter "K" rather than "C" in words where "C" is meant to be used.
