Kackles are undead, hovering skeletal Kremlings who only appear in Donkey Kong Country 2's level Haunted Hall, of Gloomy Gulch. Kackles are absent from Donkey Kong Land 2 because the game has a new, generic rollercoaster-themed level, Krazy Koaster, which replaced Haunted Hall from Donkey Kong Country 2.


Kackles wear either a blue, green, yellow, or red bandanna, a patch on an eye, and have scimitars, which they never use. When Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong enter a gate in Haunted Hall, a Kackle pursues them. The color of the bandana Kackle wears indicates how difficult the chase will be, with a blue bandana Kackle being the basic "tutorial" Kackle and the red bandana Kackle being the most difficult. A timer will appear at the top-center of the screen when a Kackle gives chase. When the timer reaches zero, it becomes visible and attacks the lead monkey. If there is another Kong on standby, that Kong will take over and the timer will be reset. The timer and Kackle only stop if Diddy and Dixie exit a gate. Hitting a Plus Barrel or a Minus Barrel affect how long Kackles remain intangible. There are a total of four areas in the level, each one starting and ending with a gate. There are two gates before the Star Barrel and two after it.

In the Game Boy Advance remake, all of the Kackles have a blue bandana.
