Klobbers are a Kremling species that disguise themselves as barrels. They first appear in Donkey Kong Country 2.

Klobbers have green scales, a lime green belly, and a black eye. They have a set of jaws, like with other Kremlings, but they do not use them. Klobbers also have small ears with a hoop earring pierced into each one. (Klobbers are among the few Kremlings to have ears. Another Kremling with ears are Klingers.) As shown in their official artwork render, Klobbers have a patch on their right cheek.

The barrels worn by Klobbers are missing their lids (however, the top lid lies on a Klobber's head in Donkey Kong 64). They stick their feet outside of the bottom of the barrel, They have three big toes, each with a claw. When Klobbers move around, they carry their barrel around, only poking out their head and feet.

Appearances in video games

Donkey Kong Country 2


Klobbers are common enemies in Donkey Kong Country 2. Klobbers will hide in their barrels and wait for Diddy or Dixie. When the duo approach, Klobbers will attempt to charge into the Kongs with intent of shoving them into other enemies, into an abyss or something equally as bad. The Kongs can knock a Klobber unconscious by bonking it on the head (either by jumping on it or throwing something at it). After a Klobber is knocked out the Kongs can use the barrel as a weapon. Sometimes Klobbers will run off the edge of an abyss, just by chasing a Kong.

A yellow version of Klobber also exists. These yellow Klobbers use the same strategy as the green variety (hiding in a barrel and charging recklessly when the Kongs approach). The major difference between the green and yellow Klobbers is that the yellow variety can make the Kongs drop their collected Banana Bunches.

Also, gray Klobbers with red eyes exist as well. These Klobbers are the most dangerous. As whenever they hit the Kongs, they cause them to drop a Balloon. The majority of gray Klobbers are found in the Lost World.

Red Klobbers (known as Kabooms) also make an appearance. However, they hide in TNT Barrels instead and explode whenever they make contact into any Kong.

Donkey Kong Land 2

Only the green variety of Klobbers variety appears in the semi-sequel Donkey Kong Land 2. They act the same with no major differences

Other games

Enemies similar to Klobbers, called Knockas appear in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III.

Green Klobbers and Kabooms also appear in Donkey Kong 64. Here they were uncommon enemies, found only in Angry Aztec, Gloomy Galleon, and certain areas in Crystal Caves. This time, Klobbers actually do hurt the Kongs when they run into them. They were also immune to almost all of the Kongs' attacks. However, a shockwave attack or tossing an Orange can take them out.

Klobbers also appear in Donkey Konga 2. Klobbers most recently appeared in DK: Jungle Climber, where they are uncommon enemies since two only appear in Spooky Woods, and can climb on Pegs and try to bounce into the Kongs.

  • Whenever a Klobber runs it makes a sound similar to tires screeching. In Donkey Kong 64 a Klobber, when chasing a Kong will sometimes "C'mon!" in a very Daffy Duck-esque voice.
