Kocos are green or red clownfish that are common in underwater levels of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land 3. Koco act much like a Bitesize from the original Donkey Kong Country, except there are two different species of Koco, with slightly different colors and swimming patterns. They also somewhat resemble a "Cheep-Cheep", from the Mario series.
Kocos appear only in Donkey Kong Country/Land 3's water-based levels, whether it be on a riverbank or in the deep underwater areas of the Northern Kremisphere. Red Kocos, the common ones, will slowly swim left or right, not seeking out Dixie Kong or Kiddy Kong, while the green ones do not move at all. Also like Bitesize, Enguarde the Swordfish will make quick work of them with a bill thrusting attack. A blue Nibbla is the predator of these fish, and they keep the Nibbla happy. If the Nibbla does no consistently feed on the Koco, it will hunt the Kongs.
Koco's other notable appearances was on the cover box art of Donkey Kong Land III. Also, in DKL III, Kocos only appear in the red variety.
