Donkey Kong Country SNES manual, page 28

Krusha (also known as Kruncha[1]) is King K. Rool's primary bodyguard, Klump's friend and dumb member of Kremling Krew.


Krusha is a blue muscular Kremling with light tone belly and yellow four horns.

His main outlift is a camouflaged military suit, black belt and silver bands.

As Kruncha, Krusha wear red bandana with white polka dots, earrings, yellow clothes, golden arm bands and anchor tattoo in shoulder.


Donkey Kong Country

Krushas first appear in the original Donkey Kong Country where he helped in stealing from Banana Hoard in Klump's supervision.

For his muscular body, Krusha in invencible by Cartwheels/Kong Rolls and Diddy Kong's attacks. But can be defeated by Donkey Kong and by any object.

Donkey Kong Land

Krusha are one of the three Kremlings that reappear in the Game Boy title Donkey Kong Land, the other two being Kritters and Klap Traps. Only the Krusha reappear, which were recolored to monochrome due to the Game Boy's four-color palette.

Donkey Kong Country 2 / Donkey Kong Land 2

Klump reappears again in Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2 as his new pirate alias Kruncha.

Krusha physically can't be injured by Diddy and Dixie does not injure him, but becomes angry and dangerous when is hit for young Kongs. He can be defeated by anything, Rambi's attacks, Rattle's jump and Invincibility Barrel power.

Donkey Kong 64

A Blue Krusha is an unlockable playable character in the multiplayer mode of Donkey Kong 64. Krusha is similar to Chunky, except it has a fast sliding attack and has an Orange Grenade Launcher for a weapon instead of a Pineapple Launcher.

Krushas do not appear in the Adventure mode but a similar enemy, Kasplats, seem to take their place. Additionally, Kasplat is incorrectly named "Krusha" in the "Enemies" section of the Donkey Kong 64 Prima guide.

Television series

Krusha DKC TV Series.png

Krusha is one of the main characters and antagonists in the Donkey Kong Country animated series. In the show Krusha is King K. Rool's bodyguard and a high-ranking member of the Kremling Krew. Despite these high positions and responsibilities, Krusha is fairly dimwitted, has difficulties of grasping simple concepts and is easily distracted. Krusha also likes to watch "The Sing Along with Uncle Swampy Show", a show targeted toward young children.

Krusha is also friends with K. Rool's second-in-command, General Klump and is often times the muscle in Klump's schemes. Despite being well-meaning, Krusha's attempts to aid the Kremling Krew often end up in disaster, causing more damage than good.

In the episode "Speed", Krusha was run over by a Mine Cart, and became extremely intelligent. He then devised a diabolical plot to kill the Kongs and then claim the Crystal Coconut for himself, managing to even force K. Rool into submission. Krusha even considered K. Rool not ruthless enough in his schemes. Even though K. Rool allowed Krusha to lead, he considered K. Rool disposable, and only saved him upon Klump's request. By the end of the episode, Krusha is run over by a Mine Cart again, and becomes a dimwitted henchmen again.

In the show, Krusha was voiced by Len Carlson.
