Team Cranky is an unlockable team in the 2003 Diddy Kong Pilot. It is one of the three teams; the other two are its rivals: Team Kong and Team Kremling. Cranky Kong is the only member of the team. He oddly has four rosters of himself on the "Character Select" screen.
Team Cranky is unlocked after Team Kremling wins at each Kong-themed dogfight and cup. Their unique title screen is then replaced by an ocean-themed one, with a wooden, cobwebbed "Cranky Kong Pilot" logo. The honeycomb-themed background from the selection and "Options" menus is also changed to a black one depicting spider webs and diagonal red girders from the Donkey Kong arcade game.
