Bazuka is a red Kremling grunt of the Kremling Krew. It is a part of the Kremling Kreeps category. This foe debuts in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and later appears in Donkey Kong Land III. Bazuka wields large rocket launchers with laser sighters. Bazuka's name is derived from bazooka, the cannon it carries and holds.

Appearances[edit]

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble![edit]

Bazuka opens fire.

Bazuka first appears in Blazing Bazukas, the fourth level of Mekanos as its prominent role in the game. Bazuka can shoot all kinds of barrels, including TNT Barrels or Steel Kegs, and bouncing on its projectiles is often mandatory to cross gaps or to reach Bonus Levels. In Blazing Bazukas, a Bazuka is needed to gain the level's DK Coin. Dixie and Kiddy must lure it into shooting a Steel Keg at a Koin. Bazuka cannot hurt the Kongs directly, but their barrel cannons protect them from Dixie and Kiddy's direct attacks. It's possible for the monkeys to defeat Bazuka by throwing a TNT Barrel at it. At times, they could change the barrels from wooden to metal or TNT, utilizing switches throughout Blazing Bazukas and Criss Kross Cliffs to clear the way of red Buzzes and other obstacles.

Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

In Donkey Kong Land III, Bazuka returns and serves the same role it did in Donkey Kong Country 3 -- firing projectiles endlessly. This time, Bazuka is found in six levels total, four more than in Donkey Kong Country 3, meaning that it appears in the game more often. The levels it appears in are Karbine Kaos, Bazuka Bombard, Kuchuka Karnage, Barrel Boulevard, Jungle Jeopardy and Tropical Tightropes.
