Kannons are large mortar-wielding members of the Kremling Krew; they only appear in Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2. Kannons are simply Klumps trained to use artillery weapons, and have a nasty habit of staying just off screen to take pot shots at Dixie and Diddy.

Appearance[edit]

While normal Klumps wear army gear (green helmet, grenade belt, etc.) Kannons wear more of a pirate ensemble such as earrings, a large belt and large black hat with a skull and cross-bones on it, to fit the pirate theme of Donkey Kong Country 2. Kannons attack by firing barrels or kannonballs at the Kongs in the direction they're facing, which can be either forward or downward. Kannons can be found in several levels, but mostly underground areas. They also have a level named after them, Kannon's Klaim. Despite being large and burly, Kannons can be defeated with a simple jump on the head.
