Appearances

Video games

Donkey Kong Country

Klump first appears in Donkey Kong Country leading Kremling grunts to rob the Banana Hoard in which Diddy was protecting. Seeing Diddy defeating two Kritters and defeated by Krusha, Klump orders to seal him in a DK Barrel, take all Banana Hoard in his industrial base[5] and give them to Gangplank Galleon later.

In the game, Klump wears an army helmet to protect its head. Because of this, it is immune to Diddy's jump attack. It is also defeated from these method: from Rambi's horn, a rolling attack (DK)/cartwheel (Diddy), or from a barrel tossed at it. Unlike Diddy, Klump is vulnerable to DK's jump attack, but in the game beta, he also ricochets off Klump's helmet. Klump appears in six levels: Jungle Hijinxs, Torchlight Trouble, Trick Track Trek, Elevator Antics, Blackout Basement and Platform Perils.

In Gangplank Galleon's fake ending credits, Klump is in charge of the game's KONCEPT.

In the Game Boy Advance version, the Kongs obtain a Klump photograph when DK hand slaps a Klump.

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 Kannon.

Klump 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, Klump have no his helmet can be defeated with a simple jump on the head.

Donkey Kong 64

Klump reappears in Donkey Kong 64 ordered by King K. Rool together with Kasplat and Chief Technician to imprison DK's friends and steal his bananas. Klump shows K. Rool that they already fulfilled his two requests.

To attack, Klump tosses unripe, explosive Oranges at a Kong. It also bounces them backward with its large belly, but the Kongs do not get injured. Klump is either defeated from the shockwave attack, an Orange, or a musical instrument move. Its bulk protects it from the Kongs' physical attacks. It often consumes Oranges in the background and burps afterward.

When defeated, Klump spins around, makes a military salute and collapses. It then relinquishes three Oranges.

Klump appears in every world except Frantic Factory and Creepy Castle.

Appearances in other media

Television series

Klump is known as General Klump (nicknamed "Klump" or "Klumpy") in the Donkey Kong Country animated series. He is King K. Rool's second-command and general. He is one of the show's main characters.

Despite being constantly berated and disrespected by K. Rool (even being fired a few times by him), Klump is still very faithful to him. He even admits in "Klump's Lumps" (an episode centered around him being fired) that serving K. Rool was his life. Klump is usually in charge of K. Rool's schemes.

Despite his tough military exterior, Klump has a sensitive personality. He befriends Dixie and helps find her pet lobster Thermidor in "Klump's Lumps".

According to the episode "Speak No Evil, Dude", Klump doesn't get ill because he eats at least a hundred garlic cloves per day.

Klump has an older brother Kaptain Skurvy, who reminded him most of his past in the Christmas-themed episode "The Kongo Bongo Festival of Lights":

As a young boy, Klump accidentally caused a huge fire that destroyed the swamp where he and his family lived at. Out of brotherly love, Kaptain Skurvy decided to take the blame for Klump, and was banished from his home. The episode's ending reveals that Klump once planned on joining Skurvy's crew, much to the dislike of K. Rool.

Klump was voiced by Adrian Truss.

Literature

Donkey Kong Country (chapter book)

In the novel adaption of Donkey Kong Country, written by Michael Teitelbaum, Klump is one of K. Rool's generals, along with Krusha, Kritter, and Rockkroc.

His role in the beginning of the story is identical in-game: He led the assault of stealing the Banana Hoard, like in the game. Diddy tries to prevent Klump from robbing the bananas, but is restrained by him and locked inside of a barrel.

Klump later appears on Gangplank Galleon, among numerous other Kremlings. When DK, Cranky and Diddy fight the Kremlings, Diddy cartwheels into a Klump, knocking it off the ship and in the ocean.
