Knockas are green, lanky Kremlings who hide in green barrels with a face painted on them.

History[edit]

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

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Knockas make their debut. In this game, they are fairly common enemies, encountered in a large amount of levels. Knockas have an attack pattern similar to an earlier enemy named Klobber; a Knocka will wait hidden in its barrel, if Dixie and/or Kiddy pass by, a Klobber will spring forth out of its barrel and begin trying to ram the Kongs. Since a Klobber cannot directly hurt a Kong they will try and ram them into either another enemy or an abyss.

A Knocka can be defeated by simply jumping on it as this will knock it back into it's barrel. Once back in it's barrel a Knocka can simply be picked up and thrown away. In later levels of Donkey Kong Country 3, two barrel wearing sub-species of Knockas, Klasps and Kuchukas are encountered. Also in the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 3 an explosive version of Knockas, TNT Knockas are present in the code for the game, but are not encountered in the game.

Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

In Donkey Kong Land III Knockas, along with Klasps and Kuchukas, are still semi-common enemies. The game erroneously lists Knockas as Krushas, however, yet aside from the name, there is no real difference between the Knockas of Donkey Kong Country 3 and Donkey Kong Land III.
