Kobbles are basic, green Kremling soldier grunts of the Kremling Krew that appear in Donkey Kong Country 3 and Donkey Kong Land III.

Based on their posture and role, Kobbles are the successor both the Kritters and Klomps of the respective two previous titles. Skiddas are also the purple-colored counterpart to Kobbles, and appear in snowy regions.

History[edit]

Donkey Kong Country 3[edit]

Kobbles first appear in Donkey Kong Country 3. Kobbles acted much like Kritters and Klomps; they can easily be defeated by the rolling attack or when Dixie and Kiddy jumps on them, despite their muscular body. Kobbles only walk in a line horizontally, and they can only hurt the lead Kong if they come in contact with each other.

Kobbles are a rare enemy because they appear in three boardwalk levels: Lakeside Limbo, Tidal Trouble (only in the SNES version), Kreeping Klasps. Even Krimps outnumber them in each level.

According to Dixie Kong's Photo Album, Kobbles are classified under the Kremling Kreeps class. In addition, the album's photograph shows a Kobble in a mill level despite that Kobbles do not appear in any.

Kobbles have a higher-pitched noise in the Game Boy Advance remake, which is identical to the Kritters' noise in Donkey Kong Country's GBA remake.

Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

Kobbles have an unchanged, identical role in Donkey Kong Land III but are a lot more often. They appear in 18 levels:
