Krash is a Kritter who rides uncontrollably in a Mine Cart. It first appeared in Donkey Kong Country.

History[edit]

Donkey Kong Country[edit]

In Donkey Kong Country, Krashes ride a mine cart in the opposite direction of DK and Diddy. They would try to ram into the Kongs, who can only avoid them by jumping over them. Krash appeared in both mine cart levels: Mine Cart Carnage and Mine Cart Madness, where they were either stationery or posed as kamikaze-like enemies. If the former, the lead Kong could jump on one and hijack its mine cart. The stationery ones only appear in "Mine Cart Madness".

In the Game Boy Advance version, their skin color were recolored purple.

Donkey Kong Country 2/Donkey Kong Land 2[edit]

Main article: Klank

In Donkey Kong Country 2, an enemy similar to Krash, called Klank, appears. It is supposed to be Kutlass driving a Skull Cart, the game's successor to a Mine Cart.

Donkey Kong Country 3/Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

Even though Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III have several cart-riding levels, no Krash equivalent appeared in both games.

Donkey Kong 64[edit]

Krashes reappear in Donkey Kong 64's mine cart coin challenges. They are on track adjacent to the one the active Kong is on. They resemble Klubba in this game, as they are more muscular, yield a club, which they try to smack the active Kong with, and have a small head in proportion to their large bodies. If Krash smacks the Kong with its club, he or she loses some of the collected coins. Krashes are defeated if they either collide into something, such as a pile of rocks, or if they collapse into an abyss.

Donkey Kong Country television series[edit]

Although Krashes do not appear in the Donkey Kong Country animated series, some of the show's episodes featured Kritters riding in mine carts, effectively resembling a Krash.
