Enemies Kongs

The Kremlings are a race of crocodiles in the Donkey Kong series. They are often the main enemies in the series. The vast majority of them are members of the Kremling Krew lead by King K. Rool, with the exception being K. Lumsy.

Biology[edit]

Kremlings are anthropomorphic crocodiles who have subspecies that differ in appearance and color. Most share identical distinct traits such as sharp teeth, scaly skin, and bulging eyes. Most Kremlings are bipedal in appearance and slightly human-like, but there are some quadrupedal and animal-like Kremlings. They also appear to be capable of breathing underwater, and they are immune to toxic waste, as shown in Donkey Kong Country 2's Toxic Tower.

Almost all of the Kremlings are or resemble a male. The only two known female Kremlings in the Donkey Kong series are Kass and Kalypso.

Society and Culture[edit]

The Kremlings do not have an established government, as they are dictated by King K. Rool. The Kremlings appear to believe any overpowered figure, e.g. they believed that King K. Rool had died in Donkey Kong Country 3 and became subjects to a mechanical robot named KAOS (who was actually K. Rool's invention). The Kremlings are implied by Klubba in Donkey Kong Country 2 to be miserably led by K. Rool—"Kap'n K. Rool treats us rotten. I hope yer scupper his plans!" Their hierarchy rule is essentially a cruel dictatorship in which the strongest is in command, and the subjects are forced to obey the ruler.

Kremlings, unlike the Kongs, are more technologically advanced, having created numerous machines like airships, submarines, sentient robots, laser weaponry and, in Donkey Kong Country 3, a hovercraft-like vehicle. The Kremlings also have no regard for nature, as they have carelessly polluted a majority of Crocodile Isle with garbage and toxic waste; they also have constructed factories at Kremkroc Industries Inc., causing the area to become a nuclear wasteland.

As of date, no Kremling cities, towns or villages have appeared in any Donkey Kong game; the most relevant area is the poorly constructed Klubba's Kiosk, but it is unknown if Klubba resides there.
