Kritters are the most recurring Kremling species in the Kremling Krew, led by King K. Rool.

Main series appearances[edit]

Donkey Kong Country[edit]

Kritter's first appearance

Kritters debut in the original Donkey Kong Country; they are very common enemies with a large color variety. Green Kritters (recolored purple in the Game Boy Advance remake) walk like a Goomba. They are defeated if cartwheeled into, jumped onto, or if a barrel is thrown at it. Kritter has a blue counterpart (turquoise in the Game Boy Color release), who constantly jumps around, and it has a brown counterpart, who bounces while situated.

Donkey Kong Land[edit]

Kritters are one of the three Kremlings who reappear in Donkey Kong Land. Its color varieties do not return because of the Game Boy's four-color palette. It has more level appearances than in Donkey Kong Country.

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

Main articles: Klomp, Kaboing.

Kritters return under the alias of "Klomp" in both Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. Klomps are Kritters in a generic pirate getup, per the game's pirate theme, complete with a peg leg and tattered sailor pants. They appear slightly less often than in Donkey Kong Country. Klomp has a subspecies called "Kaboing", who has two peg legs. It acts as a replacement for the blue Kritter variation.

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

Main article: Kobble

Kritters are superseded by a similar enemy, Kobble, in Donkey Kong Country 3 and Donkey Kong Land III. Kobble's appearance differs greatly from that of Kritter's. It also appears less often in the game. Kobbles/Kritters are enemies in every Funky's Rentals challenge, all of which are exclusive to the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 3. They ride in a motor boat to either race against Dixie and Kiddy or to shoot turrets at them.

Diddy Kong Racing[edit]

Main article: Krunch the Kremling

Krunch is the lone Kritter of Diddy Kong Racing. He was dispatched to Timber's Island by King K. Rool, who wanted to investigate why Diddy is at the Island, and was suspecting a scheme against the Kremling Krew. Krunch eventually helps Diddy and his friends with their goal to banish Wizpig from Timber's Island.

Donkey Kong 64[edit]

Kritter in Donkey Kong 64.

Kritters return in Donkey Kong 64 as the game's most common enemies. They can punch and bite in this game. They wear leather jackets with a skull-and-crossbones insignia, along with skull-and-crossbones belts. They also have a red color variety who only appears in Lanky's R&D challenge in Frantic Factory, and it occasionally pops out of barrels in "Kremling Kosh". Kritters appear in many of the game's cutscenes, where they are portrayed as klutzy. Kritters appear in every stage, except for Fungi Forest and Creepy Castle. Kritters also patrol on Crocodile Rock.

Kritter also has a new sub-species: Kreepa, a Kritter wearing a bedsheet, attempting to resemble a ghost.

DK: King of Swing[edit]

Kritter was renamed to Kremling in DK: King of Swing. Kritters now wear beige pants with a skull belt. Kritters are capable of climbing on pegs, where they toss rocks and bombs at DK or Diddy. Kritter is defeated if the player charges into it. A Kritter is unlocked as a playable character in Jungle Jam mode if six golden DK Coins are collected in "Adventure Mode".

Donkey Kong Barrel Blast[edit]

Kritter is a playable racer in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast; they return with their DK: King of Swing design. Its stats are similar to that of Donkey Kong's.

DK: Jungle Climber[edit]

Kritters also appear in DK: Jungle Climber. They are practically unchanged from DK: King of Swing.

Appearances in other games[edit]

Mario-series spinoffs[edit]

Kritters have recently begun to appear in the Mario sport spin-offs. In Mario Power Tennis they are the audience of DK Jungle Court. Kritters are one of the goalies in Super Mario Strikers, and it has a subspecies named Robo-Kritter, who is the goalie of the Super Team. Kritters reprise as goalies in the game's sequel, Mario Strikers Charged. In this game, players can play as them to block Mega Strikes. Kritter and King K. Rool reappear as playable characters in Mario Super Sluggers. Kritter has four color varieties in this game: green, blue, red, and brown.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

There are two trophies of Kritter in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Their trophy descriptions are:

Kritter - SSBB Trophy.png
Kritter
A member of the Kremlings. Led by King K. Rool, Kritters are the grunts of the army. They appear frequently in Donkey Kong Country in green, purple, blue, and other color variations--the blue ones will jump after Donkey Kong. Kritters also appear in Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast, pounding those barrels in pursuit of Donkey Kong.
Goalie Kritter - SSBB Trophy.png
Kritter (Goalie)
An underling of King K. Rool and the one and only goalie of Super Mario Strikers. In other words, it doesn't matter what team you play as--your goalie is going to be Kritter. Despite being at the very bottom of the Kremling ranks, he's responsible for what many might consider to be the toughest AND most important field position.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U[edit]

Kritter cameos as a trophy in both versions of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

Kritters return as enemies in Smash Run, a City Trial-esque mode exclusive to the game's Nintendo 3DS version. Three Kritter varieties appear in this mode, each sporting the latest Kremling design.

3DS Trophy Description (NTSC-U): Kritters are King K. Rool's minions from the Donkey Kong series, and they come in both green and blue varieties. Green ones will try to bite you repeatedly, and their last bite hurts the most! Blue ones will swipe at you with their sharp claws. Neither really knocks you back, so it's easy to get hit several times by them.

3DS Trophy Description (PAL): These enemies are part of King K. Rool's Kremling gang in the Donkey Kong series. The green ones attack with their strong jaws, while the blue use their sharp claws in spinning attacks for powerful slashing. They don't have a lot of launching power, but their relentless assaults can easily wear you down.

Wii U Trophy Description: These enemies are part of King K. Rool's Kremling gang in the Donkey Kong series. Depending on their color, they move and attack in different ways. Sadly for them, Donkey Kong has a tendency to take them out before they even know what's going on. On a separate note, you can actually play as a Kritter in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast!

Appears In (Wii U version only):

  • SNES Donkey Kong Country (11/1994)
  • N64 Donkey Kong 64 (11/1999)

Appearances in other media[edit]

"Donkey Kong Country" (comic)[edit]

In the comic

A blue Kritter attacked Diddy and Donkey Kong in a cave in the Club Nintendo comic "Donkey Kong Country". Upon patrolling a cave, Kritter finds DK, Diddy, and Squawks and panics. He gets scared by Donkey's huge shadow, projected onto the wall by Squawks's torch. Donkey defeats him by tossing a barrel at him. Like every character in the comic, the Kritter had the ability to speak.

Donkey Kong Country animated series[edit]

Kritters occasionally appear in the Donkey Kong Country animated series, and were voiced by Lawrence Bayne. Their tails are shorter and their eyes are spread more apart in the T.V. adaption. The show had a unique Kritter called Green Kroc, who was a minion of Kaptain Skurvy.
