Kroctopus is a giant, green sea monster boss with many sharp pincers.
This foe appears exclusively in the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Because of this, Barbos (the boss in this location in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version) was relocated to Pacifica (a location exclusively found in the Game Boy Advance version.)
Upon entering, Kroctopus emerges from the water, allowing the battle to start. Kroctopus jabs its tentacle towards the platforms one at a time, depending on where Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong are. They must avoid his sharp pincers until a purple bomb drops down. As Kroctopus still tries to pinch Dixie and Kiddy, the two have to go on the exact location the bomb is on so Kroctopus pinches the bomb instead. Additionally, the heroes have to avoid the bomb's explosion to avoid injury. This cycle must be repeated throughout the entire battle.
After four hits, Kroctopus goes underwater and then turns a slight red-orange color and becomes more angry. Being hit seven times makes Kroctopus go underwater again and emerge again, but this time in a darker red color with red eyes. His attack style then changes so that he uses two tentacle jabs at once, raising up the difficulty. Kroctopus must pinch a purple bomb three more times (making ten in total) to defeat Kroctopus.
