Purple Klaptraps are a large, purple variation of Klap Trap.

Purple Klaptraps appear in several areas of Donkey Kong 64, starting with Angry Aztec. Many attacks are ineffective toward them, including the shockwave attack. Purple Klaptraps can be defeated by an Orange or by a Kong's musical instrument move. If one is destroyed, it relinquishes three oranges, but unlike normal Klaptraps, Purple Klaptraps' dentures never jump around temporarily after being defeated.

In the Donkey Kong Country animated series a character called Junior the Giant Klaptrap would occasionally appear. Despite his name, Junior is smaller than a Purple Klaptrap. Instead, he is about the size of Diddy Kong, whereas most Purple Klaptraps are about the size of Donkey Kong.

Purple Klaptraps bear a resemblance to Krimps.
