King K. Rool's Blast-O-Matic device, armed and ready, in the Game Over sequence of Donkey Kong 64
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong 64|
|Function||Completely destroying DK Isle|
The Blast-O-Matic is Donkey Kong 64's main antagonist, King K. Rool's "doomsday device", with the one and only purpose of completely obliterating DK Isle in one concentrated laser blast from the frontside of the dark and gloomy Crocodile Island.
It takes on the appearance of a gigantic, high-tech laser cannon mounted in the middle-front portion of the reptile-shaped Crocodile Island, the Kremling Krew's current base in the game. Since both Crocodile Island and DK Isle are perfectly parellel to each other, facing straight-on, it doesn't take much effort to set this deadly device off and bring utter destruction upon the Kongs. The one and only time the Blast-O-Matic can ever be seen in-game is after the player has saved their game and quit from their current point, where they'll then be presented with the "Game Over" video which opens with King K. Rool laughing in maniacal triumph at the Kongs utter defeat. We then cut to the exterior of Crocodile Island, menacingly staring DK Isle down, as the Blast-O-Matic emerges from it's hiding spot and warms up for the inevitable shot.
