A Kritter is the most common breed of Kremling encountered throughout the Donkey Kong Country series. They can be found in almost all games stemming from the Donkey Kong Country series.

 Game Appearances
Kritters first appeared in the very first Donkey Kong Country game alongside Gnawty and Zinger as the most common enemies of the game. Green Kritters would attack Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong by walking at them. While other colored Kritters would jump at them.
Kritters would make their second appearance in the pseudo-sequel of Donkey Kong Country in the same role as before. All Kritters were the same color due to the Gameboys limitations.
A single Kritter appears in Diddy Kong Racing under the name of Krunch. He is originally sent to Timber's Island to find out why Diddy Kong went there and to find out if Diddy and his friends are plotting a anti-Kremling campaign. He ends up aiding Diddy and his friends in defeating Wizpig.
They appear as semi-common enemies in Donkey Kong 64. Their appearance changed from the Donkey Kong Country games, they wear leather jackets with a skull-and-crossbones emblem on it and they attack the Kongs by punching or biting. There is other variations of the Kritter in the game such as, a robotic Kritter, a Kritter in a mushroom costume, and a Kritter wearing a bed-sheet to disguise itself as a ghost. They appear to have less bulk and skinnier in the game.
Kritters receive a new appearance in this game. They are able to swing from pegs and sometimes attack by throwing things at Donkey Kong.
Kritters originally had gold shoulder pads and knee pads, with a bluish green skin tone in Donkey Kong Country. As well there were other color variations. In Donkey Kong 64, they had a small change in appearance with a skull-and-crossbone leather jacket.
In later games such as Mario Super Sluggers, they are seen with more muscles, and a rounder snout and head. They also wear tattered pants and spiked wristbands.
