Krusha, as seen in Donkey Kong 64.
|Leader||King K. Rool|
Krushas are blue-scaled, high-ranked Kremlings of the Kremling Krew. They are known for their strength, and their immunity to certain attacks. They made their first appearance in Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo.
Donkey Kong Country would host Krushas first appearance in the Donkey Kong series. They are first seen in the level Millstone Mayhem at the beginning of the level. When they walk, they will make loud stomping noises that show their strength. Diddy Kong is not able to damage a Krusha alone at all; his cartwheels and jumps will be laughed off. If hit by Donkey Kong, they will be defeated without the help of a barrel. Donkey Kong cannot harm a Krusha with a hand slap, even though he will receive a Banana.
In the levels Monkey Mines, Necky Nightmare(GBC version only), and Platform Perils, a gray-colored Krusha will appear. He is invincible to all of Donkey Kongs attacks and can only be defeated by a barrel.
In Donkey Kong Land, Krushas would return in the same form as they did in Donkey Kong Country. Except the gray Krushas would not return.

Krumple would be this games generation of a Krusha for Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble and Donkey Kong Land III. They are less threatening than a Krusha due to their chubbier state.
On the animated TV show Donkey Kong Country, Krusha would be one of the main characters. He is considered to be King K. Rool's bodyguard and high-ranking member of the Kremling Krew. He is fairly dimwitted and usually has a hard time understanding simple tasks and gets easily distracted. He likes to watch the "The Sing Along with Uncle Swampy Show" show that is meant for children.
Krusha is best friends with General Klump and is used as the muscle for Klump's schemes. Krusha's attempts often ends up in disaster and causes more harm than good.
In the episode Speed, he is run over by a minecart and ends up becoming highly intelligent. He ends up devising a plot to kill the Kongs and claim the Crystal Coconut for himself and even forces King K. Rool into submission. Despite K. Rool giving in, Krusha finds him useless and only intends to save him upon Klump's request. However by the end of the episode, Krusha is run over again and ends up becoming dimwitted once more.
During the first season, he is voiced by Ron Rubin. During the second season, he is voiced by Frank Welker.
