Klumps are crocodilian-like enemies that are breeds of Kremlings which are supposedly stronger than Kritters and slightly weaker than Krushas. This enemy made it's first appearance in Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. These enemies are first encountered almost halfway through Jungle Hijinks, the very first stage of Donkey Kong Country.


[edit] Donkey Kong Country

In this game, Klumps act as a type of forceful ground troop led by King K. Rool throughout various stages and are noticeably harder to take out than Kritters. Rather than this, the smaller and weaker Diddy Kong only bounces off of a Klump's head after attempting to jump on it, stirring no effect. This can be remedied by a simple Cartwheel though.

[edit] Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Klumps return in an entirely different form pertaining to the pirate theme known as Kannon. They are basically Klumps with pirate hats and large cannons being held under one arm. This enemy is only method of attack is close-range firing.

[edit] Donkey Kong 64

In Donkey Kong 64, Klumps return with a brand new look, attack, and position in the game. Rather than short, bulky, and sporting a sewer green pattern, Klumps appear to be very tall and rotund, with pink, scaly skin and a large, orange stomach. Their method of attack is chucking Orange Grenades at an opposing Kong in any given opportunity.

[edit] Donkey Kong Barrel Blast

In Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, Klump showed up as a playable character in this unique racing installment made for the Wii and was given a complete appearance overhaul once again. In Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, Klump's overall gruff and and menacing appearance has been smoothed out to make him appear as something of an ally to the Kongs, whereas a brown bucket has apparently replaced the army helmet in which he had always worn upon his head in previous years.
