Mr. X as he would have appeared in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (beta)|
|Allies||Kaptain K. Rool, Kremling Kutthroats|
Mr. X is a boss character who only exists in the beta version of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, never making it into the final version of the game. His only other visual appearance was in issue # 76 of the Nintendo Power magazine. He also somehow made it into the German version of Donkey Kong Country 2's instruction manual. Given the simplicity of it, Mr. X was more than likely a working name while Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest was in production.
As the picture displays, he was meant to be a pirate Kremling with hooks for both of his hands and a rather ghostly look about him overall thanks to the dull grey skin and the piercing red eyes. He is supposedly an enhanced version of the standard Kremling pirate enemy featured in this installment.
In June 2015 Steve Mayles revealed on Reddit that Mr. X was replaced by Kackle during development.
