Bazukas are red Kremlings encountered in the games Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III.


They wield large barrel cannons with laser sighters, and bear a passing resemblance to Kopters. They are the game's equivalent of Kannons, shooting barrels in a pattern, or crazily in one direction. They can shoot all kinds of barrels, including TNT Barrels or Steel Kegs, and bouncing on their projectiles is often mandatory to cross gaps or to reach Bonus Areas. In several stages, a Bazuka is needed to reach that stage's DK Coin: Dixie and Kiddy must lure him into shooting a Steel Keg at a Koin. Bazukas can't hurt the Kongs directly, but their barrel cannons protect them from Dixie and Kiddy's direct attacks. However, it's possible to defeat a Bazuka just by throwing a TNT Barrel at one.


Donkey Kong Country 3[]

Bazukas first appear in Blazing Bazukas, the fourth stage of Mekanos, which sees the Kongs making their way through a large factory infested with those barrel-shooting Kremlings. In a stage of Krematoa, called Criss Kross Cliffs, Bazukas were necessary, as one at the bottom of the stage would fire Steel Kegs continuously up. Kiddy and Dixie Kong had to leap onto them as the barrels pushed them upward. At times, they could change the barrels from wooden to metal or TNT, utilizing switches throughout the stage, to clear the way of Red Buzzes and other obstacles.

Donkey Kong Land III[]

In Donkey Kong Land III, Bazukas are seen in all four factory stages: Karbine Kaos, Bazuka Bombard, Kuchuka Karnage and Barrel Boulevard. Strangely, there are not many Bazukas in "Bazuka Bombard". They are also in two of the jungle stages: Jungle Jeopardy and Tropical Tightropes. Also, in Donkey Kong Land III, it is impossible to defeat a Bazuka because TNT Barrels are nowhere to be found next to Bazuka.



  • According to the game's credits, Bazukas belong to the "Kremling Kreeps" enemy class.
  • There name is a pun on the word bazooka, which is what their cannon resembles.
