Kaboings are brown and orange colored reptilian enemies, members of the Kremling Krew. They look exactly like Klomps, but instead of possessing one peg-leg like the latter, Kaboings have two spring-loaded peg legs. Kaboings are first encountered in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest as common enemies. Due to having two peg-legs, Kaboings are incapable of walking normally and instead bounce and attempt to land on Diddy Kong or Dixie Kong. A simple bonk on the head is enough to defeat a Kaboing.

In some later levels of the game, light green version of Kaboings are encountered. These green Kaboings can jump slightly higher and move slightly faster. In Web Woods, green Kaboings wait on higher platforms to jump down and ambush Squitter. Kaboings can be quite predictable, since each and every one will always jump and fall at the same rate and height.

Kaboings also appear in Donkey Kong Country 2's pseudo-sequel Donkey Kong Land 2.



  • According to the game's credits, Kaboings belong to the "Kremling Kuthroats" enemy class.
