A Kaboing is a reptilian enemy, a member of the Kremling Krew. It looks exactly like a Klomp, but instead of possessing one peg-leg like the latter, a Kaboing have two spring-loaded peg legs. A Kaboing is first encountered in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest as common enemies. Due to having two peg-legs, a Kaboing 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, turquoise version of Kaboings are encountered. These turquoise Kaboings can jump slightly higher and move slightly faster. In Web Woods, turquoise 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.

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



  • According to the game's credits, a Kaboing belongs to the "Kremling Kuthroats" enemy class.
