Kasplat is one of higher-ranking Kremlings who served as third-of-command of the Kremling Krew during the events of Donkey Kong 64.[1]

Physical Appearance

Kasplat is blue muscular Kremling with red eyes, a yellow nose, a yellow belly, and slicked-back hair that can be one of six colors. His outlift is sunglasses, black gloves, a black vest with pockets, and black boots with brown shoelaces.

Role in the Game

The Kasplats carry the Blueprint pieces for the Blast-O-Matic machine, broken apart from the original design that Snide created. King K. Rool entrusted the forty pieces to these elite Kremlings to keep them out of the wrong hands.

Five Kasplats appear in eight of the nine areas of the game, one for each Kong. Their hair and shockwaves are color-coded according to the Kong that can collect the Blueprint that they carry: yellow for Donkey Kong, red for Diddy Kong, blue for Lanky Kong, purple for Tiny Kong, and green for Chunky Kong. If the Kongs have already taken a Kasplat's blueprint, its hair will turn white, but its shockwave attack will stay the same color.

Kasplats are among K. Rool's strongest Kremlings in terms of stamina, able to be knocked down several times before defeat. Offensively, their techniques deal the standard quarter melon of damage, but the hand-to-hand combat that they demonstrate is nigh impossible to counter at point-blank distance, and their shockwave attacks have large ranges.

Appearances

He is called by King K. Rool where he meets with Klump and chief technician to steal Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard, which consists of two hundred Golden Bananas, and imprison the other Kongs, so as to buy time and distract Donkey Kong while the Kremling Krew repairs the damaged Blast-O-Matic.

Before entering the Creepy Castle, a Kasplat tried to flee Hideout Helm, fearing K. Rool's wrath should he find out the Kongs were acquiring the blueprints to the Blast-O-Matic and referred him as "fatso." However, he found his escape blocked by a massive, red Klaptrap sent by the king to execute him.
