"The supreme commander of the Kremlings and mastermind of the banana heist."
Donkey Kong Country Instruction Booklet (SNES version), page 28[1]
"The villainous scoundrel that has been the the mastermind behind this whole banana fiasco is not even on the island! He's out in the Water on his ship, acting like a pirate. King K. Rool is the biggest beast that any ape has ever seen. The Lumbering lard bucket just sits out there on his ship, barking orders at his minions. The main deck of his ship is where the final battle will take place. You have to be more than ready. K. Rool is much more agile than he looks and he's ready to rumble. You've already taken back more bananas than he had ever thought you world."

Donkey Kong 64[]

"While K. Rool may have ditched his ridiculous disguises, his intentions are as evil as ever. Fortunately, a combination of his own incompetence and useless minions have allowed us to defeat him in the past. But the future of Kong Isle rests in the ability of Donkey and his new buddies to prevent the croc’s latest effort. I could defeat him single-handedly of course, but then you wouldn’t have a game to play would you?"
