History

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

Klobber first appear in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest as common enemy. Klobbers will hide in his barrel and wait for Diddy or Dixie Kong to approach, then spring out of his said barrel and continuously run at either Kong to bop him around with the barrel itself. The basic green Klobber will not injure a Kong unless it pushes them into another baddie, though his usual goal seems to be to knock Kongs off of cliffs. The Kongs can knock the Klobber unconscious by bonking it on the head (either by jumping on it or throwing something at it). After the Klobber is knocked out the Kongs can use the barrel as a weapon. Sometimes Klobber will run off the edge of an abyss, just by chasing a Kong.

Donkey Kong Land 2

The green Klobber reappears unchanged in Donkey Kong Land 2.

Donkey Kong 64

Klobber appear in Donkey Kong 64. Here he is uncommon enemy, found only in Angry Aztec, Gloomy Galleon, and certain areas in Crystal Caves. This time, Klobber actually do hurt the Kongs when he run into them. He were also immune to almost all of the Kongs' attacks. However, a shockwave attack, an instrument, or an Orange Grenade can take them out.

As Kaboom, Klobber attack method remains unchanged; when one of the Kongs comes near enough, he charge and attempt to damage them with an explosion. Any attack will cause the Klobber to explode, though the Kongs will take damage if they're not far enough away; the Klobber will also self-destruct after a few seconds of charging and failing to attack the Kongs. Klobber also appear in Diddy Kong's Mine Cart challenge in Jungle Japes, where he will jump off of edges and explode, trying to take Diddy out with him.

Donkey Konga 2/DK: Jungle Climber

Klobber also appear in Donkey Konga 2. Klobber most recently appeared in DK: Jungle Climber, where he are uncommon enemies appearing in Spooky Woods, and can climb on pegs and try to bounce into the Kongs.

  • According to the game's credits, Klobbers belong to the "Kremling Kuthroats" enemy class.
  • Whenever a Klobber runs it makes a sound similar to tires screeching. In Donkey Kong 64 a Klobber, when chasing a Kong will sometimes say "C'mon!" in a very Donald Duck-esque voice.
  • Klobber is one of few generic Kremlings to have ears (Klinger is the other).
  • Klobbers mark their first level appearance in Pirate Panic in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2.
