Kremlantis is the second world in the game Donkey Kong Land. The location is mainly sunken underwater. The surface does not offer much, but the underwater levels are impressive. The submerged portion of Kremlantis is an architectural wonder. There are many eye-catchers, including large fields of seaweed, various temples and a statue of Giant Clam, the boss of this world.

This complex was constructed and ruled by the King K. Rool's masterfull predecessors near Vine Valley when pirate Snaps invaded the Crocodile Isle in ancient times.[1] When was flooded and part of K. Rool's ancestors returned to their home island, the complex was submerged where it became a natural habitat for aquatic creatures, mainly the Clambos.



"This gigantic complex of ancient ruined temples is almost completely submerged. That means that there are planty of Chomps and other biting fish swimming about, waiting to take a piece out of the Kongs."

"The ruins of legendary Kremlantis are rising from the sea! This partially submerged complex of ancient temples is teeming with hungry fish and Kremlings. Explore all of the regions and recover lost treasures!"

"Rock hewn and rock solid is Kremlantis, ancient home of K. Rool's masterfull predecessors. Slight worse off for water than the good ship Gangplank, seeking as the entire kingdom is submerged! The majority of Kremlantis' wards have survived through being trapped in air pockets, though mutant winds roam freely about so beware! Of course it's inevitable that some areas are flooded by ice-water too, and it is here that DK and Diddy encounter the worst of their fears..."
