Kuchuka is a Kremling in a purple painted Barrel with a menacing face on it that appears in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and is the bomb-throwing brother of Knocka, Klasp and Kracka.

Kuchukas can be defeated in one way; they can only be blown up with a TNT Barrel. It attacks Dixie and Kiddy by throwing bombs in two ways, which are 1. individually, and 2. in threes. They only appear in the level Pot Hole Panic.

These enemies reappear in Donkey Kong Land III acting the same as in the semi-sequel, but are found in more locations. They are located in the end of Stalagmite Frights and Whiplash Dash, Kuchuka Karnage, Haunted Hollows and Ghoulish Grotto, the first, second, third and sixth levels of the Lost World.



  • These enemies are the only types of Barrels that cannot be picked up.
  • These enemies, according to the credits, belong in the "Kremling Kreeps" enemy class.
  • There are unused sprites of this enemy going into the position of rolling, and another of it rolling, suggesting that it could have been picked up and thrown at some point in development.
