Kannons are a type of enemy featured in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. They are an alias of Klumps, dressed in pirate gear. Kannons carry a cannon with them (hence their name) from which they shoot out either cannonballs or barrels individually. Most Kannons face left or right, although some face downward. Kannons can be defeated through various means, including a jump attack.


He wears a black pirate hat with a white human skull and cross-bones, a black eyepatch on his left eye, hoop earrings, a brown belt with a gold buckle and brown leather boots.


Like other Kremling Krew members during the events of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest/Donkey Kong Land 2, Klump is ordered by K. Rool to dress up as a pirate of the Kremling Kuthroats' time.[1][2][3] He is nicknamed Kannon, because he used that weapon to attack Kongs shooting cannonballs (front and down) and normal barrels. Without his military helmet, Kannon is easily defeated by any attack.

  • Instruction booklet (page 29): "It looks like Klump can shoot!"
  • Nintendo Player's Guide (page 14): "Kannon is a barrel-chested baddie who speaks softly and carries a big...well, cannon! He's got an unlimited supply of ammunition, and he's perfectly happy just standing in one place, blasting away until the Kremcows come home! He doesn't pause very often, but there's usually a pattern to his cannon fire."
