Klobber is a Kremling male who is one of Kremling Krew members. He is the most treacherous Kremling who uses a Barrel as a disguise to attack the Kongs when they get close to him and uses it as protection to push them away.

When he uses a TNT Barrel, Klobber becomes Kaboom and is quite dangerous when using this barrel. Because if he pushes anyone, he explodes like a real bomb.


Klobber is a green/yellow/red/black Kritter with big head, yellow belly, bruised right eye, pink bandage on right side, wears golden earrings and wears a wooden barrel/TNT barrel.


Along with his fellows from Kremling Krew in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2, Klobber patrolled areas of Crocodile Isle to stop Diddy and Dixie from saving Donkey Kong who was kidnapped by K. Rool. Klobber's attacks are just pushing, but also pushing to steal (Bananas & Extra-Life Balloons) and defeat (as Kaboom in the TNT barrel). His downside is when he hides in the barrel in which he is hit, he is used as a weapon against his colleagues or destroy secret doors. But he is completely defeated when he is hit by the invincible power of the Exclamation Barrel or steps on something pointy.

In Donkey Kong 64, Klobber along with the Kremling Krew is involved in the distraction under Klump's supervision making Donkey Kong recover all the Golden Bananas and save his Kong Family friends to buy time to fix Blast-O-Matic. He appears on Angry Aztec temples, Gloomy Galleon and Crystal Caves hidden on barrel to attack the Kongs. He can be defeated by Orange Grenades, shockwaves or musical instrument power. As Kaboom, he appears on Jungle Japes mine cart challenge, Angry Aztec five-doored temple and Gloomy Galleon in the TNT Barrel to attack them until he self-destructs into soot.

In DK: Jungle Climber, Klobber is the only one from smaller group of the Kremling Krew along with Kritters on Ghost Island. Here he just climbs the Pegs trying to push the Kongs due to the fog that makes him invisible, but he can be seen on the map he is climbing on.

  • Nintendo Player's Guide (page 13): "A Green Klobber will try to push you around, but the Yelow Klobber steal bananas, and the Black Klobber steal lives. The Red Klobber hides in TNT Barrels and has a special name: Kaboom."

Donkey Kong 64

  • Prima Guide (page 16): "These cowardly Kremlings think a barrel will project them, but barrels can't withstand an Orange's explosion. Some Kremlings hide in TNT Barrel: keep your distance."





  • His name is a pun of the word Clobber.
