Kremling Kuthroats was an pirate class formed by old Kremlings based on the home island Crocodile Isle that existed at some time prior to the Kremling Krew.[1] Currently in Donkey Kong franchise, members who were part from this class are undeads.


Background information[edit]

The Kremling Kuthroats was founded by the evil old Kritters all over Crocodile Isle, after the end of the ancient Kremling society that was kept on Lost World.[1][2] They started to establish a town above the second cliff, they built galleons, stole various values where they kept them in chests and deposit them in caves on the island itself.[3][4][5][1] The oldest members were Kackle, Kloak and other Kritters with the pirate attire.[6]

The Kremling Kuthroats was reorganized into the Kremling Krew by K. Rool who was a veteran pirate too.[1][7][8]

Donkey Kong franchise[edit]

In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, veteran pirate Kremlings from Kremling Kuthroats as Kloak and Kackle are seen as ghosts living in the old town that was dilapidated during the Kremling Krew's reign.[6][9][3][4][1] In that same game as the alive pirate veteran K. Rool orders the Kremling Krew members to return to their origins wearing the pirate attire from Kremling Kuthroats era.[10][11]

In Donkey Kong 64, a treasure cave in Gloomy Galleon was discovered where the Kremling Kuthroats kept that now is inherited to Kremling Krew.[1] Even the Kritters from this class appear as living skeletons where are seen in Fungi Forest (nighttime), Creepy Castle and Battle Arena Pad.
