Serving you, King K. Rool, is my life!
~ Klump

Klump is a King K. Rool's right-hand, second-in-command of the Kremling Krew, general of the Kremling army and Krusha's friend and mentor in the Donkey Kong series where he is one of the minions. He is the secondary antagonist in almost every game in the original Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land trilogy.


Klump's most common appearance is as a purple obese Kremling with an army belt lined with six pockets, black boots, and a strong green army helmet on his head. In his pirate days as Kannon, he wears earrings, a large belt, pirate boots, a black eye patch, and a large black hat with a human skull and cross-bones on it. In Donkey Kong 64, he has the same appearance, but he wears a yellow shirt. In Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast, Klump wears a bucket on his head and green pants. In the TV series, Klump has the same appearance but his skin is green.


Donkey Kong Country

Klump leads a Kremling squad to take Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard and encounter Diddy Kong during a stormy night on Donkey Kong Island. Due to their helmet, Klump cannot be hurt by some attacks (such as Diddy Kong jumping on him). Klump can only be harmed by either a frontal attack (such as Diddy's cartwheel), Donkey Kong jumping on them, the aid of an Animal Friend, or by having a barrel thrown at them.

Donkey Kong Country 2

Just like other members of the Kremling Krew during this time, Klump (as Kannon) patroled a Crocodile Isle areas to prevent Diddy and Dixie from save Donkey Kong. Klump attack by shooting barrels or cannonballs at the Kongs in whatever direction they're facing, either forward or downward. Without his helmet, Klump can be defeated by any attack method.

Donkey Kong 64

Klump together with Kasplat and Kritter (chief technician) are ordered by K. Rool for to steal Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard, which consists of two hundred Golden Bananas, and imprison the other Kongs, so as to buy time and distract Donkey Kong while the Kremling Krew repairs the damaged Blast-O-Matic. They can attack the Kongs physically and throw unripe, green Oranges. They can also be seen eating their Oranges, which is comically followed by an explosion in their stomach, causing them to burp. Although the Kongs can attack Klump with their direct attacks, they can only truly be defeated by using a shock wave attack, Orange, a musical instrument or by having Chunky Kong touch them while in his Hunky Chunky state.

Donkey Kong Country TV series

General Klump (sometimes called "Klumpy") is often put in charge of K. Rool's various plots and schemes in some games, novels and TV series. In same TV series reveals more about his life.

Despite his fearsome appearance, Klump was actually a big softy; he actually befriends Dixie Kong and helps her find her pet lobster Thermidor in the aforementioned episode "Klump's Lumps".

Despite being constantly berated and disrespected by K. Rool, Klump remains ever faithful to him and serving K. Rool is his life.

Klump is clumsy when was young boy when unintentionally devastated the swamp where he and his family lived. In a show of true brotherly love, his older brother Kaptain Skurvy decided to take the blame for Klump resulting the Skurvy's banishment from the home swamp.
