Trophy information[edit]

King K. Rool
The demented head of the Kremlings and big boss in the Donkey Kong series. K. Rool is a giant, greedy glutton with a serious eye tic. While he fits the evil boss mold nicely, he's just enough of a bumbler to have gained a few fans over the years. His plan to blow up the DK Isles with his Blast-o-Matic shows how unbalanced he is.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

King K. Rool appears as both a trophy and a sticker.

The supreme commander of the Kremling Krew. King K. Rool steal bananas from Donkey Kong and ends up kidnapping Diddy Kong. He is so good at playing dead that sometimes the credits even roll as he lies there, feigning defeat. His brother[sic], Kaptain K. Rool, made an appearance in the game Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.

North America Whereas Mario often squares off against Bowser, Donkey Kong must fight against King K. Rool. He's a big croc with a big attitude...and a tiny crown. He probably could have been Donkey Kong's most trustworthy animal friend. Think he'll ever have a change of heart? Not likely.
Europe This guy is to Donkey Kong what Bowser is to Mario. This crowned Kremling has a serious attitude problem. If only he could have been one of DK's Animal Friends instead... Maybe with just a little change of heart, he still could be! On second thoughts...nope. Never gonna happen.

King K. Rool is the leader of the Kremlings and the main antagonist of most games in the Donkey Kong series, making his debut in Donkey Kong Country as the final boss. In the games that he appears in, he steals Donkey Kong's banana hoard for unknown reasons, but two official reasons given are either that he likes bananas, or he's stealing them in order to starve Donkey Kong and occupy his treehouse[1]. He made his return again in multiple other games, including Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, and Donkey Kong 64, as well as the Donkey Kong Land series. However, he did not appear in either game of the revived Donkey Kong series (Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze), and neither do his Kremlings.
