King K. Rool (SSBU)
King K. Rool (キングクルール, King K. Rool) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. A long-running nemesis of Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and the rest of the Kong clan, he was the main antagonist of the original Donkey Kong Country trilogy and several subsequent games in the broader Donkey Kong series. He was announced as a newcomer alongside Simon, Richter, Chrom, and Dark Samus in the Ultimate-centric Nintendo Direct on August 8th, 2018. King K. Rool is classified as fighter #67.
Instead of using the voice of Toshihide Tsuchiya, who has voiced the character since 2007's Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, King K. Rool bellows like a real crocodile, similar to how Bowser, Donkey Kong, and Diddy Kong emit realistic animal sounds.
The following damage percentages were calculated without the damage multiplier that is active during one-on-one fights.
Full hop damage numbers are shown. Hover over the percentage numbers for short hop damage numbers (due to short hops having a 0.85% damage modifier).
Classic Mode: Super Heavyweight Class
All of King K. Rool's opponents are some of the heaviest characters in the game with most of them being antagonists.
Note: When fighting Charizard, its Pokémon Trainer is absent.
Role in World of Light
King K. Rool was among the fighters that were summoned to fight against the army of Master Hands.
During the opening cutscene, King K. Rool was present on the cliffside when Galeem unleashed his beams of light. He was vaporized offscreen and placed under Galeem's imprisonment along with the other fighters, excluding Kirby.
