Kritters are the basic enemies of the classic Donkey Kong Country games, with a role similar to Mario's Goombas. They damage the player on contact, and can be defeated by a jump, a rolling tackle, or a thrown barrel. Green Kritters walk back and forth, while blue Kritters move around by jumping.
A member of the Kremlings. Led by King K. Rool, Kritters are the grunts of the army. They appear frequently in Donkey Kong Country in green, purple, blue, and other color variations—the blue ones will jump after Donkey Kong.
