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.
Green and blue Kritters appear as enemies. Both types walk around and turn at ledges, but will attack differently if they spot a player:
Both Kritter types are also part of the enemy waves in the generic version of the Vs. Enemy Team final battle.
The Kritter trophy appears in both versions of the game.
Kritter appears as a spirit for the game's Spirit mode.
