“Look out below! Klinger climbs around in the rigging, ready to slide down on anyone below him.”
Klingers are climbing Kremlings that can scale ropes and chains. In Krem Quay levels, they can also scale swamp reeds. Klingers are orange reptiles with a yellow stomach. They have a long, scaly tail. Klingers also wear a green bandana with white spots on their head. They also wear a matching loincloth around their waist. Like most pirates, Klingers wear two hoop earrings. They have claws on their toes, but not their hands. They also carry a dagger in their mouth.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
Klingers first appear in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. When they slide down the ropes, they try to hit into the Kongs. If they are successful in doing so, the hero they hit is defeated. The defeated hero can be brought back with the help of a DK Barrel. However, if the Kongs throw an object at them, such as a barrel or a kannonball, the Klinger falls off the rope and is defeated. Klingers can also be defeated by being jumped on by one of the Kongs. They make major appearances in the level, Chain Link Chamber. In the Donkey Kong Country 2 Player's Guide, it is told that the Klingers are the only Kremlings that can climb and they had to learn it first, as other Kremlings are not natural-born climbers. According to the game's credits, Klingers belong to the "Kremling Kuthroats" enemy class.
Donkey Kong Land 2
Klingers reappear in the follow-up game of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Donkey Kong Land 2. Their role in the game is exactly like their role in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, which is climbing ropes and trying to defeat the Kongs.
