Klubba, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

Klubba is a green, muscular Kremling in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Klubba speaks in a stereotypical pirate accent, fitting the theme of pirate enemies in Donkey Kong Country 2. He is the one that guards the entrance to the Lost World. Due to his immense size and strength, Klubba is extremely powerful and durable. He can lift his big, heavy, spiked club with only one hand in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. He's very foul tempered and greedy, as shown by his prices to get through his tollbooths, although he admits his prices aren't cheap. He surprisingly acts friendly if his toll is paid, which is the exact opposite of his normal nature of repeated death threats to Diddy and Dixie Kong if they don't pay him. When his toll is paid, he even comments that if the Kongs ever get in to any trouble, he will help them out in the best way he can, despite the Kremlings and the Kongs being sworn enemies. There are five tollbooths in Donkey Kong Country 2, each leading to one of the five levels of the Lost World. Three options are available:

  1. Pay 15 Kremkoins
  2. Fight Him
  3. Run Away

The second and the third option are pretty much the same thing. Selecting the second option will make Klubba use his club on the Kongs, returning them to the map.

He also implies that he doesn't favor King K. Rool's rule over the Kremlings, feeling that his fellow Kremlings are "miserable" under K. Rool. He also comments that "Kaptain K. Rool treats us rotten!", and hopes that the Kongs "scupper his plans.".

In the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 2, a fourth option was added called Bag a Bug. It costs five Banana Coins to play this minigame.

In Donkey Kong Land 2, Klubba's Kiosk is located on the main map next to Gloomy Gulch. All 47 Kremkoins are needed to enter the Lost World.
