Klump is a large, obese member of the Kremling Krew. He typically is used as a ground troop.

Although he has appeared in multiples in some games, it is confirmed that Klump is an individual as he is referred to as "Klump the Kremling" in the manual of Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong 64. The player's guide for Donkey Kong Country also suggests that he is one Kremling. He is also one of K. Rool's generals according to the manual of Donkey Kong 64.

Klump can only be harmed by either a frontal attack (such as Diddy's cartwheel), Donkey Kong jumping on him, or by having a barrel thrown at him.
