Click-Clacks are blue beetles found in various locations on Crocodile Isle.

Click-Clacks first appear in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. In this game, the insects are fairly common enemies, appearing in several levels. Click-Clacks are quite durable; they are capable of surviving after being jumped on. Once jumped on, they remain defenseless, as it takes only one jump to knock them on their backs. While in this state, Click-Clacks can either be jumped on again to be defeated or be picked up and used as a projectile weapon against other enemies. Eventually, a Click-Clack that has been flipped on its back will manage to turn right-side up once more. A Click-Clack can be instantly defeated by using either Diddy Kong's cartwheel attack or by having Dixie use a ground-based Helicopter Spin.

Click-Clacks also appear in Donkey Kong Land 2. In this game, Click-Clacks act almost identically to their portrayal in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, with only one difference affecting gameplay. In Donkey Kong Land 2, after jumping on a Click-Clack, the player will still have the ability to control the Kongs in midair; this is not the case in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest — here, the Kongs will experience minor knock-back after jumping on a Click-Clack.

An enemy similar to Click-Clacks, called Knik-Knak, appear in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III.

Click-Clacks make a reappearance in DK: King of Swing and its sequel DK: Jungle Climber. In these games they climb around on Pegs and they cannot be attacked from the front as they can hurt Donkey Kong.


Click-Clacks appear in the following levels.
