Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
Like most enemies, Click-Clacks move around in a set pattern. They are shown to have some durability, because Diddy and Dixie Kong can defeat a Click-Clack by jumping on it twice. From the first jump, the Click-Clack falls onto its back. It is defenseless while in this state, and the Kongs can jump on it again to defeat it. The Kongs can pick up a Click-Clack while it is on its back, and can also defeat it by throwing it at another enemy. Click-Clacks can instantly be defeated from either Diddy's Cartwheel Attack or Dixie's Helicopter Spin, by throwing a carriable object, such as a barrel or kannonball at them, or if Diddy or Dixie pick it up and throw it at another enemy.
In the sequel Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, yellow Knik-Knaks act as the successor to Click-Clacks in that they are also defeated from two jumps, the first of which flips them over.
Donkey Kong Land 2
Click-Clacks make their second appearance in Donkey Kong Land 2. Here, Click-Clacks behave almost identically to their first appearance aside from one minor difference: if either Diddy or Dixie jump on a Click-Clack, the player can move them as they bounce back in midair. Click-Clacks appear in fewer levels than in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.
During the end credits of the Japanese release, Click-Clacks are known as Beetles.
DK: King of Swing / DK: Jungle Climber
Click-Clacks make a reappearance in DK: King of Swing and its sequel DK: Jungle Climber, where they patrol around Peg Boards. They cannot be attacked from the front, as this makes their pincers injure Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.
A Click-Clack (under its Japanese name, which is just Beetle) makes a brief cameo in Volume 14 of Super Mario-Kun. The last part of the book has a series of comics based on Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, including a 'find the differences' activity between several enemies, including Click-Clack.
Click-Clack appears in both Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2 unless otherwise noted.
