Click-Clacks are blue beetle enemies that appear in both Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2.


Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest[edit]

Click-Clacks first appear in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. They are common enemies and appear in several levels in every world (except The Flying Krock and the Lost World.

Like most enemies, Click-Clacks move around in a set pattern. Click-Clacks have some durability, as shown from if Diddy or Dixie Kong jump on one, it falls on its back undefeated. While it is in this state, the Click-Clack is defenseless, allowing the Kongs to jump on it again to defeat it. However, after a few seconds from falling on its back, the Click-Clack hops back onto its feet and continues moving around. The Kongs can also pick up a Click-Clack while it is on its back. Click-Clacks can instantly be defeated from either Diddy's Cartwheel Attack or Dixie's Helicopter Spin, or by throwing a barrel or kannonball at them.

In the game's sequel, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, Click-Clacks seem to have been succeeded by the yellow Knik-Knaks, who behave similarly to Click-Clack.

Donkey Kong Land 2[edit]

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[edit]

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.


Click-Clack appears in both Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2 unless otherwise noted.
