Jr. Klap Trap[1], also called simply Klap Trap[2] or Jr.[3], is an abnormally large Klaptrap who appears in the Donkey Kong Country animated series. He is voiced by Ron Rubin.[1]

His size is approximately the size of Diddy Kong, and due to his large size, he is never used as ammunition for a Klap-Blaster. Jr. Klap Trap has dentures, which are usually removed by whoever he is working for whenever he becomes an annoyance. When they are removed, he usually complains about his hunger, though the words come out slightly slurred.

In "Booty and the Beast", Jr. Klap Trap's teeth is stolen by Kaptain Skurvy, which causes him to attempt to regain them from him. He later encounters Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, who have been tied-up by Kaptain Skurvy and his crew after they stole the Crystal Coconut. After bartering with them, he sets them free and explains his predicament through a song. After that, the three of them went to find Kaptain Skurvy. Eventually, the trio managed to track Skurvy down, and while he and his crew are busy battling with Diddy Kong and Donkey Kong, Jr. Klap Trap manages to reclaim his teeth. After regaining his teeth, he proceeds to devour Kaptain Skurvy's ship along with everything on board, including several cannonballs made of solid steel. Later, he comes across Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong on a dock. The Kongs are worried that he will attempt to bite them due to still being hungry, but he explains he is too full for dessert. He tells them he's no longer hungry "for today," followed by him laughing.

Jr. Klap Trap later appears in the episode "To the Moon Baboon", where he was constantly bothering the other Kremlings about his dentures being confiscated. When K. Rool orders for the Kongs' time capsule to be destroyed, he gives him his dentures back and offers to have him eat Bluster Kong's rocket, as Klump and Krusha's attempt to bomb the rocket failed. However, Diddy Kong distracts him by feeding him some regular barrels, and K. Rool punishes him by confiscating his dentures again.

In Donkey Kong 64, Klaptraps wear dentures. This may be a reference to Jr. Klap Trap.
