Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest / Donkey Kong Land 2
In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2, Kannons attack by shooting barrels or kannonballs at the Kongs in whatever direction they're facing, either forward or downward. Kannons can be found in several levels, but mostly underground areas. Despite being large and burly, Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong can easily defeat a Kannon with any attack method.
According to the instruction booklet, Kannons are simply Klumps trained to use such weapons. However, while normal Klumps wear army gear (green helmet, grenade belt, etc.) Kannons wear more of a pirate ensemble, such as earrings, a large belt, and a large black hat with a skull and cross-bones on it. Also, Kannons seem to have distinct ears.
According to the game's credits, Kannons belong to the "Kremling Kuthroats" enemy class.
In both games, Kannons first appear in the level Kannon's Klaim, which is named after them.
Donkey Kong Country 2
A Kannon 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 Kannon.
