Kasplat, Donkey Kong 64

Kasplats are enemies appearing only in Donkey Kong 64. They are large, muscular Kremlings, similar to Krushas (which they are mistakenly referred to as by the Prima Games guide[1]) from Donkey Kong Country. They are King K. Rool's bodyguards, of whom he entrusted to guard the blueprints from Snide and the Kongs. All Kasplats wear a leather jacket, sunglasses, and have a tuft of hair on their head.


In the intro cutscene, a purple-haired Kasplat is seen arriving with a Kritter and Klump, the latter of whom accidentally bumps them aside when K. Rool calls his generals over.

When encountered, Kasplats attack by slamming on the ground, unleashing a shockwave in the process. They can also punch the active Kong if they approach them. The Kongs are required to defeat Kasplats, as each one drops a blueprint upon being defeated (this does not occur if Chunky Kong flattens a Kasplat while in Hunky Chunky mode). Every Kasplat has a different hair color, which is linked to a certain Kong. It also determines the color of both their blueprints and their produced shockwaves. If the appropriate Kong obtains the Kasplat's blueprint and later revisits the revived Kasplat, its hair color turns white. However, its shockwaves retain the color that it previously had. Kasplats are quite resilient, often requiring players to deliver multiple hits to defeat them. However, the Kongs can defeat a Kasplat in a single hit by using their shockwave attack or musical instrument move. Alternatively, five Oranges can defeat one. On a side note, some direct attacks can cause a Kasplat to fall down, but it will get back up afterward.

In the "Castle Intro," a cutscene played just before Creepy Castle is accessed the first time, a purple-haired Kasplat is shown attempting to flee out of Crocodile Isle, hoping that K. Rool (whom it calls "fatso") does not discover it losing many of the blueprints. Through a surveillance system, K. Rool hears Kasplat, and as Kasplat is running through the hallway, it runs into a large, red Klaptrap (presumably sent out by K. Rool), which munches its jaws, possibly eating the Kasplat afterward.

Kasplats appear in some of the Battle Arenas except for those in Jungle Japes, Angry Aztec, and Gloomy Galleon, as well as in the minigames Mad Maze Maul! and Stash Snatch!. They are also an enemy in multiplayer, where their attack can occasionally be used by a Kong if they collect a question mark or an Orange.

In the game's 101% ending, a Klump directs purple-, green-, and red-haired Kasplats to burp in a choir during the outtakes.

Every level has five Kasplats, except for Hideout Helm, which does not feature any Kasplats:

  • Jungle Japes
    • Donkey Kong: In a cave to the left of the central area near the X mark and the boulder.
    • Diddy Kong: In a cave to the right of the central area near the minecart ride's exit.

    • Tiny Kong: In the same cave as DK's Kasplat, just a little higher up.
    • Chunky Kong: After destroying the X mark and entering the underground cave, on a small platform to the right of the Bat statue's head.
  • Angry Aztec
