Kip is a Kremling child that appears as a playable character in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. He was made to rival Diddy Kong, and as such he has the same racing stats as him. His relationship with Kass is unknown. He wears a black shirt with a skull design, a red bandana, and red spiked wristbands. Like Kass, he is available from the start of the game. He can be seen training with Kludge, Diddy Kong, and Tiny Kong in the cutscene for the Cranky's Flight School. In the Records cutscene, he is seen with Tiny Kong, Funky Kong, Dixie Kong, and Kludge.

His original trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl states that he likes donuts, rushes into situations, and is cherished by the Kremlings because of his young age. Said description was translated directly for British English releases, although Kip's American English trophy is entirely different, instead focusing on Kip's performance in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast rather than details about the character himself. Kip also appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, where he is a spirit.

The little brat of the Kremlings and a naughty trickster. Kip is quick and corners as well as anyone, but his top speed is quite low. He sports a tough look with his black T-shirt and spiked wristbands--just the look he needs to prove he's one bad little dude. His attack is a double-legged kick. (American English)
The little brat of the Kremlings and a naughty trickster. Kip has a quick temper and he tends to rush into situations without thinking about the consequences. He has a fierce rivalry with Diddy Kong and will compete with him over pretty much anything. He simply adores donuts. Along with Kass he is one of the youngest Kremlings, which is why he is cherished by them so much. (British English)
