Klanks are Kremling enemies found in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. According to Donkey Kong Country 2's credits, Klanks belong to the "Kremling Kuthroats" enemy class.
They only appear in the amusement ride levels of Krazy Kremland, namely "Target Terror" and "Rickety Race". Klanks are similar to Kutlasses in look, but to Krashes in manner, as they wildly careen along the rickety tracks on Roller Coasters, trying to drop barrels at the Kongs to knock them off of their carts. This way of attack is only seen in "Target Terror". In "Rickety Race", all 10 Klanks in the level must be defeated before reaching the finish area in order to obtain that level's DK Coin, which is not mandatory.
Klanks come in a variety of colors, which includes red, blue, yellow, pink, light green, and dark green. Their color does not affect how they move or attack though.
