Kludge has an "X" across his stomach, three white stripes on both arms, chains around his wrists, red eyes, and yellow shorts with a skull belt. His bongos are chained, are spiked on the top and bottom, and have a blue "X" on the sides.
In the Cranky's Flight School cutscene, he is seen training along Diddy Kong, Tiny Kong, and Kip. In the Records cutscene, he is seen with Tiny Kong, Funky Kong, Dixie Kong, and Kip looking at a scoreboard.
