Kludge bears a resemblance to Krushas, Krunchas, Krumples, and Kasplats, although his relationship to any of these species is unknown. He 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. In the game, Kludge is the rival of Funky Kong. His bongos are chained and has a blue "X" on the sides and are also spiked on the top and bottom. He is extremely powerful, but lacking in all other departments. He is unlocked if the Diamond Cup is won with a Kremling.
If he is angered, he is rumored to give even King K. Rool trouble. His childlike manner has made him friends with Kip and Kass. He is also simple-minded and likes eating a lot. 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.
