First appearance Donkey Kong 64 (1999)
Variant of Kremling

Kops are large, burly Kremlings that only appear in Donkey Kong 64 during the minigame Stealthy Snoop. They wear security guard outfits, a red tie, blue jeans, and a red hat which covers their eyes. Kops hold a flashlight in their left hand and a handheld transceiver in the right hand.

Kops patrol the maze with their flashlight, keeping an eye out for the Kongs. The objective of Stealthy Snoop is for the active Kong to navigate through a maze and cross the checkered flag without being caught by a Kop. If the Kong is caught by a Kop, they lose at the mini-game, and the Kop appears to be calling calls for backup on its transceiver.

Despite their minor role, a Kop appears in a group artwork, where Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are hiding in a corner from one shining its flashlight down the following path.
