Kops are large, burly Kremlings who 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 covering their eyes. They 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 carefully navigate through the maze to cross the checkered flag without being caught by a Kop. If the Kongs get caught under a flashlight, they lose at the mini-game. When a Kop catches the Kong, it calls for backup on its transceiver.
