|First appearance||Donkey Kong Country 3 (GBA) (2005)|
Krackas are a variant of Knockas wearing a TNT Barrel in the Game Boy Advance port of Donkey Kong Country 3. They are the on-land counterpart to the rope-clinging Klasps, and are the game's equivalent of Kabooms from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Krackas only appear in the Pacifica level Stormy Seas, which itself only appears in the Game Boy Advance version.
Krackas have the same attack pattern as regular Knockas; they chase after Dixie and Kiddy Kong, trying to bash into them. Unlike regular Knockas, Krackas explode upon contact with a Kong, causing them to be hurt, rather than knocking them back. If the Kongs jump on a Kracka, it temporarily retreats into its TNT Barrel. After a few seconds, it re-emerges from its TNT Barrel and continues chasing the Kongs. Once a Kracka has retreated in its TNT Barrel, the Kongs can pick the Kracka up and throw it. In doing so, the Kracka continues to roll until it hits an enemy or a wall. This gives it more range than a normal TNT Barrel, which explodes upon hitting the ground.
An unused sprite for Kracka appears in the original version of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! Krackas were not named in the game itself or its supplementary material. Instead, it originates from an unused text string in the end credits, near Knocka's name.
