Krackas are a variant of Knockas wearing a TNT Barrel in the Game Boy Advance port of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! 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. When the Kracka is retreated in its TNT Barrel, the Kongs can pick up Kracka and use it as a TNT Barrel, which effectively defeats it.
