Variant of Knocka

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 is a level only appearing in the Game Boy Advance port.

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, hurting the lead one in the process instead of knocking them back. If the Kongs jump on a Kracka, it temporarily retreats into its TNT Barrel and can be used as a regular TNT Barrel. After a few seconds, it re-emerges from its TNT Barrel to continue chasing the Kongs.



  • An unused sprite for Kracka appears in the original version of Donkey Kong Country 3. 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.
