Krackas are Knockas wearing TNT Barrels in the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! They are essentially a ground-bound counterpart to the rope-clinging Klasps, and are the game's equivalent of Kabooms from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.

In this game, they are only found in only one level called Stormy Seas, which is found in the area Pacifica, exclusive to the remake.

Krackas use the same attack pattern as regular Knockas; they chase after Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong, trying to bash into them. Unlike regular Knockas, Krackas explode after coming into contact with a Kong, actually hurting the Kongs instead of just knocking them away.

A Kracka retreats into its barrel if stomped; it can then be used like an ordinary TNT Barrel. If left alone, it reemerges once more to resume chasing the Kongs.



  • Through hacking, it can be seen that Krackas were going to appear in the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country 3, but they were removed for unknown reasons.
  • Krackas are not named in the game itself or its supplementary material. Instead, the name can be found near Knocka when viewing the credits with a HEX editor.
