Kreepy Krow is the ghost of the boss Krow. They are both Mini-Neckies. Kreepy Krow appears as the boss of Gloomy Gulch in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. After Krow dies, a ghost can be seen flying out, which only occurs in the GBA version of game. This ghost is Kreepy Krow.

After the Kongs travel throughout the spooky Gloomy Gulch, they will go to Kreepy Krow's nest. Venturing onto this structure, the Kongs will encounter Kreepy Krow. He will send out a barrage of ghost Mini-Neckies to attack the Kongs, who must either attack or avoid these spectral birds, and jump on the live Mini-Necky deployed by Krow to summon a barrel from the sky. Like the previous battle with Krow, the Kongs can hit Kreepy Krow with the barrel to attack him, causing him to advance higher into his spooky nest.

After this, a hook will drop nearby, and the Kongs must use these hook to climb ropes in order to reach the higher area where Kreepy Krow is located. He will then begin to throw eggs at the Kongs to try to attack them. The Kongs must dodge the eggs and jump in a barrel nearby to reach the deceased bird. Again, he will send a barrage of ghostly Mini-Neckies at the Kongs, along with another living Mini-Necky. The Kongs must once again jump on the living Mini-Necky to summon a barrel. This allows them to attack Kreepy Krow again, causing him to fly upwards even further.

Hooks will then appear to allow the Kongs to climb the rope. The eggs Kreepy Krow sends down will this time become quicker than usual and the Kongs must evade the eggs quicker to jump into a barrel in order to reach the top of Kreepy Krow's exceedingly tall nest. When the Kongs reach Kreepy Krow for the third time, it will send a barrage of Mini-Neckies quickly, and making them more numerous, so the Kongs must evade or defeat the ghost Mini-Neckies quickly until the final living Mini-Necky comes out, on which the Kongs must jump on to summon a barrel. Then, the Kongs must hit Kreepy Krow with the barrel for a third time to defeat Krow for a second time, and for good.

For the SNES version of the game, Kreepy Krow does not appear as a member of the "Barnacled Bosses" group. However, in the Game Boy Advance version, he does appear as a member.
