Kroctopus is a large, green sea monster and a boss that exclusively appears in the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 3.

Kroctopus replaces Barbos as the boss of the area Razor Ridge, appearing in the level Kroctopus Krush. Due to the fact that Kroctopus is half-hidden underwater Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong cannot fight it directly. Instead, the Kongs must trick Kroctopus into setting off bombs that drop from the sky with its claw-tipped limbs.

After being damaged three times, Kroctopus will attack the Kongs at a faster pace, it becomes visibly angrier and its color changes to a lime green. After being hurt by the explosions three more times, Kroctopus gets even angrier and turns a red-orange color. In this phase, Krocktopus attacks with two limbs at a time with the center limb always being one of the two. After hitting three more bombs, Krocktopus retreats into the lake, signaling its defeat.
