Krusha is one of the main characters and antagonists on the Donkey Kong Country TV series. On the show Krusha is apparently King K. Rool's bodyguard and a high-ranking member of the Kremling Krew. Despite these high positions and responsibilities, Krusha is fairly dimwitted, having a hard time grasping simple concepts and becoming easily distracted. Krusha likes watching "The Sing Along with Uncle Swampy Show", a show meant for young children.
Krusha is also apparently best friends with K. Rool's second-in-command, General Klump, and is often used as the muscle in Klump's schemes. Despite being well-meaning, Krusha's attempts to aid the Kremling Krew often end up in disaster, causing more damage than good.
In the episode "Speed", Krusha is run over with a minecart, causing him to become highly intelligent. He then devises a diabolical plot to kill the Kongs and then claim the Crystal Coconut for himself, managing to force even K. Rool into submission. Krusha is quite evil in this newfound state of mind, considering K. Rool not ruthless enough in his schemes. Despite K. Rool giving in to Krusha and letting him lead, Krusha considers him disposable, only intending to save him upon Klump's request. However, by the end of the episode, Krusha gets run over again, once again becoming the dimwitted henchman he always was, and fortunately, everyone survives.
Krusha was voiced by Len Carlson.
