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.

Trivia[edit]

  • Krusha also has been shown to be able to perfectly imitate the voices of others, including King K. Rool and Donkey Kong, as shown in the episode "Kong for a Day".
  • Krusha's stupidity is due to his dislodged brain, as seen in "From Zero to Hero". Apparently his brain fell out his skull and has been sitting inside his pelvis or butt ever since. In "Speed", it is shown that Krusha can regain his intelligence or stupidity if he suffers a strong blow to the head. And in "It's a Wonderful Life" the island experiences an alternate canon where Donkey Kong doesn't exist and for this reason, Krusha appears intelligent. It could be concluded that Donkey Kong is the cause of Krusha's stupidity, most likely from the countless times Donkey strikes Krusha in the head. "Bad Hair Day" is the only other episode where Krusha does not seem dimwitted.
