Kuchukas are members of the Kremling Krew encountered in the games Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III. Kuchukas resemble Knockas and Klasps, but have purple arms. They also reside inside of purple barrels filled with bombs, as opposed to green or red ones. Also, unlike Knockas who charge into the Kongs, Kuchukas remain stationary in their barrel and constantly hurl bombs outward. Kuchukas cannot be defeated in any way and can only be avoided, making them the only type of barrel that cannot be picked up. According to the game's credits, Kuchukas belong to the "Kremling Kreeps" enemy class.
Kuchukas are only found in the level Pot Hole Panic, where they attempt to throw bombs at Squawks and Ellie. A Kuchuka also appears in a Bonus Area, trying to prevent the Kongs and Squitter from grabbing green bananas.
In Donkey Kong Land III, Kuchukas are found in more than one level, but they only appear late in the game. A single Kuchuka is found at the very end of Stalagmite Frights. They appear again in the following levels of the Lost World: Whiplash Dash (only in a bonus stage, though), Kuchuka Karnage, Haunted Hollows, and Ghoulish Grotto. In the monochrome version, since it looks identical to Knockas, it can be confused for one initially.
