The Kremling Twins, Kuff 'n' Klout

Kuff 'n' Klout (also known as the Kremling Twins[1]) are large Kremlings in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and are one of the only enemies that appear in this game that don't appear in Donkey Kong Land III. Even stronger than Krumples, Kuff 'n' Klout are found only in Krematoa. They appear in Stampede Sprint, Criss Kross Cliffs, and Tyrant Twin Tussle. They attack by making movements as in a game of leapfrog, or racing about the screen, shoulder to shoulder.

The Kremling Twins can only be defeated by barrels, or by using Squitter's webs, since Dixie and Kiddy will only hurt themselves if they try to attack the twins directly. If only one of them is defeated, the other will continue to charge and then disappear when Dixie Kong or Kiddy Kong go offscreen or remain motionless and suddenly disappear a few seconds later (GBA version). The only way to tell Kuff 'n' Klout apart is by their eye color; one of them has purple eyes while the other has green eyes. However, Kuff 'n' Klout both have green eyes in the game, and it is unknown which is which.

According to the game's credits, Kuff 'n' Klout belong to the "Kremling Kreeps" enemy class. Despite appearing in the game's staff roll, Kuff 'n' Klout do not appear until later, in Krematoa.
