Robokremlings[1] are robotic versions of Kritters encountered in Donkey Kong 64. Robokremlings appear as semi-common enemies in the area Frantic Factory, which is the only level that features them. Robokremlings attack in a similar manner to normal Kritters, by punching and biting. They can only take out one melon slice at a time, but the reward for defeating a Robokremling is two melon slices. They, along with Klumps, Koshas, purple Klaptraps, and Klobbers, are one of the few Kremling enemies in Donkey Kong 64 that are either resistant or completely invulnerable to basic attacks and weapon attacks.

Robokremlings are metallic gray with glowing red eyes and yellow wind-up keys in their backs. They can use these keys to wind themselves up after they have been walking around long enough. While they can be attacked directly, Robokremlings are able to withstand almost any kind of attack. The only way to defeat them for good is with an Orange, the shockwave attack, a musical instrument, or by using Chunky Kong's Primate Punch.
