Skiddas are members of the Kremling Krew encountered in the game Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III. According to the game's credits, Skiddas belong to the "Kremling Kreeps" enemy class.

History[edit]

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble![edit]

These pink Kremlings are rather uncommon enemies appearing only in levels filled with snow; they are first introduced in Skidda's Row, where they are the main enemies. Skiddas attack by sliding into the Kongs, although this may not be intentional since Skiddas seem rather unbalanced on ice and snow and skid out of control on it.

Like their green lookalikes, Kobbles, Skiddas are weak despite their burly look, and any attack can defeat them. Many Skiddas can be found on snow-capped roofs, so in most cases they can be avoided by passing in front of the chalets.

Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

Skiddas return in the game's pseudo-sequel, Donkey Kong Land III. In this game, they can be found in the three snow levels. Since the Game Boy is not as powerful as the SNES, Skiddas have the same color as Kobbles in this port (gray for Game Boy, green for Game Boy Color). They still have the same attack pattern and behavior.

Donkey Kong Country 3 (Game Boy Advance)[edit]

In the remake of the original Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Skiddas return and play the exact same role, except they now have a different voice when defeated, which is a more high-pitched and whiny one, like Kobbles.

Also, in this version, Skiddas appear in more levels than their green cousins Kobbles, because the latter were removed in Tidal Trouble.

Levels[edit]

Skiddas appear in the following levels:
