Kass is a Kremling child and a playable character in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. She was made to rival Dixie Kong, and as such she has the same racing stats as her. She is also the first known Kremling to be explicitly female. She also has hair, a trait most Kremlings lack (she shares this trait with Kalypso and Kasplat). Her relationship with Kip is unknown. Like Kip, she is available from the start of the game. She wears a purple and pink striped dress with a skull design.

In the Single Racing cutscene, she can be seen alongside Kalypso, Kritter, Klump, Tiny Kong, Dixie Kong, Donkey Kong and Lanky Kong. In the Time Trial cutscene, she and Lanky Kong race together.

Kass also appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as one of the trophies in the game. Her European trophy in this game states that she wants to grow up and has a fear of frogs, especially Winky.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl trophy

The trophy for Kass was completely rewritten for the NTSC release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, focusing on the character's performance in Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast rather than details about the character herself. The PAL and Korean releases of the game retains the information from the Japanese version.

Additionally, the NTSC release states that Kass wears a jumbo ribbon despite not shown wearing one.

A precocious Kremling child. Kass is an ever-so-slightly malicious girl who wants to grow up ever so much. Her trademark look is a camisole and jumbo ribbon. She exhibits top-of-the-line cornering and acceleration but has close to the lowest top speed of all the characters in Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast. She attacks with spin moves. A precocious Kremling girl who has an air of aloofness about her. She has beautiful locks, and looks charming in her striped dress. Clever but vicious as well, she has a keen rivalry with Dixie Kong and is always plotting an idea to twist her tail. She has a fear of frogs, which is why she tends to shrink away whenever Winky's around...
