Finisher King Krusha K. Rool

King K. Rool is the main antagonist of the Donkey Kong series, and was created by .snickedge (tbc) as the (currently) sixth character. He is a unique heavyweight that is surprisingly agile and has access to various types of weapons and abilities, including a blunderbuss that can shoot cannonballs and create shockwaves with his high jumps.


King K. Rool's motives weren't really explained, but he and the Kremling Krew came to Donkey Kong's self-titular island to steal the ape's Banana Hoard, sealing Diddy Kong in a barrel as they ran off. It was this that sparked the rivalry between the ape and King K. Rool, and following each defeat he suffered from the Kongs he would try something new, such as becoming a pirate and kidnapping Donkey Kong, or becoming a scientist and eventually taking away Diddy Kong, which often called for new heroes.
