The Klaptrap is a minor enemy that debuted in Donkey Kong Country (1994) on the Super Nintendo.

They are Kremlins and work for King K. Rool in the game. Usually they are simply using from right to left or from wall to wall and can be defeated easily through a jump on their heads. Sometimes one jump is not enough and the Klaptrap will move faster than before.

The Klaptrap returned as enemies in Donkey Kong 64 (1999) and made also small cameos in some of the Mario and Donkey Kong Spinoff games. Their latest appearances were in Mario Party 7 (2005) and Super Smash Bros Brawl. (2008)
