Mario franchise strategy guide/Characters/Krunch
Krunch, one of the anthropomorphic crocodiles from the Donkey Kong games, was in Diddy Kong Racing as a playable character. As the story goes, he had been working on a spy mission to check for anti-Kremling plans. On Timber's Island, though, he ended up helping the creatures who were trying to kick Wizpig off of the island. He was going to reappear in the game Diddy Kong Pilot before the Rare Ltd. buyout occurred and the game was changed to Banjo-Pilot.
