Kroctopus is a large green underwater monster boss exclusive to the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and replaces Barbos who is relocated to Pacifica. Kroctopus appears to have crab claws located many places on his body. He is located in Kroctopus Krush.
When Dixie and Kiddy enter the battle with Kroctopus, Kroctopus comes out from under the water and uses his claws to attack Dixie and Kiddy who must avoid them. After some time, a TNT Barrel falls out of the sky and the duo must trick Kroctopus into pinching the TNT Barrel, but if the primates do not avoid it, they become attacked by the TNT blast. When the two do this four more times, Kroctopus sinks underwater, looking like it ended battle.
In a while, Kroctopus rises out from the water in a rage by attacking quicker with his claws. The two must avoid his claws and make him touch the TNT Barrel again with his claws three more times until Kroctopus sinks underwater again. Kroctopus then emerges out of the water colored red, explaining his fury at Dixie and Kiddy. This time, he uses two of his claws instead of just one. The duo must make his claws touch the TNT Barrel three more times, making nine total to fully defeat him and gain his Bonus Coin he has been holding on to.
