Kackles are ghostly Kremlings from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest that chase after Diddy and Dixie Kong in the level "Haunted Hall". As soon as the Kongs enter their territory, the chase begins.
They are one of the few enemies to not appear in Donkey Kong Land 2, but Kackle has a reason in specific; the Game Boy was not able to support his sprite. Thus Haunted Hall, their residence, has been replaced with Krazy Koaster.
Kackles appear as skeletal Kremlings wearing colorful bandannas, a patch on an eye and holding scimitars in a belt. Once the player pass the first gate of "Haunted Hall" level, a Kackle will be found already waiting for the Kongs; a timer appears above of the screen, which the Kongs must pass the zone before the time limit. In case that the Kongs have not left the zone yet and time runs out, the Kackle will appear and attacks either Diddy or Dixie. Getting Plus and Minus Barrels will alter for how long Kackles keep intangible.
There are a total of four areas in the level where Kackles appears in, two before the checkpoint and two after the checkpoint.
- In the Game Boy Advance remake of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, all Kackles in the game wear the same bandanna color, red. In the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version of the game the Kackles wear either a blue, green, yellow or red bandanna.
- In Donkey Kong 64 a skeletal Kremling named Resident Demon appears. The Resident Demon is somewhat similar in appearance to a Kackle and may have been inspired by Kackle.
- According to the credits from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Kackle belongs in the Kremling Kuthroats class.
