"No one knows him or has seen him anywhere before."
—Translation of instruction booklet description

Mr. X is a Kremling who was set to appear in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. He did not appear in the final game at all, only to have a cameo in the German instruction booklet of DKC2, and also appeared in Nintendo Power 76. The name "Mr. X" was most likely a mere placeholder for the planned name, but this was not confirmed.

Mr. X appears to a pale-skinned Kremling with black clothes, two medals, red eyes, two hooks for his hands and has a saber. He appears to be a larger version of a regular Kremling Pirate, only with gray skin and a royal pirate shirt. The German booklet translates to this: "No one knows him or has seen him anywhere before." He also appears in the cover of the German Walkthrough guide of DKC2: [1]

It should be noted that Mr. X bears several similarities with Kackle, an undead enemy that made it into the game: both are dressed like pirates, have swords by their sides, possess no legs and are undead (since Mr. X has pale, clammy skin like that of an undead creature).

It has been confirmed by Steve Mayles that Mr. X was simply an early version of Kackle [2].
