DKC: Tropical Freeze - Viking K.Rool by Danny-Jay DKC: Tropical Freeze - Viking K.Rool by Danny-Jay
I'm really hoping that King K.Rool would be in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, but to fill the gap of anticipation, here is what I think he'd look like if it turned out he was the leader of the Snomads.
He would be called Viking K.Rööl (I couldn't put 'ö' in the title of the deviation.), and he'd wear similar clothing to the Snomads, but keeping his golden cuffs and wielding a large axe.

I'm really looking forward to Tropical Freeze, and I'm hoping K.Rool returns as the main villain, or even as the fourth playable character that Nintendo have hinted. :D

Update 2:
Once again, thanks for all the favorites, guys.
Its pretty much confirmed now that this guy is the main villain of sorts.
Since they're keeping him in the shadows, he could be K.Rool in disguise, but it's seeming less likely with every new thing they show.
Still, this game looks like utter brilliance and I'm grabbing it day one. :D

Also, this guys clothing looks like my K.Rool designs clothing; Spooky, huh? XD

Thanks for all the favorites and comments so far, I appreciate it. :D
Its actually been leaked on the newest version of DKCTF Boxart that a certain character is the fourth playable character, but theres always the strong hope that the main villain could be the Kremling King himself. :D

I'd like him to come back and lead the Snomads, the Tikis and the Kremlings in the ultimate battle for DK Isle!!

K. Rool wasn't in Tropical Freeze (though I suspect he's being saved for a big return), but Lord Fredrik's combat strategy strongly references K. Rool's strategies.

See, THIS shoulda been the final boss!

More like a hidden boss after beating the final boss.

=O Exactleeeeh! (In that case, he wouldn't be a final boss.)

Great work! But i don't think K.Rool is the leader of the Snomads, like he wasn't the leader if the Tiki's. Plus the Snomads seem to be animals that live in cold places. 

Hopefully the Kremlin's will return in the third one.

If there is a third one. But still I'd like to see King K. Rool in a DKC game again.
