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

Update:
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

The barrel in this picture is official artwork from DKCR.

I'm thinking that if someone were to make a SNES-esque version of Tropical Freeze, K. Rööl here would replace what's-his-face.

It actually would've been great to see King K. Rool as a viking. XD

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.

More like a hidden boss after beating the 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.

Take a cue from Gannon, K.Rool. Pull this stunt!

It certainly would be interesting if K Rool ended up being the leader of the snomads. Seeing a Croc be the leader of Penguins, Walruses, Seals, Owls, rabbits...would be a very interesting sight indeed. With K Rool being a cold blooded creature, it has a chance of working out.

Nonetheless, epic drawing you made here, I wish K. Rool got more attention, because I feel like Retro is ignoring him.

Oh, that just awesome. If K. Rool somehow turns out to be the head of the Snomads, that would be epic.

It would be brilliant if K.Rool returned in Tropical Freeze, as either the main antagonist or even the fourth playable character. :D

Amazing work, I can totally see him as a viking, if K.Rool would appear in the game. ;w;

K.Rool is due for another major game appearance after DK: Jungle Climber, so I'm sure K.Rool will appear in some form in Tropical Freeze. :D

You're welcome. :D
After I saw the release of the game cover of DKC: Tropical Freeze, I start to believe Cranky Kong is supposed to be the 4th hidden playable character. Still I hope we will see K. Rool again somehow. <:3

Why won't Nintendo put K. ROOL in the games anymore?

I know the reason he wasn't in Returns was because Retro/Nintendo wanted to try a new main antagonist with the Tiki-Tak tribe, but I think they may put K.Rool in Tropical Freeze due to high demand by fans. :D

You drew K. Rool, pretty nicely. He looked good as a pirate, so why not a viking? :la:

He would suit a Viking, which is why I'm hoping he's in Tropical Freeze.
