Klaptraps are enemies from the Donkey Kong universe that appear in the stages Kongo Jungle and Jungle Japes in Super Smash Bros. Melee and by extension Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Klaptraps appear in two different colors: orange and blue. They are crocodile looking enemies that have a large mouth with big teeth.
The orange Klaptraps appear in Kongo Jungle. They jump out from the waterfall near the edges of the stone ledge and near the Barrel Cannons. If a character makes contact with a Klaptrap, he/she will take damage. The Klaptraps sometimes get stuck in the Barrel Cannon. If a character tries to use a barrel cannon with a Klaptrap stuck in it, they will not be able to use the cannon and will also take damage from making contact with the Klaptrap.
The blue Klaptraps appear in Jungle Japes. They jump between the opening on either side of the middle section of the stage. If a character makes contact with a Klaptrap, they are meteor smashed and will not be able to recover back to the stage. Character hanging on the edge are vulnerable to a Klaptrap's attack.
Klaptrap appears as an Assist Trophy. When summoned they move around on the stage latching on to, and repeatedly biting fighters before launching them they are one of the many assist trophy characters that can be KO'd.
