Kremlings - the definitive classification

One of my headcanons dictate that Kremlings are actually mammals that happen to look like reptiles.

Well... mostly.

Obviously, they're meant to be reptiles. But I'm a nerd and I think these things through too much. I mean, c'mon. I have a lot of theories to make sense of it. SO here goes nothing.

There will be talk of mammaries in this article.

1. They're actually warm-blooded.

A lot of kritters and maybe a single krusha hop/strut around in the icy peaks of Gorilla Glacier, in the first game. The second game had krunchas walking about merrily in K. Rool's own personal ice storage. And let's not forget the skiddas around the K3! A reptile wouldn't last in those icy areas for more than an hour.

Not to mention they run around for little reason nearly all the time. Real crocodiles lay about in the sun all day, only moving to eat or mate, being dependent on warmth to survive. Kremlings usually also spend time playing video games and running after crystal coconuts, among other frivolous pastimes.

That, and King K. Rool clearly blushes in shame, in the episode Just Kidding.

A whimsical fairy tale gone wrong

One game that has ever stayed in my mind as the best game ever, is Banjo-Kazooie.

This game was released on the Nintendo 64 and as soon as it came out, it blew people's minds. It was rumoured to be a game that would rival the immensely popular Super Mario 64 by a mile. But it did more than that for me. It exceeded it.

By more than a mile.

One of my most cherished art works. I believe it shows my love for the game and the relation between the two main characters quite well. (BTW: Kazooie's diving after  Banjo after he got knocked unconscious.)

Banjo-Kazooie appealed to me more than any other game did. First, it was about anthropomorphic animal characters. I always adored animal characters playing main roles in anything (which, undoubtedly, made me to be a furry later on, which I only discovered a month ago.)
