As his original tweet has become very popular, Mayles decided to share a few tidbits about King K. Rool and Donkey Kong Country. First, he shared some concept art of the Kremlins and tough-looking King K. Rool called “Krudd”:
Unearthed some very early #DKC Kremling concepts, which showed the origins of a far more serious and tough-looking #KRool as 'Krudd'. Also the military theme that was dumped pic.twitter.com/DEYJhLe5OY

Mayles then shared a piece of paper which shows Donkey Kong Country was originally going to be named “Monkey Mayhem” and King K. Rool was called “Kommander”.
Never expected this tweet https://t.co/3IpVWMAcDU about #KingKRool in #SmashBros to be so popular. As a moderately interesting bonus follow up, an early naming sheet shows K. Rool was going to be 'Kommander' and #DKC was going to be called 'Monkey Mayhem' pic.twitter.com/SvwnOxXN2S
