Kronk Pepikrankenitz is the (former) secondary antagonist of The Emperor's New Groove who becomes the titular main character of the direct-to-DVD sequel Kronk's New Groove. He is Yzma's right-hand man, who appears to be athletic and muscular, but very simple-minded and is insulted by Yzma for his clumsy behavior and incompetence. Despite his stupidity, he is shown to have impressive cooking skills (however Yzma admitted that she never cared for his spinach puffs, which caused him to leave her behind and help her enemies stop her), and can speak a squirrel's dialogue. He is voiced by actor Patrick Warburton.
