|A large ninja monkey wielding two scimitars.|
Kruk is a monkey that is the head of the Ninja Monkey Guards of Marim, and is located on the east side of the gate, up on the hill. He is the monkey that shouts for the gates to be opened when you approach in monkey form. He is involved in the Monkey Madness quest, and players must talk to him before meeting King Awowogei to make an alliance with him. Although he has a combat level, he cannot be attacked until a certain stage in Monkey Madness II, nor does he directly attack the player (he simply knocks the player out instead).
He also looks bigger than the other monkey ninjas. If you are caught wandering in Marim as a human, he will knock you out with the aid of his 2 guards and place you in the jail where you must escape. To reach Kruk, you can go to the cliff opposite of where Kruk is, there should be an opening allowing you to walk up the hill. Next, climb the ladder at the top of the cliff, cross the bridge, and go down the other ladder.
He is also involved in the Monkey Madness II quest, in which the player navigates through a large dungeon to kill him in order to retrieve a paw from his corpse, which is used to make a Kruk monkey greegree in order to impersonate Kruk when talking to Awowogei.
When being fought Kruk will use all three combat styles: melee, ranged and magic. Kruk's melee attack is very powerful, capable of hitting up to 30s.
The fight with him is instanced, if you die while fighting him you will lose your dropped items, beware.
