Kronans are an ancient race of rock-like humanoid beings.
In 2013, one Kronan warrior was a member of the Marauders, and was present during the battle against the Asgardians on Vanaheim. The warrior attempted to duel Thor, but was destroyed with a single uppercut from Mjølnir.
Korg, a Kronan, attempted to begin a revolution on his home world. However, no one except for two other people showed up, causing the revolution to fail. As punishment for his attempt to overthrow the government, he was exiled to Sakaar and forced to become a gladiator in the Grandmaster's Contest of Champions.

Kronans are tall humanoids that tower over other races such as Asgardians and Vanir. Much of their body's epidermis is composed of highly durable rocks that provide them superhuman strength and allow them to withstand many attacks. Because of this, Kronans eschew most forms of armor in battle.
- In the comics, the Kronans are also known as the Stone Men from Saturn, although they are native to the planet Ria. They were introduced in Journey into Mystery #83, the same issue that introduced Thor.
