Rambi the Rhino, the first Animal Friend ever encountered.

Animal Friends, also known as The Good Guys,[1] Animal Buddies,[2] or First Class Friends,[3] is a term relating to friendly creatures that aid Donkey Kong and his friends and family on their various adventures. Some of the ways Animal Friends aid the Kongs are by defeating enemies and unlocking secrets. Animal Friends first appeared in the game Donkey Kong Country and have appeared in most subsequent Donkey Kong franchise games. There is also a similar group of allies known as Jungle Buddies,[4] but none of its members have mingled with the usual Animal Friend so far.
