Barter is a member of the Brothers Bear who appears in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. He runs a swap shop business named Barter's Swap Shop, where he trades an item with his customer. Barter is in possession of a No.6 wrench, which Björn of Razor Ridge needs to repair his chairlifts. Barter is reluctant to trade the No.6 wrench, and he only agrees to trade it in exchange for the mirror. The Kongs can later pay ten bear coins to get the mirror back. While Barter has the mirror, his place is mirrored. Prior to owning it, Barter had a sloppier look. His appearance is neater when he has the mirror, but he explains that the change occurred because he fell into a lake. He reverts to his untidy look if the Kongs regain the mirror. Neither of these events happen in the Game Boy Advance version.

Barter's original appearance had discrepancies between his artwork and in-game appearance. His artwork shows him in a business attire, including a black hat, leather shoes, pants, and a purple suit. He also has a small mustache. In the game, Barter's mustache was made bigger, and his shirt was changed to striped and white, with a striped green and yellow tie. In the Game Boy Advance version, Barter wears a larger red hat, red pants with a black belt, and blue straps connecting to his belt. He also appears to wear a white, sleeveless shirt.
