“What a cracking noise! It was good to hear her again!”

Brigadier Bazooka[1] is a member of the Brothers Bear in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! He is the Brothers Bear of Mekanos, where he has his own cabin, Bazooka's Barracks.


He appears in a Brigadier's outfit and has a large mustache. In the Game Boy Advance port, Bazooka is shown in active military attire without a mustache.


Bazooka is a veteran of the Kremean War. In one of his quotes, Bazooka mentions to the Kongs that he and his army were trapped in a clifftop area surrounded by another group, but cuts himself off before he specified who was surrounding them.[2]

During the game itself, Bazooka owns a cannon named Big Bessie. Bazooka wishes to power it back up but is unable to because he lacks the ammunition to do so. If the Kongs bring the Bowling Ball to Bazooka, he can use it as ammunition for Big Bessie. This fires the Kongs to Mekanos's Banana Bird Cave, which is suspended from a crane, "Sky High Secret". If the Kongs revisit Bazooka, he is happy that Big Bessie is working and happily offers them to reuse Big Bessie.
