In-game instructions

Beaver Bother is a Bonus Stage in Donkey Kong 64.

Gameplay[edit]

The minigame is unique because the player controls a Klaptrap, marking its first playable appearance. The Klaptrap must herd a certain number of Gnawties into a circular hole in the center of a barrel within 60 seconds. The Gnawties spawn in the area and casually walk around move around the area. The Gnawties are unwilling to fall into the hole, so Klaptrap must bite his teeth to scare the Gnawties into running in a random direction. Sometimes this causes a Gnawty to run into the center hole. Once a Gnawty falls into a hole, a few more spawn into the stage. If Klaptrap falls down the hole, the player loses the minigame, therefore Klaptrap has the ability to jump. The player also loses the minigame if they run out of time. Once enough Gnawties are herded into the center hole, the Kongs win the minigame, and the active one is rewarded a Golden Banana (except if they replay it at Snide's H.Q.)
