Benny is a member of the Brothers Bear who appears in the game Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! Benny operates one of the chairlifts in Razor Ridge, alongside his twin brother Björn[1]. Benny and Björn may be named after ABBA members and songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and björn is the Swedish word for "bear."

Benny assists Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong in their journey by allowing them to use his chairlift at no charge to cross over Barbos's lake in Razor Ridge, which connects the levels Buzzer Barrage and Kong-Fused Cliffs. Unlike the other bears, Benny has no real problem that the Kongs can help him with, nor does he have possession of a Banana Bird or hold the key to solving a puzzle.
