- “People say that Benny and I are like your regular peas in a pod! How funny ha-ha. What does it mean?”
- —Björn, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!
Björn is a member of the Brothers Bear who appears in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! He has a twin brother named Benny, and both bears operate one of the chairlifts in Razor Ridge.
When first meeting Björn, he tells Dixie and Kiddy Kong that his chairlifts are non-operational and that he cannot repair them because he lent his No.6 wrench to Barter, who never returned it to him. When the Kongs recover the wrench, they can provide it to Björn. He then repairs his chairlifts, thus allowing the Kongs to move up to the secret cave, "Clifftop Cache".
Like Benny, Björn's name was also derived from a member of the Swedish pop group ABBA, Björn Ulvaeus. Björn is also a Swedish and Icelandic term for a bear as well as a common male name in both languages.
