Björn is a member of the Brothers Bear who appears during the events of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! Björn operates one of the chairlifts in Razor Ridge, alongside his twin brother, Benny[1]. "Björn" is a Swedish name meaning "bear". His and Benny's names come from two members of the Swedish pop group ABBA, Björn Ulvaeus, and Benny Andersson.

While Björn's chairlifts are not a part of the main path in Razor Ridge, they do connect to a cliff in the northwest section of the area, where a Banana Bird Cave lies. Unfortunately, Björn's chairlifts are broken by a Kremling[2], and he is unable to fix them, for he lost his No. 6 Wrench. If Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong do some searching, they will learn that the No. 6 Wrench found its way into Barter's hands. If the Kongs manage to haggle the wrench away from Barter, they can give it to Björn, who can then use it to repair his chairlifts, giving the Kongs free access to the Banana Bird Cave.
