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.[1] When first meeting Dixie and Kiddy Kong, Björn tells them that his chairlifts are non-operational and that he cannot repair them because he lent his No.6 wrench to Barter. When the Kongs recover the wrench, they can give it to Björn, allowing him to repair the chairlifts and for the Kongs to move up to the secret cave, "Clifftop Cache". Like Björn's name was derived from a member of the Swedish pop group ABBA, Björn Ulvaeus, like Benny. Björn is also a Swedish and Icelandic term for a bear and a common male name in both languages.

In a preview showcasing the Brothers Bear, Björn and Benny are shown talking in unison with a German accent,[2] though this does not happen in the game.
