Blue is one of the Brothers Bear in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. He lives inside a hut named Blue's Beach Hut, which is located at the entrance to Cotton Top Cove.
Blue's name is derived from the word "blue". In his case, this refers to two things: Blue constantly "has the blues", as his main characteristic is feeling discouraged and sad, and his fur color is blue. Uniquely, to reflect Blue's state of mind, the Brothers Bear theme is slowed down in his hut, only speeding up when he is given the present. Afterwards, the Brothers Bear theme plays normally whenever Blue is revisited. In his artwork and Dixie Kong's Photo Album picture, Blue is seen holding a harmonica, another reflection of his sadness. In the Game Boy Advance remake, Blue's sprite was redesigned, and he is seen wearing a red-striped party hat.
Blue is sad because nobody remembered his birthday. It is later revealed that Blizzard, the Brothers Bear of K3, did remember Blue's birthday and even got him a present, but is unable to deliver it because they live too far away from each other. Because of this, Blizzard requests Dixie and Kiddy Kong to deliver it on his behalf.
When Dixie and Kiddy go back to Blue's Beach Hut with the present, Blue cheers up and happily unwraps it. The present contains a bowling ball, which Blue claims to have no use for, so he allows the Kongs to keep it.
