Blue is one of the Brothers Bears in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. He lives in a hut that is the first location of Cotton-Top Cove, Blue's Beach Hut. His main characteristic is how he often feels discouraged and sad.


Blue's name is derived from the word "blue". In his case, this refers to two things: Blue constantly "has the blues" and his fur color is blue. The former attribute is reflected in the original version from a slowed-down, downtrodden variant of the Brothers Bear theme playing as background music in his location.

His sadness stems from how 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. He cannot deliver it because they live too far away from each other, so he requests Dixie and Kiddy Kong to do it instead.

When the Kongs re-enter Blue's Beach Hut with the Present, Blue cheers up and happily unwraps it (and the background music speeds up and becomes more lively in the original version). The Present contains a Bowling Ball, which Blue claims to have no use for. He gives the item to the Kongs and allows them to keep it.

  • Upon close inspection, the player can see a calendar in his beach hut, with the date of his alleged birthday marked, January 16th. This was removed from his redesigned location in the Game Boy Advance remake.
  • In the Game Boy Advance remake, like the other Brothers Bear locations, Blue's Beach Hut was also redesigned. The whole interior is decorated with party favors, including balloons, cards, birthday cake, and presents. His place also received a bookshelf and fireplace. The liveliness of the redesigned area directly contrasts with his sadness.
