Latest appearance Donkey Kong Country 3 (GBA remake) (2005)

Blunder is a member of the Brothers Bear in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! He is located in his booth in the Northern Kremisphere world map, to the west of Kremwood Forest. His name refers to the act of blundering, as Blunder unintentionally reveals information about the Lost World. Unlike most of the other Brothers Bears, Blunder does not have any item that he trades to the Kongs, and he simply only reveals information regarding the Lost World, Krematoa.

Appearance[edit]

Blunder has the appearance of an ordinary, brown-furred Brothers Bear; he only wears a red bow attached to a yellow necklace (or a red necklace in the Dixie Kong's Photo Album photograph). In the Game Boy Advance port, Blunder was redesigned to have the appearance of a librarian, sporting a pair of glasses and an orange coat. As a result, his location was redesigned as a library.

History[edit]

Given that Blunder only provides hints and clues to Dixie and Kiddy Kong, they are not required to visit him on their journey. Blunder is slightly arrogant and acts as if he is smarter than the Kongs. Early in their adventure, Blunder reveals to the Kongs about the Lost World's existence but does not tell them how to find it. As the Kongs go farther into their adventure, Blunder slowly reveals more details regarding the Lost World, Krematoa. When Dixie and Kiddy defeat Baron K. Roolenstein at Kastle KAOS, the Kongs can directly receive information from Blunder on where the Lost World is, stating if they "ever think of circling the rocks".

When the Kongs reveal the Lost World (later revealed to be Krematoa), Blunder believes it to be no big deal and credits himself for helping them find it. If the Kongs manage to find Krematoa without talking to Blunder, he breaks the fourth wall, assuming that the Kongs used the Nintendo Player's Guide, which Blunder confesses to have done so himself.
