Bounty Basses are enemies in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III. These plump, red fish are similar to Booty Birds in that they usually carry an item within them. Like many other underwater enemies, a Bounty Bass can be defeated from being stabbed by Enguarde, causing the Bounty Bass to release its item and swim away. A Bounty Bass usually contains a banana or a bear coin, although it can sometimes hold K-O-N-G Letters. In Donkey Kong Land III, none of the Bounty Basses have an item contained in them. Most Bounty Basses remain in one position, but some swim around back and forth, which all Bounty Basses do in Donkey Kong Land III. Bounty Basses have a yellow variant named Gleamin' Bream. A photograph of a Bounty Bass appears in Dixie Kong's Photo Album, in which it is classified under the category of Aquatic Attackers.

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Bounty Basses appear mostly in the underwater levels, such as Bazza's Blockade or Floodlit Fish, but appear also in the cavern stage, Pot Hole Panic. In Donkey Kong Land III, Bounty Basses are most commonly encountered in the river stages.

In the remake of Donkey Kong Country 3, the sound effects for when a Bounty Bass is defeated give the impression of it deflating like a balloon, which also applies to Booty Birds.
