Bramble is a botanist and a member of the Brothers Bear in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! He dwells in a bungalow in the Northern Kremisphere world map, near Cotton Top Cove, where he studies rare species of flowers. Bramble is named after the bramble plant, which is a type of rose plant.
Bramble, like many other Brothers Bear, is in possession of a Banana Bird, whose abilities he has finished studying and is willing to part with. Dixie or Kiddy Kong can obtain the Banana Bird by trading the Flupperius Petallus Pongus with Bramble.
Bramble claims to have once been in Mekanos but moved out from the location when it became overrun by factories and industrial pollution. If the Kongs visit Bramble prior to completing Mekanos, he requests them to shut off the machines so that his plants can grow again. By the time that the Kongs complete Razor Ridge, a Flupperius Petallus Pongus grows on a dead-end path adjacent to his bungalow. The Kongs can pick it up and give it Bramble, who then rewards them with a Banana Bird.
In the Game Boy Advance remake of the game, Bramble's role was slightly altered, as the Kongs must obtain the Flupperius Petallus Pongus in a different way. To obtain it, the Kongs must visit Bachelor, who has no use for the flower. They can give the Flupperius Petallus Pongus to Bramble, who exchanges a rose for it rather than a Banana Bird. While Bramble still has a Banana Bird, he only gives it to the Kongs after they complete Mekanos.
