The Brothers Bear are a family of bear brothers[1] whose homes and businesses are scattered around the Northern Kremisphere in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! Dixie and Kiddy Kong need to trade various items, mainly their coins, between the bears for rewards, most often Banana Birds. As a pun on them all being bears, all of their names begin with the letter "B".

In Donkey Kong Land III, there is only one bear who, according to the credits, is simply named Bear. Bear owns the Sheepy Shop around the Northern Kremisphere, where the Kongs can play a card game, pay two Bear Coins to hear a hint, or pay five Bear Coins to teleport to any other area in the world map.

Barnacle makes a reappearance in the Japan-exclusive Donkey Konga 3: Tabehōdai! Haru Mogitate 50 Kyoku.

In the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 3, a new bear is added to the Brothers Bear, named Bachelor. He takes the spot of Barnacle, who has been moved to the port-exclusive world Pacifica. Additionally, every Brothers Bear receives a redesign in the Game Boy Advance version.

  1. ^ "Dixie and Kiddy won't lack for help on this adventure. Besides having the Kong clan in their corner, they'll also meet up with a family of bear brothers–thirteen of them, to be exact–during their travels. Some will sell you items, some will give you advice, and still others will just give you a hard time!" - Donkey Kong Country 3 Player’s Guide, page 10.
