The Chopperbird is a man from a foreign country[1] disguised as an evil equivalent of the Helibirds in the game Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. He greatly resembles a Helibird, except for the fact that he has a different head, is colored red, and has two legs coming out of holes in its torso. The Chopperbird is encountered in Chopperbird Race only, where Donkey Kong is assisted by various Helibirds throughout the level to beat Chopperbird in a race. If Donkey Kong wins, he gets 300 Beats, and if the Chopperbird loses the race, he starts flying around erratically in frustration. The Chopperbird is seen at the very end of the credits.
