The Chopperbird is a man from a foreign country[1] disguised as an evil equivalent of the Helibird 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 only appears as a rival in the first level of the Lemon Kingdom, "Chopperbird Race". In this level, Donkey Kong must use the various Helibirds stationed throughout the level to beat Chopperbird in a race. He does not have to beat him, but if he does, he gets 300 Beats. If Chopperbird loses the race, he starts flying around erratically, in frustration.

The Chopperbird is seen in the credits.
