Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble[edit]

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, Ellie can pull barrels in from distance and carry them with her trunk; she can also to collect water in her trunk and shoot it at enemies. She is extremely afraid of mice and will run whenever she sees one, which is a reference to the real world where elephants have been shown to be negatively conscious of mice; the "Stampede Sprint" level in the secret world Krematoa centers around Ellie running uncontrollably after coming upon a trio of mice. Ellie is one of three Animal Friends to fight a boss; she battles the waterfall monster Squirt in Cotton-Top Cove.


Donkey Kong Land III[edit]

In Donkey Kong Land III, Ellie plays differently than in Donkey Kong Country 3; first, she has an unlimited water supply and can spray water in any level she appears in, plus she does not run from mice and she cannot drag barrels with her trunk.


Donkey Konga[edit]

In Donkey Konga, Ellie appears at the bottom of the screen, dancing to the beat of the music played.
