Flurl (known as Ressar in the European GameCube version) is a Jungle Buddy of Donkey Kong in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, who first appears in Jungle Deeps. Flurl is a large red squirrel with a giant tail, and its name is a combination of the words float and squirrel. While usually only one can be seen at a time, two appear on-screen at one point in Ninjape Rally.

Flurl occasionally appears sleeping in a tree. If Donkey Kong grabs Flurl's tail, he can use Flurl as parachute and glide through the air. This allows Donkey Kong to collect some Beats while airborne and access normally unreachable areas.
