"What a cracking noise! It was good to hear her again!"

Bazooka is a member of the Brothers Bear from the game Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Bazooka is an old war veteran and was a brigadier of the Kremean War some time ago, and now still lives in Bazooka's Barracks stationed in the fourth world, Mekanos.


Bazooka is upset because his old war cannon, which he calls Big Bessie, cannot fire due to the lack of ammo during the events of Donkey Kong Country 3. However, if Dixie and Kiddy Kong give him the Bowling Ball, which can be received by Blue when giving him the gift from Blizzard, it will suffice as ammo and can be used to blast to a secret Banana Bird Cave called Sky High Secret.

Bazooka is pleased when hearing Bessie fire again, and will ask the Kongs if they want to go again after revisiting him. Afterwards, the cannon can be fired anytime to reach Sky High Secret.


First meeting

  • "Morning, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs! Brigadier Bazooka here. All present and correct I see! Marvelous."

Big Bessie

  • "I fought in the Kremean War, don't you know, but I've retired from the service along with 'Big Bessie'."
  • "Who's 'Big Bessie'!? She's only the biggest and greatest cannon of all time - what a beauty!"
  • "It would be splendid to fire her one more time. But she needs some ammo to really get going."
  • "I have lots of old artillery, you know? But Bessie's my favorite - what a noise!"
  • "Have you seen 'Big Bessie'? I haven't fired her for years - no ammunition, y'see."

Firing Big Bessie

  • "What have you got there, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs? A heavy ball!? Well you never know, it might just work..."
  • "Shall we load Big Bessie up and fire her off?"

Lock and Load, sir!

  • "Okay, let's give it a go! Ready... aim............."

Hold fire, Brigadier!

  • "No? I think it was probably a shot in the dark anyway."

After firing Big Bessie

  • "Aahhhh, the memories come flooding back, you know? We were trapped on a clifftop surrounded by... oh, sorry!"
  • "What a cracking noise! It was good to hear her again! I say, would you like to have another try, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs?"
