Blue in the game Donkey Kong Country 3

Blue (ブルー, Burū in Japan) is one of the Brothers Bear found in the game Donkey Kong Country 3. He lives in his Beach Hut in the world Cotton-Top Cove/Cotton Top Cove of the Northern Kremisphere.


Blue is a bear with blue fur and white belly fur whose birthday was forgotten by the rest of the Brothers Bear, except for Blizzard, thus making Blue feel lonely. His name is a take on his color and how he feels blue. This is correct, as Blue gets his name from the titular color, blue. In Blue's case, it has two meanings: 1. His fur color is blue, yet the shade varies in the SNES and GBA versions. In the latter version, all of the white fur in Blue's belly is colored blue. And 2. Blue constantly "has the blues", as his main characteristic is feeling discouraged and sad. Uniquely, to reflect Blue's state of mind, the Brothers Bear theme is slowed down in his hut, only speeding up when he is given the present.

When Dixie and Kiddy Kong get to see him, he states that he is upset and sad that everyone forgot about his birthday and no one came. However, this is untrue, as Blizzard actually remembered and got him a Present, though he could not make it due to how far away he was at the time. The Kongs can deliver Blizzard's Present once they speak with Blue after obtaining the present from Blizzard.

The present is revealed to be a Bowling Ball. After this, his theme will change from Brothers Bear Blues to the normal Brothers Bear theme from then on, meaning he is happy again. Blue finds no need for the gift, so he lends it to Dixie and Kiddy. The Bowling Ball is later used as ammo for Bazooka's cannon.

When the Kongs return to his place, Blue stays happy due to Dixie and Kiddy's kindness.


First meeting[]

  • "H-h-hello there, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, how are you? My name's Blue, p-p-pleased to meet you."


  • "You wouldn't have brought... Oh, I can see you haven't. Never mind."
  • "I-I'm afraid you're a little early for the party, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs. That's if anybody bothers to come at all."
  • "I get lots of post you know, but it's all bills - not a single card."
  • "What's that red circle on the calendar? Oh... sigh... It's nothing of importance."

Received the Present[]

  • "A present... for me? Oh! Thank you Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, you've really made my day! Let's have a look inside!
    Oh it's a bowling ball. Well it's far too heavy for me. I know - why don't you have it, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs?


  • "Green jelly and ice cream, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs? Enjoy - there's plenty more where that came from."
  • "Hi, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, stick around if you like and feel free to have some tea and cake!"
  • "Best of luck in your quest, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs!"
  • "Fancy a game of "Pass the Parcel"?"



  • Blue's birthday is January 16. Interestingly, according to the American English and British English calendars, along with all modern calendars, the day of the week is the same as 1992, 2002 and so on, in which January, the aforementioned month, began on a Tuesday. This is seen on Blue's calendar in the SNES version of DKC3. The calendar is removed in the Game Boy Advance remaster.
  • Blue has a harmonica in the official artwork of the SNES port of DKC3 and Dixie Kong's Photo Album, though it's not seen nor Blue uses it in-game. The harmonica is completely absent in the Game Boy Advance remaster.
    • In addition, Blue's harmonica is a reflection of his sadness.
  • Blue is the second one of the five characters in the Donkey Kong series to have tragic moments. The third, fourth and fifth are K. Lumsy, the Banana Fairy Queen and the Mermaid whom all appeared in the game Donkey Kong 64 for Nintendo 64.
    • In addition, the first character to have tragic moments is none other than Klubba from Donkey Kong Country 2, due to his quote "Kap'n K. Rool treats us rotten! I hope yer scupper his plans!" being obvious to King K. Rool's cruelty to the Kremlings and non-Kremling affiliates.
  • The music playing in Blue's Beach Hut, which is Brothers Bear Blues, is a slowed-down and downtrodden version of the regular Brothers Bear theme.
    • When bringing him the gift from Blizzard, the theme temporarily speeds up to a higher speed than the regular Brothers Bear theme. Afterwards, the theme will be the regular Brothers Bear music.
  • In the Game Boy Advance remaster of DKC3, Blue's sprite has a drastic redesign that is surprisingly faithful to Blue's appearance as with all the Brothers Bear. Blue's belly is all blue. His ears are a brass sap color. His muzzle is yellow, and his black nose is smaller. The hue of Blue's fur is a realistic true blue. His claws are long and sharp are are colored metallic sap brass gold, and he is wearing a red-and-white party hat.
