Brash in the game Donkey Kong Country 3

Brash (ブラッシュ, Burasshu in Japan) is a member of the Brothers Bear residing in the world Kremwood Forest of the Northern Kremisphere in the game Donkey Kong Country 3. Brash, as his name implies, is a very cocky, arrogant, and easily-angered stereotypical athlete who thinks of himself of the "the best there is and ever will be". He lives in a cabin in the Super Family Computer/Super Nintendo Entertainment System version of the game and a sports stadium in the Game Boy Advance version.


Brash lives in the northwestern area of Kremwood Forest, more than halfway through the world. In a previous stage, Riverside Race, Brash holds a record for clearing the location in one minute, fifteen seconds. If Dixie and Kiddy Kong manage to beat his record and pay Brash a visit, he will throw a tantrum, causing a loose log to fall off a tree and land in the river, leading to a secret Banana Bird Cave, Arich's Hoard. Other than reaching the Cave, Brash has no other role in the game. If the Kongs revisit him any time after beating him, he will get angry and kick them out.


First meeting[]

  • "Hey, it's the banana brained Kongs! What do you think you're doing coming into Brash's cabin without asking?
    See that river bank race? I ran that in 01:15:00. You couldn't do it in double that time."

Subsequent meetings[]

  • "Call that a decent time on the riverbank? I've given people bigger head-starts than that - and still won!"
  • "Hey Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, did you stop for a picnic on the river bank or did you just get lost?"
  • "Did you get hurt on the river bank level, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs? That must be why you were sssoooo slowwwww!"
  • "Went for a walk on the river bank level did you? That would explain your pitifully weak time on it."


  • "Just look at all these fine trophies. The only way you'd ever win one is if they gave them away in cereal packets"
  • "Goodness me! If I looked like you, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, I'd walk backwards just to look a bit more presentable"
  • "Where are your manners? I'm sure I didn't see you wipe your feet on my 'Unwelcome' mat."
  • "Hey did you happen to join Wrinkly's ramblers on their monthly trundle along the river bank? I reckon so!"


  • "Wwwhhhaatt?! Yooouuu can't have beaten my time! I've held that record for the last two years running!
    Yoooou've made me ssssooooo angry! I could............"
  • "I'll get my title back from you, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, just you wait!"
  • "Don't get too cocky, I've demanded a steward's inquiry!"
  • "If you think I'm talking to you, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs, you can forget it. I don't mind you winning, but showing off is just un-cool!!"
  • "GO ON - GET OUT NOW!"
  • "GO ON NOW - GET OUT!"





  • The word Brash describes his personality as well as be a pun the word "dash" referencing his speed and athletic attitude.
  • Brash's official artwork shows his shirt saying "Rarebare", a pun on "bear" and the company Rareware, the developer of the game Donkey Kong Country 3.
  • Every time Brash repeatedly started pounding the counter in a tantrum way, he uses the same sound effect for most of the Kremling enemies' grunting when they are harmed in the games of the original Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land trilogies.[1]
  • In the original SFC/SNES version of the game Donkey Kong Country 3, Brash is seen wearing a white tank top in the game, even though his official artwork depicts him in a purple unitard. His sprite redesign in the GBA version depicts him with a white tank top and purple shorts.
  • Even though he is mean-spirited, Brash is not completely evil. In fact, he cares for the Kongs and his fellow Brothers Bear, and is actually more livid to the Kremlings, KAOS and Baron K. Roolenstein than to Dixie and Kiddy.
