The Brothers Bear Items are items that the Brothers Bear group gives Dixie and Kiddy Kong in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Below are the said items.
The Bowling Ball is Blue's gift from Blizzard Bear, found when delivering Blizzard's Present to Blue. Blue, finding no need for it, gives it to Dixie and Kiddy Kong. This item is later used in the world Mekanos for Bazooka's cannon ammo to reach the Banana Bird Cave, Sky High Secret.
Box of Chocolates
A Box of Chocolates is found only in Donkey Kong Country 3's Game Boy Advance version. This item has been added to Bazaar's General Store, at the cost of twenty Bear Coins. The Box of Chocolates is not eatable, but is instead necessary to trade to Bachelor, alongside the Rose for a Banana Bird.
Flupperius Petallus Pongus
A Flupperius Petallus Pongus is a rare type of flower in Donkey Kong Country 3. It has different roles depending on which version of the game.
- SNES version: Bramble is in search of a Flupperius so he can study the rare flower. He has been trying to grow one himself but cannot due to the pollution of Mekanos hurting his flower's life. When Dixie and Kiddy Kong defeat KAOS in Mekanos, Bramble will say that the plant life nearby has become healthier but his Flupperius is still in the process of growing. However, by the time the Kongs complete the world Razor Ridge, the flower will be in bloom and can be picked up by walking to the dead-end near Bramble's cabin on the overworld map. It can then be traded to him for a Banana Bird.
- GBA version: in this version of Donkey Kong Country 3, the flower's role has been tweaked. Instead of having to beat Mekanos and Razor Ridge worlds to obtain it, the flower is actually obtained pretty early in the game, by talking to Bachelor. He will give the flower to the Kongs and explain he needs a Rose instead for his date. Bramble will still gladly accept the Rose, but will instead give Dixie and Kiddy Kong the Rose Bachelor seeks. Bramble is still in possession of the Banana Bird however, and will give it to the heroes once Mekanos is beaten.
The Mirror is an item that has served two different purposes:
- The mirror is bought from Bazaar's General Store for an expensive fifty Bear Coins. According to Bazaar himself the mirror belonged to Cranky Kong's great-grandfather. When purchased, it can be used at Barter's Swap Shop in exchange for a No. 6 Wrench, which is used for Björn's broken chairlifts in the Razor Ridge world.
- The mirror can be bought back from Barter for ten Bear Coins. It has a second use, for when the Kongs meet Baffle. He can use the mirror to decode a secret message of how to unlock a Banana Bird Cave in the KAOS Kore world. This is an optional use however because the cave can be found with or without decoding the message. It can later be bought back again for ten Bear Coins.
No. 6 Wrench
A No. 6 Wrench is an item that is required to enter a Banana Bird Cave in Donkey Kong Country 3. Dixie and Kiddy Kong can obtain this item by going to Barter's Swap Shop and trading a Mirror for the Wrench. This item is needed for Björn's broken chairlift in the Razor Ridge world. By giving him the wrench, he can fix the chairlift and the Kongs can access the Banana Bird Cave on the other side.
The Patch is found at the end of the Kremwood Forest world, obtained by beating the boss, Arich, for the first time. By returning to Funky's Rentals with the patch, Funky Kong will explain that the patch was "just what he needed" to build the Hover Craft. The patch was apparently used to fix a hole in the hover craft.
The resent is given to Dixie and Kiddy Kong by Blizzard when they visit him for the first time. Blizzard gives them the present because he is busy climbing the mountains of K3 and can not attend Blue's birthday party, and entrusts them to deliver the present for him.
In the Cotton-Top Cove world, the present is given to Blue and revealed to be a Bowling Ball.
The rose is present only in the GBA version of Donkey Kong Country 3. The Rose is obtained by trading a Flupperius Petallus Pongus to Bramble. Bachelor gives Dixie and Kiddy Kong the Flupperius in hopes they can use it. The rose, when given to Bachelor in conjunction with the Box of Chocolates, will earn the heroes one Banana Bird, key for finishing the game.
The Shell is bought at Bazaar's General Store for five Bear Coins. The shell was apparently found at the bottom of the Lake Orangatanga. It is later traded to Barnacle to add to his collection for a Banana Bird, though otherwise has no use.
Skis are two key items found at the end of Cotton-Top Cove and Mekanos worlds by defeating Squirt and KAOS, respectively. Once the two items are found, Funky Kong can make the Turbo Ski vehicle in Funky's Rentals. The vehicle is key for reaching areas above waterfalls that the Hover Craft can not reach, such as K3 or Pacifica (present only in the Game Boy Advance version).
