Glimmer is an angler fish who makes his only appearance in the second stage of Krem Quay, Glimmer's Galleon on Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Glimmer has a lantern on his stalk above his head to help Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong reach the end of the stage. Though Glimmer appears on the boxart of Donkey Kong Land 2, he doesn't make an appearance in the game.
