NON-CANON APPEARANCES

Squawks the Parrot is a recurring Animal Friend that appears in the Donkey Kong series. He is a small, green parrot that is a helpful ally to the Kongs, serving various roles. He has had the most appearances out of all the Animal Friends.

Squawks' function as an Animal Friend has shifted between games. In Donkey Kong Country, Squawks only appeared in the level Torchlight Trouble; unlike the other Animal Friends, he couldn't be ridden on nor did he have his own bonus levels. Instead, he carried a small lantern that would allow the Kongs to see ahead in the dark cavern. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! give him a more traditional use; he can carry the Kongs with his talons and fly freely through the air. He is also able to spit eggs from his mouth to defeat enemies such as Zingers, though he will drop the Kongs if damaged. Squawks also appears in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze; while not an Animal Friend in the traditional sense like Rambi the Rhino, he can be purchased with Banana Coins; when used, he will help the Kongs find hidden Puzzle Pieces throughout the level.

Appearances

Donkey Kong Racing

Squawks appeared as one of the flying Animal Buddies in the Wii racing game Donkey Kong Racing. Squawks was of average speed but was strong with weak stamina. Squawks' attack was to throw eggs at foes which would reduce the foes stamina. Squawks was one of the few flying Animal Buddies that carried you instead of letting you ride on their back.

Super Smash Bros. Switch

Squawks makes an appearance as a new Assist Trophy summon in Super Smash Bros. Switch, marking his first appearance in the series as something other than a trophy or sticker. Similar to what he does to assist the Kongs in the Donkey Kong Country titles, Squawks will fly around the stage and bring any items laying around to the one that summoned him; though opponents could attack Squawks to make him drop them prematurely.

Super Smash Bros. Charged

Squawks appears in Super Smash Bros. Charged, serving as Rambi's up special. When he appears, he grabs Rambi from behind with his talons and uses his wings to carry him upward. This grants them a good amount of vertical and horizontal distance, though it leaves then vulnerable.

Mario Kart: Infinity Remix

While Squawks himself doesn't appear in Mario Kart: Infinity Remix, a Bike body based off of him called the Squawks Scooter appears that can be customized with any tire and glider. It offers boosts to acceleration and drifting, though also lowers top speed and weight.
