Glimmer is an Animal Buddy who appears in Donkey Kong Country 2. He has a lantern on his stalk to illuminate dark underwater areas for the Kongs.

He is a spiritual successor to Squawks from Donkey Kong Country, playing the same role by lighting the way in one level. A related Animal Buddy, Glower, appears in the Gloomy Galleon shipwreck areas in Donkey Kong 64.

Appearances in video games[edit]

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest[edit]

Glimmer only appears in Donkey Kong Country 2's Krem Quay level "Glimmer's Galleon". He follows Diddy and Dixie, and uses its stalk lantern to brighten the level for the Kongs.

In the Game Boy Advance version, Glimmer does assist the Kongs, although his help is redundant because the remake's color palette is bright enough for the player to venture through the level without Glimmer's aid.

Donkey Kong Land 2[edit]

Glimmer does not reappear in Donkey Kong Land 2. However, he appears on the game's cover art, lighting a sunken ship for Diddy and Dixie while a Snapjaw stalks them. His name is also in the level title Glimmer's Galleon, even though he doesn't appear in the level.

Donkey Kong Racing[edit]

Glimmer makes a background cameo in the E3 2001 trailer of Donkey Kong Racing, during the underwater scene where Tiny and Diddy race on Enguardes.

A newcomer to the ranks of the Kong clan compatriots, Glimmer will point the way through the murkiest waters around Crocodile Isle. His natural flashlight won't illuminate everything around you, but at least you'll be able to see where you're going. Finding the exit to a stage will still be up to you!

Glimmer quickly shows up to shed some light on the proceedings, but you'll still have a hard time seeing anything coming at you from behind.
