Quawks the Parrot is a purple parrot that first appeared in Donkey Kong Country 2 as an Animal Buddy. Though similar to Squawks in appearance, Quawks lacks the ability to spit eggs.


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

Its only appearance in Donkey Kong Country 2 is in the level Parrot Chute Panic, where it acts as a parachute to slow the Kongs' descent through the level. Quawks has to avoid enemies while he's parachuting down the level, as he does not have any attacks. After reaching a certain point in the level, Quawks will release the Kongs and let them finish the level on their own.

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble![edit]

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Quawks has flying abilities similar to Squawks, and can help the Kongs by lifting up barrels with his talons and dropping them on foes or obstacles below him. He only appears in two levels, Low-G Labyrinth and Buzzer Barrage.

Donkey Kong Barrel Blast[edit]

Quawks would later appear in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast as an item, where he targets the character in 1st place and slows them down. This game marked the first time Quawks's name would be known outside of Japan.
