Enguarde the Swordfish is a swordfish-like Animal Buddy appearing in the Donkey Kong series. He is a big help as he defeats underwater enemies with his sharp bill. He also swims slower on land.


Donkey Kong Country

Enguarde first appears in Donkey Kong Country as an underwater ally to Donkey and Diddy. He can do all the attacks stated above.

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest/Land 2

Enguarde reappears in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2 acting the same, but now possessing a new attack to charge really fast to defeat multiple enemies at once.

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!/Land III

Enguarde reappears in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III acting the same. Though in Donkey Kong Land III, Enguarde lacks the ability to do his Supercharge attack.

Donkey Kong 64

Enguarde reappears again in Donkey Kong 64. He appears in Gloomy Galleon and only Lanky can reach him by transforming into him. He acts the same as usual though.

Donkey Kong Racing

Enguarde was to appear in Donkey Kong Racing as a rideable creature as shown in the trailer. Diddy can be seen riding the regular one and Tiny can be seen riding a purple version. It is unknown if the purple was to be a subspecies such as Quawks being one of Squawks or a different coloration.

Diddy Kong Pilot

In the 2003 build of Diddy Kong Pilot, Enguarde appears as a cameo in Shore Strife and in the Cranky Kong Pilot version of the title screen both having it splashing in and out of the water.



  • Enguarde's name is a parody of en-garde, a French phrase used in Fencing.
