Flapper the Parrot is an Animal Buddy in DKC2 and DKC3. He is a bluish-purple parrot.
He cannot spit nuts like his green counterpart Squawks, but as a trade-off he is able to lift barrels and drop them on enemies below him. Another difference between the two is that in levels where he is considered a rideable Animal Buddy, he cannot ascend. Instead, having him flap his wings will only slow down his descent.
