Rambi the Rhino is a recurring “animal buddy” in the Donkey Kong Country games and was only absent in Donkey Kong Country 3. 

Rambi is invulnerable to the majority of the enemies and can charge through rocks, barrels and blocks to find hidden paths or special items. Rambo made also appearances in the Donkey Kong spinoff game including Donkey Kong Barrel Blast  (2007) or as a trophy in the Super Smash Bros. games.
