Ellie the Elephant is an Animal Buddy introduced in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Ellie, being a stereotypical elephant, has a fear of mice such as Sneeks, and will retreat in the opposite direction every time she sees one. She has made a few appearances in the Donkey Kong series since her debut.
Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!/Land III
Ellie first appeared in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, on the very first stage of the game, Lakeside Limbo. Later, she helps the Kongs by defeating Squirt and getting through stages like Stampede Sprint. She has the abilities to spray a limited water supply in some stages and is able to collect barrels with its trunk and has a fear of mice.
In the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 3, Ellie has her sound effects borrowed from Rambi's in Donkey Kong Country, opposing the fact that she had her own in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
In Donkey Kong Land III, she is different than in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Due to the system's limitations, she isn't afraid of mice and can't drag barrels in her trunk. She also has an unlimited water supply unlike the semi-prequel where she has a limited water supply and she can spray water in all of the stages she appears in even if the area lacks water.
