Glimmer the Anglerfish is an Animal Buddy who made his very first appearance in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. In this installment he is introduced in underwater levels with very low light or no light at all, no doubt concealing very treacherous traps waiting to trip up Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong. When his Animal Crate is busted open, he follows you from behind as you swim(either alone or riding Enguarde), lighting the way with the natural lantern planted at the end of the antenna on his head, similar to how Squawks lit the way for Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong by way of a miner's lantern strapped around his forehead in the Torchlight Trouble level of Donkey Kong Country. He makes his first and only appearance in the second level of the Krem Quay stage known as Glimmer's Galleon.
 Donkey Kong Racing
Like a majority of the Donkey Kong Country series' Animal Buddies, Glimmer was set to make an appearance in this canceled Wii racing title either as a ride-able animal or an in-course item. Unfortunately, this development never saw the "light" of day.
