Rambi the Rhinoceros, was the very first Animal Buddy to be introduced in the Donkey Kong Country series. He is the first one to appear throughout the worlds, introducing himself in Jungle Hijinxs, the very first level of Donkey Kong Country. His special ability is to ram through walls that lead to secrets, and take down tough enemies.
Rambi is able to ram through any enemy in his path, jumping over them when they are hit. His incredible power also lets him break through doors, barrels and many other objects. He is an unstoppable creature, who's only fault is his incredible runaway speed when he gets hit.
In Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, he gains a new ability. He will now be able to charge, and run much faster. Unfortunately, he will only go in a straight path, and his speed will drop when you jump. This now allows him to break through doors, instead of him just running through walls.
