Hoofer the Wildebeest is a fictional character in Nintendo's Donkey Kong franchise. He is a large black, yellow and red wildebeest and one of Donkey Kong's Animal Buddies. He is found in the ice levels of Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.
Hoofer has abilities similar to Rambi the Rhino from Donkey Kong Country and other games. This powerful wildebeest can smash through enemies and barriers with ease. At the end of a level, if Hoofer touches a pile of fruit he will perform a gigantic leap which can give Donkey Kong a certain number of beats depending on the distance travelled.
- In the British manual for Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, Hoofer is known as "Mooshin".
