Parry the Parallel Bird is a fictional character in Nintendo's Donkey Kong franchise. He is is one of the Kong Family's many Animal Buddies. He only appears in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. He perfectly parallels Kiddy and Dixie Kong's moves and grabs any item he hits, making him a wonderful tool. Also, if he gets to the "NO ANIMALS" sign, the Kongs will usually get a large reward such as a Bonus Barrel.
Getting Parry to the "NO ANIMAL sign" can be difficult as contact with any enemy (except Booty Birds) will instantly defeat poor Parry. Parry is also the only non-rideable Animal Buddy to appear in more than two levels.
