This swordfish has appeared in numerous Donkey Kong's games, but it's purpose it's the same in all of them, he just helps the characters to ride faster on the underwater areas of the game and to beat enemies in an easy way. The games that have appearances of Enguarde the Swordfish are:
Enguarde first appears on Coral Capers, the first water level of the game, but he also makes appearances on most of the other water levels on Donkey Kong Country. The swordfish is the only way that the Kongs can attack enemies when they are exploring the underwater areas, if in any given moment they don't have this animal buddy they wont be able to attack and would be exposed to get killed. When the Kongs are mounting Enguarde the Swordfish he will take a hit for them, if this happens the fish will run away.
In this game the role of the Swordfish is still the same, but he gains some new abilities, now he is able to charge its attack so he can kill the enemies that are in his path. Also, players can get into some bonus areas with this character, this secret areas are indicated on the levels by a group of bananas.
Like on the previous games, the Swordfish is used to ease the travel on underwater areas. He kept the same abilities.
The swordfish can only be used one time on this game, and just by the character of Lanky Kong.
