The South Park Game Wiki

The Dire Bear is an enemy found only in Canada. They are like regular bears, but dire.


The Dire Bear only has one role in the story in the O Canada quest where three of them killed a Canadian and the New Kid is tasked with slaying it after speaking to the Earl of Winnipeg. Outside of that, they are random encounters on the world map of Canada.
