* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: There were more than just mammoths in North America at the time. There were also mastodons, saber-toothed cats, lions, ground sloths, camels, horses, giant beavers, and many other animals that didn't make it to today. The saber-toothed cat is actually mentioned by Kenai as his desired totem, though none appear in the movie or its sequel. Although it would be accurate not to feature iconic saber-toothed cat ''Smilodon'', as those lived more south in warmer climates.

A sequel was released in 2006, which continues the story of Kenai and Koda, and became the last DirectToVideo Disney sequel to take place after its predecessor.[[note]]Disney's next three DTV sequels included a midquel, ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound 2'', a WhatIf story, ''Disney/CinderellaIIIATwistInTime'', and a prequel, ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIII''.[[/note]] Having woken up from hibernation and ready to go to Crowberry Ridge to eat berries, Kenai gets haunted by a memory of himself and a childhood friend named Nita. Said childhood friend is shown ready to get married to a chieftain's son from another tribe, but the spirits intervene, showing that she cannot marry him because of an amulet Kenai gave her, bonding them together. To get married, Nita reunites with Kenai ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Koda too]]), and they have to make their way to Hokani Falls.

2006.







!!''Brother Bear 2'' provides examples of:
* AngerBornOfWorry: Kenai scolds Koda for running off to a dangerous mountain. Koda replies that he was just scared that Kenai would abandon him for Nita, calming Kenai down as he reassures him.
* ChildhoodFriend: Kenai and Nita.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Kenai and Nita again.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Denahi is nowhere to be seen in this movie. He's not even present [[spoiler:at Kenai and Nita's wedding]].
* DeathGlare: Kenai gives an intense one to the hunters who pierced his shoulder with their spears.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Not to a villain, but to Kenai, who gets shoved off a cliff by Atka.
* DisposableFiancee: Atka doesn't have any lines, let alone a personality. The only thing we really see about him is that he gets a little too into his fight with Kenai, and even that was a misunderstanding with him having no idea who he was really fighting. Nita doesn't even have any scenes with him, and her marriage to him feels like something of an excuse to get her on the road to finding Kenai.
* FromTheLatinIntroDucere:
-->'''Nita''': You are the wisest shaman.
-->'''Innoko''': Sha-''woman'', okay? "Wise" and "man" don't even belong in the same sentence.
** The gag about men being foolish may well be true in the context of the film, but the word "shaman" does not derive from the same kind of root as "postman" or "seaman", and the "-man" part of it is not a male suffix. You can have a male shaman and a female shaman, but it's just coincidence that it sounds like a male term, because it's actually gender-neutral.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** The sequel features blood for a brief moment towards the end.
** There's also this exchange:
-->'''Rutt''': I told you that was no moosette!
-->'''Tuke''': Well, she looked like one from behind!
* HeldGaze: Nita and Kenai run into each other, and after nearly trying to kill each other, gaze into each other's eyes for a long moment.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Sure, Koda was going overboard with scaring Nita with the salmon, but he has no idea that Nita was scared of water and thinks she's scared of fish.
* InterspeciesRomance: Kenai, as a bear, falls for Nita, who is human. At the end of the movie, she [[spoiler:becomes a bear so they can be together]].
* [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy I Want My Brother To Be Happy]]: Koda asks his mother to turn Kenai back into a human so he could be with Nita. He even says that he'll be fine on his own.
* PopStarComposer: [[Creator/MelissaEtheridge Melissa Etheridge]], following on from the first movie's celebrity musician.
* RascallyRaccoon: A raccoon appears in the middle of the movie and steals Nita's amulet. Turns out he brought it to his hideout, where MANY raccoons live.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: The Great Spirits temporarily grant Nita the ability to speak to animals so she can understand Kenai when she finds him. [[spoiler:It wears off right after the amulet is burned. When the spirits show up again near the end, their presence allows both Nita and her father to understand Kenai, Koda, and the moose, leading up to Nita's decision to become a bear so she can be with Kenai.]]
* SuddenlyShouting: When Koda keeps teasing Nita with the salmon and unintentionally scaring her, Kenai (at first finding this funny) sees her look uneasy and tries telling Koda to stop. But Koda doesn't listen, so Kenai ends up yelling at him, "Koda, STOP!"
* TakeAThirdOption: Realizing that Kenai loves Nita, Koda tries asking his mother to have the spirits turn him back into a human so they can be together. [[spoiler:When Kenai can't bring himself to leave Koda, Nita comes up with a third option: Have the spirits turn ''her'' into a bear, so they can all be together.]]
* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: One has to wonder if it was the Great Spirits' intentions from the start for Kenai and Nita to fall in love (or perhaps fall back in love) during their journey as well as [[spoiler:Nita's transformation at the end of the film. They did seem prepared for it]]. Spirits apparently don't just work in mysterious ways; they work in sneaky ways too.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Water?]]: Nita has a strong fear of the water ever since she almost drowned as a kid and Kenai saved her.

** If you consider the film from Denahi's POV, the bear he furiously hunted, believing it killed his brother, turning out to ''be'' his brother definitely counts.

** Pinky swears are apparently a thing Kenai and Koda partake in in the sequel, showing how their relationship has grown from the original film.

* NeverMyFault: Kenai blames the bear for Sitka's death when it was Kenai who provoked the bear in the first place, leading Sitka to sacrifice himself. While Denahi is right to blame Kenai, he denies the fact that he himself holds some of the blame. Both learn their lesson the ''extremely'' hard way-- Denahi when he believes Kenai was killed, and Kenai when he realizes [[spoiler:the bear he killed was Koda's mom]].
