Conker is a series of video games developed by Rare starring the epyonmous Conker the Squirrel.

The series began with the release of the Game Boy Color title Conker's Pocket Tales in 1999. Conker's Bad Fur Day, released in 2001, would see the series abandon the family-friendly tone of Pocket Tales and shift to adult-centric, mature content. The game would be re-released as part of 2005's Conker: Live & Reloaded, along with a new multiplayer mode not featured in the original release.

The series would go on haitus until the 2010s, with the release of Conker's Big Reunion, which was episodic content for Project Spark; and Young Conker, a tech demo for the Microsoft HoloLens.

The series is commonly associated with the Donkey Kong franchise, as Conker first appeared in the spin-off game Diddy Kong Racing. A game titled Conker's Quest, later known as Twelve Tales: Conker 64, was publicly unveiled at E3 1997 alongside Diddy Kong Racing and would have been the first installment of the series. The game would eventually be scrapped and reworked into what became Conker's Bad Fur Day.
