Best Friend Bear is a Care Bear who was first introduced during the 2002-2006 franchise toyline re-launch, and has since made appearances throughout the series beginning with the film Care Bears: Oopsy Does It! in 2007. She has orchid fur and her Belly badge depicts a smiling yellow star and pink heart linked by a rainbow.

Best Friend Bear believes there's someone for everyone. Not in an online dating kinda way, but more like two best buddies waiting to happen. Believing everyone should have someone, Best Friend acts as sort of a matchmaker between people or bears she thinks have something in common, and that true friendship lasts forever. Of course, when no one else is available, she's more than willing to fill the void until she can find someone suitable to take her place.
