Bering is first seen stealing Nita's amulet (which she needs to burn so she can marry Atka). When Nita, Kenai and Koda later arrive to get it back, Bering refuses to give up the amulet and claims it to be his before he and the other raccoons start throwing acorns at them. Kenai then convinces Bering and the raccoons to a trade, to which they accept. Whilst Kenai distracts them, Nita manages to find the amulet in a tree, but finds a baby raccoon clutching it. She manages to get the baby raccoon to let go of the amulet, but the baby starts to whimper and cries out, causing Bering and the other raccoons to notice Nita. Bering tries to get the amulet back from Nita while coaxing her, but with Kenai's help, Nita escapes the raccoons and sends them flying when she lets go of the branch she is holding onto.
At the end of the film, at Kenai and Nita's wedding, Bering throws an acorn at them to get their attention, then he and his family throw flowers over them to celebrate their wedding.
