Banana Banquet is the final level of New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. The level appears in the moon-shaped barrel, and is unlocked by obtaining all the other crests. The kingdom has no bosses. The icon used on the Kingdom select screen for this level is the same one used for the Opening Ceremony stage in the original release, as the player cannot revisit that stage after completing it in the Wii port.
The level itself looks much like the ending ceremony after defeating Cactus King and Ghastly King. It is one of the shortest levels in the game, being only a straight path with practically no obstacles. The course starts with several Banana Bunches floating in mid-air, some in bubbles, with many Helper Monkeys playing instruments in the foreground, and some trapped in bubbles. Several Helper Monkeys and Ninjapes also follow DK, and the Helper Monkeys that are freed will also follow him. A combo can be instantly earned by using the flowers that can be sprouted by using the Sound Wave Attack and collecting the bananas in mid-air. Near the end of the stage is a Helper Monkey that throws Donkey Kong back to the beginning of the stage, collecting several beats in the process.
At the end of the stage, which has a gigantic banana bunch at the very end, are Hoofer, four Helibirds of differing colors, and Flurl, none of which can be used. Two groups of four banana bunches in bubbles are found here, and the ground can be slammed on both sides of the bunch to earn individual beats. DK can then bite into the banana bunch, and the level ends.
