Banana Fairies are characters in the Donkey Kong franchise video games. They are small, yellow fairies that live in the Banana Fairy Kingdom under the rule of their Banana Fairy Princess. They first appear in Donkey Kong 64.
In their debut appearance, the Banana Fairies are scared off by the Kremlings when K. Rool's Mobile Island Fortress crashed into a rock. Once Tiny Kong meets their princess, she and all of the other Kongs are given a special camera and film to help recollect the scattered fairies. When a fairy is taken in a picture, it returns back to Banana Fairy Island, replenishes the Kongs' item supply, and increments the maximum limit of items by one, such as Crystal Coconuts. There are twenty Banana Fairies in the game. When the Kongs capture all of them, the Banana Fairy Princess gives a Golden Banana with a Rare Ltd. logo on it to Tiny. Two fairies are found in every level of the game, except DK Isles which has four.
After a long absence from the Donkey Kong series, the fairies return in Donkey Kong Barrel Blast. They are items that appear in red balloons, and they fly around the user for a short time. During this time, the fairy will attract Bananas to them, making the Banana Fairy a type of Banana magnet. It can also attract Item Balloons, but they cannot attract Golden Bananas. If they are used by a Kong, their effect will last a little longer.
