Banana Punch has the same setting as the other two Donkey Kong minigames, in a jungle with a tree house and a circus tent resembling Swanky's Sideshow in the background. During gameplay, Donkey Kong hangs from a vine and swings above the characters while eating bananas.
The objective is for players to collect as many bananas within ten seconds by punching the most barrels. The barrels contain either a single banana worth one point, a large banana worth five points, or nothing. The minigame ends early if players break every barrel.
