- “You did it, you did it! You've found all of my children. At last, I can be freed from K. Rool's spell. Ready Children!! Sing along with me!”
- —Banana Queen, Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!
The Banana Queen, also known as the Queen Banana Bird or Banana Bird Queen, is a giant multi-colored Banana Bird and the mother of all Banana Birds. She only appears in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.
The Banana Queen was sealed behind an evil barrier from Baron K. Roolenstein when he invaded the Northern Kremisphere. The Banana Birds were scattered in various parts of the island, including being trapped in secret caves. The Banana Queen can only be freed with the assistance of every Banana Bird, in which there are 15 in total (20 in the Game Boy Advance remake). She is located at the very top-left part of the Northern Kremisphere hub, which can only be accessed from the Gyrocopter. In the original release, the Banana Queen is located behind some clouds. In the Game Boy Advance version, she is located on top of a mountain to the right of the secret cave, K's Cache. Her barrier can be seen from the overworld.
After Dixie and Kiddy Kong regather every Banana Bird, they must visit Wrinkly's Save Cave (or Wrinkly's Retreat in the Game Boy Advance re-release). From there, every Banana Bird flies them up to the Banana Queen's location.
When the Kongs return the Banana Birds to the Banana Queen, they all sing an enchanted song that destroys her barrier. She thanks the Kongs, and gets revenge on Baron K. Roolenstein, who stole Funky's Hover Craft and drove it around the Northern Kremisphere. A brief chase scene occurs on it, where the Banana Queen, with the Kongs on her back, chases Baron K. Roolenstein around the overworld. She eventually flies above K. Rool and drops a giant egg onto him.
