Banana Shake is a Donkey Kong minigame found in Mario Party 6. Delfino Plaza from Super Mario Sunshine can be seen in the background, meaning the minigame is set on Isle Delfino. The minigame's name comes from the name of a drink.


Players have to shake the banana trees to gain bananas or Banana Bunches within the time limit. If a hammer pops out and falls from the tree, players have to dodge the hammer so they can continue shaking the banana tree. If a player gets hit by a hammer, that player is stunned at the moment, meaning the player cannot shake the banana tree at all.

On one of the pages in the Miracle Book, "I Wanna Banana," Peach and Luigi are playing the minigame. Peach gets the bananas while Luigi gets stunned by the hammers.


  • A Button (Repeatedly) – Shake the tree
  • B Button – Dodge hammers

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Shake the banana tree to make as many bananas fall as you can! Press B Button to avoid falling hammers."
  • Advice"Don't mistakenly dodge bananas by pressing B Button!"
