The battle against the Banana Ship

The Banana Ship[1] is a vehicle in the game DK: Jungle Climber. It appears in the level Cliffy Peak. After King K. Rool and five Kritters steal five Crystal Bananas, Donkey Kong arrives and the ship mistakes him for a Kremling, and the fight begins. The ship's main attack is shooting missiles that resemble carrots. The only way to defeat it is by bashing the bottom of it, causing a large button to emerge. Donkey Kong must hit the button in order to damage the ship, which is piloted by Xananab and appears to be powered by the Crystal Banana. It was apparently built on Planet Plantaen. At the end of the game, the Kongs use a Banana Ship to go back home.
