“Oh, it's only you, Tiny. Well, if you can beat me to the bottom of my slide AND collect 50 coins, I suppose you can have my Golden Banana.”
Beetle, Donkey Kong 64

The Beetle[1] is a large, green beetle in purple racing gear. She seems to be good friends with the Kongs. In Donkey Kong 64, she challenges two of the Kongs to races, rewarding each with a Golden Banana upon her defeat. In Angry Aztec, she challenges Tiny Kong to a race down a large slide, where Tiny must collect at least 50 DK Coins and finish first to win. The Beetle reappears in Crystal Caves to challenge Lanky Kong to a race under the same conditions Tiny was put under while using the OrangStand Sprint.
