Combo Fairies are a special kind of fairy, having nearly the same physical appearance as the fairies in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, except slightly smaller. They are a bright, round light that comes in multiple colors and has wings attached. Combo Fairies make their only appearance in the game Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. Whenever Donkey Kong performs a combo (a special kind of action, such as swinging from a vine or getting a Jungle Buddy), a Combo Fairy appears and circles around Donkey Kong until he lands on the ground. Upon landing, all Combo Fairies he has collected turn into beats. Donkey Kong, however, cannot get more than one fairy for the same action—he only gets a new fairy for an action he has not performed before. There is no limit to how many fairies can circle around Donkey Kong in the game, though the current known maximum is eighteen. Upon reaching ten combos, the fairies begin to sparkle, and the sound effect that plays when Donkey Kong obtains a combo stops playing.

Ways to obtain Combos[edit]

Throughout the game, there are several ways to obtain a combo, which, as aforementioned, cause a Combo Fairy to appear. They include:

  • Swinging from a vine.
  • Helibirds.
  • Flurl.
  • Wall jumping.
  • Bubble Shrubs.
  • Leaping off a pop-up flower.
  • Jumping off an orange fairy bubble.
  • Helper Monkeys.
  • Leaping off a vine trampoline.
  • Ground pounding/diving.
  • Edge hop.
  • Leaping off a chain of Helper Monkeys.
  • Entering and exiting a Dragon Slot.
  • Flinging off a Banandelion.
  • Firing out of a plant similar to a Bubble Shrub.
  • Back-flipping.
  • Sliding down and jumping off a rope.
