A green banana is an item from the Donkey Kong franchise. They resemble unripened bananas also known as guineos.

History[edit]

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble![edit]

Green bananas first appear in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, where they are found in certain Bonus Levels. In these Bonus Levels, the object is for Dixie and Kiddy Kong to collect fifteen of them within a time-limit. If they succeed, they are awarded with a Bonus Coin. The catch here is that only one green banana appears at a time, and they appear in random spots, forcing the Kongs into scrambling to collect them. If the Kongs are not fast enough, any uncollected green bananas disappear.

Through the use of the "MERRY" code, which gives the Bonus Levels of the game a Christmas theme, the green bananas are replaced with presents, which serve the same purpose.

Donkey Kong 64[edit]

Green bananas along with bunch variants later reappear in Donkey Kong 64 as collectibles only for Chunky Kong.

Donkey Kong Country (Game Boy Color)[edit]

Green bananas[1] in the form of Banana Bunches appear in the Game Boy Color version of Donkey Kong Country in certain levels, though they are simply a different color and serve the same function as a regular bunch, still being worth ten bananas when collected.
