Kongo Bongo Gone Wrongo
Cranky uses the nectar of the rare Tin Banana Tu, a purple species of banana with an extremely foul taste, to create a vaccine and plans to vaccinate his fellow Kongs. Diddy Kong schemes his way out of receiving the vaccine using two coconuts, but is later bitten by Polly Roger, which infects him; afterwards, Diddy spreads the disease to Krusha, who then spreads it to King K. Rool, both via sneezing. Fortunately, thanks to Cranky and Donkey Kong, the three victims are cured before the disease completes its final stages.
From what little is known and stated about the disease, birds such as Tropical Toucans are potential carriers; it can be transmitted through their bites and pecks, as well as via sneezing. Its only known cure is the nectar of the rare Tin Banana Tu. A healthy diet can also prevent infection - General Klump explains that he avoided catching it by eating at least one-hundred garlic cloves every day.

Being infected with the disease is, in Candy's words, "like having the flu, times one hundred and two".
