Tally Me Banana is a Donkey Kong minigame in Mario Party 6. Its name is taken from a line in "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)" by Harry Belafonte. This minigame appears to take place in a tropical area of some kind. The Blooper from the minigame Blooper Scooper can be seen in the top left corner of the screen.


The introduction shows Donkey Kong jumping on a barrel and collecting a banana.


Players jump on the barrels scattered throughout the pool to collect as many bananas as possible. If the player misses a barrel and lands in the water, they are out for the remainder of the game. Most barrels contain a single banana, though some contain Banana Bunches, which give the player five bananas. Players can jump on opponents who have fallen into the water to reach more barrels.


  • Control Stick – Move
