Banana Squids are allies in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. They are found in the underwater levels Pristine Sea and Arctic Plunge. If Donkey Kong gets close, they swim away and leave a trail of bananas behind for him to collect, similar to Banana Heli Birds. They usually swim in a large circle (which leaves a giant banana circle in the water) or keep moving in a single direction. After a while, the squid disappears and leaves some ink in its wake.
