Effect Removes status conditions such as burst tires

The Delicious Banana is one of Donkey Kong's special items in Mario Kart Arcade GP and Mario Kart Arcade GP 2. It is a recovery item that removes all bad conditions from the user's kart, such as square tires, burst tires, or Thunder Cloud. In addition, the Delicious Banana provides a shield for approximately half a second upon being used. With good timing, this can be used to block incoming items or be immune to the explosion of a Time Bomb.

In Mario Kart Arcade GP, a variant of the Delicious Banana known as the Delicious Banana+ can be unlocked. This variant greatly increases the duration of the shield the item provides.
