A Banana is the most common item in the Donkey Kong series, appearing in almost every one. They look exactly like their real-world equivalent, with a yellow peel and a soft inside. Collecting 100 of these gives a Kong an extra life, as stated in the Donkey Kong Country manual: "Grab one hundred of these to earn an extra life. A banana bunch is worth ten bananas". There are also many other forms of Bananas, like Banana Bunches, worth ten Bananas, and Banana Birds. In Donkey Kong 64, bananas could only be collected by Kongs whose color matched.
