Bananas are the favorite food of monkeys. They also appear as in-game items which add points and contribute to extra lives. Bananas are generally spread throughout stages, often appearing in a place that requires additional effort to get to (the more bananas, the more effort), and occasionally in the direct path of the player.
Super Monkey Ball 1, 2 and DeluxeEdit
In Super Monkey Ball 1, 2 and Deluxe, regular bananas are worth 100 points, while banana bunches are worth 1000 (and therefore also 10 regular bananas). To get an extra life, you need to collect 100 bananas.
An interesting thing to note is that in Super Monkey Ball 1 and 2, the bananas have a Dole sticker on them, while in Deluxe they are removed.
