The Banana Fairies debut in Donkey Kong 64. In the game, the fairies were scared by the Kremlings and ran away. Once Tiny Kong meets their queen, the Kongs receive a special camera that allows them to take pictures of the fairies and let them go back home. When the Kongs catch a fairy, their inventory for certain items such as Coconut Crystals, increase. When all of them are collected, the player will receive a special Golden Banana with a Rare, Ltd. symbol on it.
