The Banana Spaceship is the first boss in the game DK: Jungle Climber. It is a banana-shaped spaceship used by Xananab in the game. Believing it to be a giant banana, the Kongs climb the Sun Sun Island after the spaceship. They witness King K. Rool and some Kremlings going through a mysterious portal. Xananab mistakes the Kongs by the Kremlings and attacks the primates. After the heroes destroying the spaceship, Xananab comes out its debris, feels sorry for his mistake and reveals that the Kremlings stolen his Crystal Bananas. But now he cannot pursue the villains without a spaceship. The heroes offer help to track K. Rool and the Crystal Bananas after trashing the spaceship.
In the end of the game and after defeating King K. Rool in the Planet Plantaen, Xananab takes Donkey, Diddy and Cranky Kong back to their homeworld using another Banana Spaceship, while towing a tied K. Rool across the space.
