Trivia

  • As ninety-nine is the unit maximum counter in both games for most of the items, If the player has ninety-nine units of any items and tries to buy more of the same at the Cranky Kong's Shop, Cranky will not sell them and scold the player for his/her greed by saying: "You already have too many of these, you greedy ape!".
  • If the player waits for while and does not make any inputs, Cranky Kong will fall sleep on his chair until the player makes another input.
  • Even if the player has Banana Coins enough to purchase multiple units of items, it is only possible to buy a single unit per time. This issue is not present in the game sequel, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, where the player can purchase multiple units of items per time in the game shop, Funky Kong's Fly 'N' Buy.
  • The items Green Balloon and Crash Guard, first appearing only in the New Mode of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, also became available to purchase at the Funky's Fly 'N' Buy shop in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Both items possess the same respective functions from Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.
