Crystal Coconut is the treasure of Kongo Bongo Island guarded by Donkey and Diddy Kong in the Donkey Kong Country animated series. King K. Rool tries to steal it in almost every episode of the series. The item would later appear in some Donkey Kong series games.

The Crystal Coconut as seen in the episode "Kong for a Day" of the Donkey Kong Country animated series.

The Crystal Coconut first appeared in the Donkey Kong Country animated series. Its history on the series was that it was stolen from an unknown source by the ancestor of one of the show's main antagonists, Kaptain Skurvy. Quint Skurvy, Skurvy's great-great-great-grandfather, hid the Crystal Coconut on Kongo Bongo island, specifically in the eye of the mystical idol Inka Dinka Doo. However, after many years, the coconut pops out of its hiding place and is found by Donkey Kong, who is then proclaimed the future ruler of Kongo Bongo island. The show's main antagonists King K. Rool and the aforementioned Kaptain Skurvy constantly try to steal the coconut from the Kongs. The former wants to use it to take over Kongo Bongo island, and the latter believes it is his birthright as his ancestor stole the coconut, and seems to want to use it to "rule the seven seas" as well.

The Crystal Coconut's powers in the animated series range widely. It is known to be able to heal wounds, grant wishes, see through the future, and occasionally characters can look into it (like a crystal ball) and see whatever they wish to. Occasionally the coconut projects images on its own, often warning the Kongs when Kaptain Skurvy and his crew are returning to Kong Bongo island. Cranky Kong seems to be able to use the coconut to teleport (in an astral form) to different places, though he must always return to where the Crystal Coconut is, even if it has been removed. For the duration of the animated series, the Crystal Coconut is kept in Cranky Kong's Cabin, inside a globe.
