After finding the pearls, Tiny can shrink her size and enter the Mermaid's Throne Room to return the pearls and to be rewarded a Golden Banana.
The Mermaid reappears in a later Rare game, Banjo Tooie. There, four statues of her are scattered around the sunken city of Atlantis. Placing eggs in the lettered bases (labeled sigma (Σ), delta (Δ), pi (π) and omega (Ω) in a reference to the Greek-style architecture of the area) that they carry opens the access of the area's main temple.
- After Tiny Kong returns all the pearls to the Mermaid, she informs Tiny Kong that she is concerned they may get stolen again, however this is unlikely.
