Music Pads are items that appear in Donkey Kong 64. They contain five different logos depending on the Kong. The logos can be Bongos, Electric Guitar, Saxophone, Trombone, or a Triangle. These items help the Kongs with their instruments in certain parts of the game. When you play the correct instruments on one of these, it wil cause something to happen, usually leading to a golden banana. Also, it won't decrease any your musical energy, and will kill any enemies within a fairly large radius.
- If you stand on the rim of a pad, or there's a boulder on it, it will kill all enemies in range, but won't decrease your musical energy. This is mainly for things like Koshas, as it is very annoying to have to use your music or a coconut crystal every time you want to kill them.
