The Scrapbook is an item key to finishing Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest''s Gameboy Advance ports. The scrapbook consists of Photographs, which are used to show the characters and (sometimes) locations of the game.
In Donkey Kong Country, the scrapbook had enemies as well as allies. Donkey Kong Country also had images of a few CG-rendered levels and mini-games (i.e. Funky's Fishing). Photographs are represented with small blue cameras, and the Kong must simply walk into it, or jump on an enemy with one, to obtain it. After, the player can check the scrapbook to see the new addition. Photographs can also be obtained by doing mini-games and other activities.
In its sequel, Donkey Kong Country 2, the scrapbook was given to the Kongs by Wrinkly Kong. It functioned similarly to Donkey Kong Country, but with one major difference; for every page filled in full, the Kongs can earn a DK Coin for finishing it. As such, the scrapbook is key to winning Cranky's Video Game Heroes.
Oddly, it did not return in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!'s Game Boy Advance port, nor any game afterwards.
