Xananab is an alien character shaped like a peeled banana who makes their first appearance in the game DK: Jungle Climber. They aid the Kongs during the events of the game.


In DK: Jungle Climber, Xananab meets Donkey, Diddy and Cranky Kong after they accidentally destroy the alien's Banana Spaceship during a boss battle in the Sun Sun Island stage Cliffy Peak. The alien thought they were the Kremlings that stole the Crystal Bananas and wormhole technology. After the spaceship is destroyed, Xananab meets the Kongs, and reveals to be an alien from the Planet Plantaen. He and the primates agree in joining forces in order to stop King K. Rool and his minions from using the power of the Crystal Bananas to conquer the universe.

Throughout the game, Xananab helps Donkey Kong as a background character by activating Spyrowarps, special wormhole machines, so the hero can travel to different dimensions inside levels. They also provide tips to aid Donkey Kong during the game.
