Despicable Me Wiki
Golden Banana

The Golden Banana was an item in Minion Rush. Its sign was a golden Banana with a green "x2" sign on it. Unlike most other items, this item was not given as a goal to be purchased by Dr. Nefario. Instead, players paid $4.99 to activate it.

Once activated, every collected Banana was worth double, increasing the amount of Bananas collected during runs. The Banana Splitter was very similar to this item, as it doubles all Bananas collected once active. However, it only lasts for a limited time, unlike the Golden Banana.

The Golden Banana, along with the Golden Shield, is no longer available since the version 6.1.0 for iOS and Android platforms, but is still there for older versions of the game playable in other platforms.


  • When the Banana Splitter was used while Golden Banana is activated, the bananas counted as 4 instead of 2.
