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. DKC 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. There are 52 photographs in this game.
In it's sequel, Donkey Kong Country 2, the scrapbook was given to the Kongs by Wrinkly Kong. It functioned similarly to DKC, 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. There are 40 photographs in this game.
Oddly, it did not return in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!'s GBA port, nor any game after.
