Cranky Kong's Shop is a shop owned by Cranky Kong in Donkey Kong Country Returns and its Nintendo 3DS remake Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. Here the player can buy numerous items to aid them throughout levels, such as Extra Life Balloons, Banana Juice, Heart Boosts, a Map Key, and even Squawks the Parrot.

The shop was replaced by Funky's Fly 'n' Buy in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze because Cranky moved on to being a playable character in the game.

Manual description[edit]

Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii)
"Donkey Kong's white bearded, grouchy grandfather Cranky Kong has set up shop in each world to help Donkey Kong in his quest. Cranky Kong can ramble on about anything, but don't ignore anything he has to say, as his ramblings provide useful information to those who pay careful attention."

Item description and price[edit]


  • The Banana Juice potion could be an allusion to Donkey Kong 64, where Cranky was a scientist who crafted potions for the player.
  • Among Cranky's rants are also numerous hints that allude to the Golden Temple.
