The Banana Gun (バナナガン, Banana Gun) is an item introduced in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


The Banana Gun is a one-use ranged item that appears as a simple banana. Contrary to its appearance, it fires a single banana fruit "bullet" that travels forward slowly and explodes with contact with anything, dealing high knockback alongside a comical banana-filled explosion. Once its single round of ammo is used, throwing it causes it to turn into a Banana Peel.


Equipping the Piantas, Swanky Kong or Ukiki Support Spirits will give the player a Banana Gun at a start of a match.

  • A similar weapon is used by the Eggplant Wizard in the animated series Captain N: The Game Master. The gun is held and fired in an identical fashion; however, when struck by the banana 'bullet' the target is trapped in a giant banana peel as opposed to exploding.
  • A similar weapon is used by Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker. It cannot fire a banana 'bullet' however.
