The Banana Splitter is a power-up in Despicable Me: Minion Rush. Once the item is ran into, each Banana is counted double when collected, somewhat giving players a demo of what purchasing the doubler for Bananas, Golden Banana, with real money is like.
It can be unlocked with 1,500 bananas, and the duration of it lasts for 10 seconds at the initial level.
The icon of banana splitter looks like a bowl with a banana topped with chocolate and vanilla ice cream and a cherry on it (basically it is a banana split). Once requested by Dr. Nefario, the Banana Splitter can be purchased using Bananas. After doing so, it will appear randomly during runs.
Once the item is ran into, each Banana is worth double when collected, somewhat giving players a demo of what purchasing the doubler for Bananas with real money is like.
This item can upgraded to make it last longer. The Banana Splitter, along with the Banana Vacuum is one of the few items to appear in secret areas/special areas of the game's locations. They appear notably in the secret area in Downtown, a big slide in Minion Beach, and a special PX-Lab in The Arctic Base.
Because the Banana Splitter doubles the amount of Bananas collected, it is among the quickest ways to earn a lot of Bananas during runs, along with the Fluffy Unicorn and Banana Vacuum. The Banana Splitter, Banana Vacuum, Freeze Ray, Minion Shield, Minion Launcher and PX-41 are one of the few items in the game that do not allow the player to tilt the screen to use.
