99 Lives
Go to the first level and keep playing to get as many extra lives as possible. You will get a total of about ten extra lives every time you play that level. Just repeat this to collect up to ninety-nine lives.

Go to the Manic Mincers level. When you pass the halfway point, turn into Diddy. Allow the first blue muscle guy to fall into the hole. Just when he falls in the hole, hold Back then hold B. After you hit him nine times you will start gaining lives.

In order to find the hidden bananas, go to the 1st realm. Then go to the 1st level. Once you get blasted out of Donkey Kong's house, climb back up again.(But you will be in kong's house for a live).Again you will be blasted out of Kong's house.Climb up again, (you will not enter kong's house again) then go to the edge of the house. Time your jump to get to the rooftops of the trees. (If you are diddy kong, switch to DK.) Hold DOWN and press the Y button. DK will smack his hands on the trees. (Stand on the that's not oddly colored & face the oddly-colored tree.) You will see 10 bananas pop out of the tree. (Not all the oddly-colored trees will do that.) You can also exit the level & come back again to do the pattern. To exit the level, press SELECT & START.

Continue game with no lives
After you lose all your lives and continue past the game over screen, the game restarts. As soon as it shows Grampa Kong press DOWN, Y, DOWN, DOWN,Y. This will redirect you to a secret bonus room, as soon as you get there hold START, and tap the SELECT button. This will bring you back to the game, but now the life balloon won't have a number by it. However, every time you die it's a game over. You will have to repeat the process as long as you keep dying, the pros to doing this is if you get a game over and you didn't make it to the save point, you won't lose your progress.

When you do a roll when you are at midair, at the end of the roll, you can jump. This is useful when you want a certain item in midair.

Oil Can Trick
In Kongo Jungle(1st world) go to the fist level and after you get blasted out, go back and climb up the little rocks and jump on the tree, jump over to the next tree and you should see bananas making a down sign. Jump down and you should get an oil can, carry the oil can back to the place you started and throw it against the wall, it will come your way! Jump onto it and your kong should barely balance on it. Don't do anything while on the barrel. You should kill all the enemies and the can will break into the secret area Rambi could break into!
