"That's what we need kong! Another Golden Banana for you!"
― Snide Snide is a major character that appears in Donkey Kong 64. He is an ally to the Kongs and can be found in his HQ in nearly every level.


Snide is an orange weasel that wears a blue lab coat.


Snide used to work for King K. Rool but didn't like his work and decided to help the Kongs instead. Snide is working on a machine that can slow down K. Rool's Blast-o-Matic. However, Snide will need blueprints from K. Rool's toughest henchmen to help slow down the machine. Each of the five Kongs (Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Tiny Kong, Lanky Kong, and Chunky Kong) have a total of 10 blueprints to find in the game and each blueprint adds 1 minute to the final level Hideout Helm. If all 50 blueprints are given to Snide, the Kongs will have 60 minutes to shut down the blaster (there will always be 10 minutes added in as extra time). In reward for bringing him blueprints, Snide will give the Kongs a Golden Banana.


  • Snide, himself, gives away a fourth of the total amount of Golden Bananas to the Kongs (as 50 is a fourth of 200).
  • Snide is the only main character in Donkey Kong 64 that isn't neither a Kong or a Kremling.
