"This fruit grows mainly in tropical forests of the Faron region. When it's used as an ingredient, the resulting dish will temporarily increase your attack power."
Hyrule Compendium

Mighty Bananas are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are curative items that restore Link's health by refilling one half Heart Container. Mighty Bananas can be obtained from banana trees in the tropical forests of the Faron Grasslands region. Link can also purchase them from the Fruit Shop in Kara Kara Bazaar in the Gerudo Desert region.

Link can roast them with fire or volcanic heat to prepare Roasted Mighty Bananas which restore three quarter of a heart container. Link can also throw Mighty Bananas into a pot to prepare dishes granted with a "Mighty" effect increasing attack power. They can also be cooked with "Mighty" small animals such as Bladed Rhino Beetle, and Monster parts or Guardian Parts to create Mighty Elixirs.

Members of the Yiga Clan are known to be quite fond of Mighty Bananas and as both Yiga Footsoldiers and Blademasters will drop them when defeated. Mighty Bananas can also be used to distract Yiga Blademasters while sneaking around in their lair, as well as Monk Maz Koshia during his boss fight. Along the road west of Zelo Pond in Lanayru Wetlands is a disguised Yiga Footsoldier who actually sells Mighty Bananas. He has 99 Mighty Bananas in stock for Link to purchase though reveals himself as a Yiga Clansman afterwards and attacks though Link can keep the Mighty Bananas he purchased. The Banana Merchant's Hylia appearance changes though he is located in the same location. Like all disguised Yiga Footsoldiers, the Banana merchant's name is rendered for his dialogue box as simply Traveler.

Mighty bananas provide identical benefits to Razorshrooms when cooked. They are better cooking ingredients than Mighty Thistles, but are worse than Mighty Porgy, Razorclaw Crab, and Mighty Carp.
