Do I need to collect 100 bananas per stage?

If i'm trying to get 101% in the game, do I only need to get the banana medal in each stage, or will I need to actually collect every banana.

This question is open with pending answers, but none have been accepted yet

To get 101%, you must collect all of every item in the game (minus the colored bananas).

No, you don't need to go through collecting all the bananas for each Kong.

You only need to get 75 of each color banana in each stage, which gets you the five banana medals for the stage. Those are what count towards the 101%.

No you do not have to get all 100 just 75 to earn you the banana medal for each Kong as they do count in the 101% completion.

No. Just 75 to get a Banana Medal. That counts toward 101% as for each kong.

No, you do not. The bananas have two purposes: first of all, they open up the final boss of each level, with an increasing quantity required for each level. Secondly, getting 75 bananas of one color in a level nets you a medal. It will never be necessary to get more than 75 for any reason whatsoever, and only 15 banana medals are needed to complete the game out of a possible 40. I have verified that not all 40 are required to complete the game 101% due to a certain glitch: if you do not get the hideout helm banana medals before completing hideout helm they become unobtainable and simply float where they appeared - you cannot grab them.

Not really requirement, unless you're 100% collection. If not, then just get 75 for Banana Medals to get Rare Coin.

It doesn't matter if you collect all of the colored bananas. to get 101% you have to get every character, clear each of the 8 bosses, and clear each world.

100 bananas is just for the extreme completionists.
If you're actually interested, and it won't hurt to be, there are plenty of great walkthroughs on their locations.
