Banana Republic Icon In BTD5

Banana Republic is the third upgrade for Banana Farm. It produces 25 bananas instead of 13, equating to $500 per round. It appears in Bloons Tower Defense 4, Bloons TD 4 Expansion, Bloons Tower Defense 5 and Bloons Tower Defense 5 Deluxe.

AppearanceEdit

BTD4Edit

Banana Republic is the first upgrade of the Banana Farm to have a different layout. While the first and second upgrades have a hut and a field, the Banana Republic turns that hut and field into a much bigger house, kind of looking like a state house. There is another field in front of the building, with there being 4 banana trees instead of 6. There is also a small path leading from the door of the building. Last of all, there is a flag on the right side of the field, with colors of yellow, green, black, and red.

It also appears different from the lower tier-1 and tier-2 upgrades. If the player upgrades a Banana Plantation to a Banana Republic, the large crate containing the banana palms is replaced by an orange building with a banana palm at the side and a fictional Banana Republic flag. This looks different in the mobile versions of BTD5 and Bloons Monkey City, which is instead a white building with a Spanish-style roof including two banana palms in front of it.

The fictional Banana Republic flag is instead a flag of yellow, green, black, green and yellow with vertical stripes, plus a banana bunch in the center of the flag.

StrategyEdit

Being the predecessor to the most powerful Banana Farm upgrade (at least in Path 1), a Banana Republic should be purchased as early as possible. However, in tracks with more space for placing Farms, more Banana Plantations should be purchased instead, being the most cost-efficient non-tier 4 upgrade.

TriviaEdit

  • There is actually a real-life clothing store called Banana Republic.
  • Banana republic is a pejorative term for a typically Latin American country politically unstable, submissive and often a rich country with a corrupt and oppressive ruler. Its economy is largely dependent on the export of a single product of limited resources, such as bananas.
  • The flash version of banana republic produces 27 bananas while the mobile version only produces 13.
    • This is because in mobile, there are half the amount of bananas, but they are worth double the money.
    • The flash version of appearance have one tree and the mobile version appearance have two trees.
    • The banana republic is not as good as two banana plantation, because two banana plantation is cheaper than a banana republic and they give more cash too.
    • In BMC, banana plantations are very very good as they produce a lot of cash in one round and you can get back all the cash in one round!
