I just recently started maining Diddy and getting in to the Smash scene. I can beat my friends pretty well as Diddy and I can handle myself against 7-9 level bots pretty well but I still don't see what bananas do and why I should use them. Can someone explain?

Because they're an intangible (meaning they don't clank with other hitboxes) that increases Diddy's aggressive and defensive options a ton. When you hit your opponent with them they enter a slip animation where they're stuck in a ton of lag that let you get free combos and kills. Glidetossing with them opens up for movement options. Diddy without bananas is really, really bad.
