Peely is one of the poster boys of Fortnite. Along with a handful of other characters like Jonesy, Midas, Fishstick, Peely is the face of most PR material.
Being that he’s an anthropomorphic piece of fruit, Peely has been subjected to more drastic changes than most. When some characters get a new hairstyle, Peely gets turned into a smoothie.
He’s been frozen, stripped down, and become a robot, to name but a few. With so many looks to choose from, it begs the question: which Peely is the Peeliest?
Top 10 Peely Skins
10. Peely Bone
We start with a version of Peely where he’s seen better days.
The semi-skeletal incarnation arrived just after Halloween back in 2019. We mean literally just after Halloween too, as in November 1st. This is against tradition for the most part. Generally, holiday-themed skins are often released prior to an event/date rather than after the fact.
Despite his debut date, Peely Bone looks considerably slimmer and more open than before. On one side, Peely has his base banana peel look, albeit with a few patches of dirt. His peel is also coming away slightly on his head. However, the other half of him gives you a full window into what makes this banana tick.
Despite his high potassium content, Peely has a full skeleton and intestines inside his yellow housing. Even with half his skin missing, Peely still sports a perky smile.
Peely Bone comes in the Banana Bunch Set, costing 1,500 V-Bucks. He also has a built-in emote where he plays his ribs like a xylophone, AKA the Xylo-bone.

9. Polar Peely
Bananas are not just a summer fruit, as Polar Peely proves.
Part of the Frozen series, Peely’s arctic look was released on December 24th 2021 as part of Winterfest. In order to redeem him, players simply had to wait for his giftbox to thaw out in the Winterfest Lodge. Both Polar Peely and Krisabelle were free for all players who logged in post-Christmas Eve during the event.
Polar Peely follows the same aesthetics as Peely in that he has not adopted a wardrobe. Instead, he’s opted for a new style of skin for his outer peel. He’s seemingly achieved this by placing himself inside the ice box to become a frozen fruit.
Being that he’s part of the Frozen and Winterfest collection, Polar Peely doesn’t have a unique glider or harvesting tool. Which is, of course, a shame.
Having an artistic twist for this one, Peely has undergone some special treatment.
Part of a collaboration with the American artist KAWS, this version of the banana buddy features elements prominent in the artist’s work. Here, Peely features two bones protruding on either side of his head/peel. His formerly button eyes are now x’s, and his hands and feet are adorned with chunky gloves and shoes respectively.
All of these motifs are consistent with KAWS (real name Brian Donnelly) and his various pieces of work over the years. His main character, Companion, sports similar features and has his own presence in the game as well.
Within the KAWSPEELY Bundle, this Peely comes with a Companion glider called Far From Home as well as a Back Bling. The Bundle will set you back 1,800 V-Bucks.
A prominent face in the Fortnite lore and mythos, Jonesy’s silent adventure buddy really just wants to learn to drive. As a result, you can find him near many crashed vehicles around the map.
Released as part of the Season 8 Battle Pass, Peely is unlocked at Tier 47. Since stepping onto the scene, Epic has placed him as a regular PR frontman/fruit. Within the lore, he’s been through a lot, including being made into a smoothie. Since Chapter 3: Season 2, he’s joined The Seven but still hasn’t quite mastered being behind the wheel.
Peely has no additional clothing or cosmetic bells and whistles as he’s the base model. He is very much just a banana with an adorable grin. However, the other characters on this list would not exist without him. He has a reactive quality where he’ll become dirty and “too ripe” after a while.
Peely comes in the Banana Bunch cosmetic set with Peely Bone and some additional extras. These include his unique harvesting tool, the Peely Picker.
When the right weather rolls around, Peely takes on the Summer rays in the only way he knows how.
An apt name indeed, Unpeely shows Peely without his hot and stuffy yellow skin. Part of the Summer Legends Pack, Unpeely was introduced during Season 3 of Chapter 2. He came bundled along with Summer Fable, Tropical Punch Zoe, and some additional summer-themed gear.
In full vacation mode, Unpeely rocks a pair of black shorts with a palm tree print. He accessorizes with some orange sunglasses and a specifically shaped straw hat. Unpeely can also be customized to have both of these accessories either on or off individually.
Unpeely and his packaged items were all part of a limited-time offer in the store, so unfortunately, you can no longer get access to the fun-faced fruit.

5. Potassius Peels
A warrior. A hero. A banana.
This gladiatorial version of Peely is a Rare outfit that arrived back in March 2021 during Chapter 2: Season 6. Peely looks like a true Roman emperor with the confidence to go with it. (Although he technically made his first appearance as a statue in the Colossal Coliseum.)
In this ancient get-up, he wears a traditional-looking piece of armor, complete with chest plate. His chest piece is emblazoned with a lion head, and he sports Roman sandals with a civic crown. He also has a cape that doubles as a Back Bling, plus the Gladius of Potassius.
The former “Peelius Caesar” is available for purchase from the Item Shop for 1,200 V-Bucks as a singular purchase.
4. Toon Peely
Mess with the Toon, you’ll get the Hammer.
Introduced in February 2022 and part of the Inkville Gang, Toon Peely came from one of Epic Games’ many surveys. He resembles his usual banana self, but in a style inspired by 1930s animation. The Inkville Gang is made up of many stylised versions of Fortnite’s more wacky characters. This encompasses Bushy, Meowscles, Fish, and of course, Peely.
Like the other Inkville-ians, Peely here is “hand-drawn” in a black-and-white aesthetic. He also somehow looks even happier than he does normally. He also has a large mallet at his disposal, called the Nanner Hammer.
The Inkwell Gang is a pricy club to get into, setting you back 2-300 V-Bucks for the whole bunch.

3. Agent Peely
He has a license to peel, but not to get behind the wheel.
When the breakout of GHOST and SHADOW agents happened, Peely knew he had to step up. Included in the Chapter 2: Season 2 Battle Pass, Agent Peely was a base unlock for purchasing the pass. Here Peely dons a light brown suit and trousers with a blue shirt and red polka dot bow tie. He is ready for action and has a pistol holstered on his left leg.
Reaching Level 34 in the Battle Pass will unlock his GHOST style. This changes his suit color scheme to white and black, with wholly black trousers. His SHADOW style, unlocked at Level 77, gives him a full black ensemble. Finally, hitting Level 300 will grant you Golden Agent, a version of the banana bathed in gold.
Agent Peely comes in the Banana Royale Set with a collection of other items. These include a unique Glider, Back Bling, Loading Screen, Spray, Wrap, Emoticon, and Harvesting Tool.
2. P-1000 – Runner-up to the Best Peely Skin in Fortnite
The Bunker days were hard on everyone, but Peely had it pretty bad.
Officially described as “banandroid”, the P-1000 allows Peely to live his best life despite losing his body. After being turned into a smoothie, he gained himself an artificial suit to allow him to compete.
Arriving in Season X, this Outfit was not a direct purchase. The P-1000 was instead part of the P-1000 Challenge Pack. This was one of the many limited-time offers in the store, costing $14.99. Players would receive the robotic outfit and 5 Challenges that rewarded 500 V-Bucks each.
Peely’s mechanical frame resembles his usual peel-shaped body, but with Peely in smoothie form where his “normal” face would be. Part of the Bunker Days Set, he comes with a bunch of goodies as well as his buddy Jonesy.
1. P33LY – The Best Peely Fortnite Skin
The fruit of the future is now. Here’s the best Peely skin in all of Fortnite.
Known as a “Bananassassin”, P33LY is part of the Tech Future Set from Season 8 of Chapter 2. Matching the theme of the Set, P33LY dons an all-black, athletic-like outfit. Originally spawning from a survey, P33LY’s eyes are a display screen, again like the rest of the Tech Future outfits. He rocks a zip-up top, jogging bottoms, sneakers, and gloves.
The Tech Future Pack comes at a high price in the context of Fortnite, costing $17.99. Although this does include two other characters (NeuralLynx and CRZ-8), as well as themed items.
