Banjo-Kazooie

Strategy Guide

  • Faster dialogue

    Hold B to scroll the text dialogue faster.

  • Skip dialogue

    Press L + R + B to skip the dialogue display.

  • Jump further

    During any jump, press Attack.

  • Less damaging fall

    To take less damage from a fall, press Z just before you land.

  • Break the Click Clock Wood boulder

    It is possible to break the boulder blocking the Beaver's hole in Click Clock Wood on the Spring level. Stand on the ledge above the rock, then find the correct angle just to the right of the rock. Drop eggs onto the boulder to break it open. Then, swim into the hole on this level to find some glitches, such as the Beaver still asking you to move the now destroyed rock.

  • Extra lives in Mr. Vile's games

    With Mumbo's help, turn into an alligator in the Bubblegloop Swamp. Then, enter the nose of the giant alligator statue. Now beat Mr. Vile at his games to get a puzzle piece, then leave and re-enter for a new challenge. Beat Mr. Vile in his three games to earn extra lives. Note: If you lose any of the games, you will lose a life.

  • Get the Ice Key

    Note: This trick requires a Game Shark or Pro Action Replay cartridge. Enable the "Moon Jump" code (D0281251 0020 + 8137C4BC 43E0). Then, go to the Ice Cave and press L to fly over the wall and take the Ice Key. Kazooie will say something similar to "We better keep this for later". Pause the game, look under "View Totals", then press Analog-stick Right to scroll through the level statistics. The screen will eventually stop at the Ice Key below the text "Stop n' Swop".

  • Stay as transformed animal

    Note: This trick requires a Game Shark or Pro Action Replay cartridge. Enable the "Moon Jump" code (D0281251 0020 + 8137C4BC 43E0). As an animal, exit the area that was being explored and hold L when the "Mumbo Magic Get Weak" message appears. Do not touch the ground and go through the door. Then, Banjo-Kazooie will still be in the shape of that animal and can explore other areas with that form.

  • Cheat mode

    Successfully complete the "Treasure Trove Cove" world, then return to Banjo's house. Go up to the picture of Bottles the mole hanging above the fireplace and press C-Up to look at it. Make sure you are standing on the carpet. Press R to play a bonus mini-game with a moving puzzle. There are seven puzzles in all. Complete each puzzle to receive a new code. Then, return to Treasure Trove Cove and enter the sand castle that you previously drained the water from and spell out one of the following codes on the floor of the sand castle with the Beak Buster move. Note: These codes are not saved and must be re-entered with each new game session.

    Note 1: Requires Spell Book 1.

    Note 2: Requires Spell Book 2.

    Note 3: Requires Spell Book 3.

    Spell Book locations:
      Spell Book 1

      This book is located behind the entrance to Bubblegloop Swamp, near the jigsaw puzzle for Freezeezy Peak. When you first walk through the pipe that leads to the puzzle board for Freezeasy peak and the second pipe to the spell book, a block of ice will be covering the second pipe. First, get the wading boots in the pipe near the beginning of the Bubblegloop Swamp area. Go through the pipe as Banjo and break the block of ice. Then, have Mumbo Jumbo transform you into the alligator in Bubblegloop Swamp and enter the pipe that leads to the spell book.

      Spell Book 2

      With Mumbo's help, transform into a pumpkin in the Mad Monster Mansion level. Leave the skull and follow the winding path to Brentilda's platform. Enter the small hole and follow the path to the spell book.

      Spell Book 3

      Find the entrance to Rusty Bucket Bay. Locate the cave with three pipes to the right of this location. Open the middle pipe and enter. Activate the "321" switch that is inside to raise the water level. Jump into the water and quickly move to the right. The book is located in the cave to the right.
