Special Moves

  • Neutral B: Banjo holds Kazooie in a rifle-like way and spews eggs out of her mouth, as compared to the games. This can be mobile, as well.
  • Side B: Banjo and Kazooie prepare to run in a cartoonish way and then ram forward across the stage losing Golden Feathers while Banjo is covered when running, this move is called the "Wonder Wing".
  • Up B: Banjo lets Kazooie carry him and she crouches before jumping pretty high, acting like Sonic and Mega Man’s Up B.
  • Down B: Banjo bends over and Kazooie poops out a grenade that’s able to be thrown by other players, that automatically detonates when it hits a player when thrown at them.
  • Final Smash: Banjo charges into the opponent to send them to the Jinjos and they all swoop into the opponent a bunch of times before charging at the opponent together, with a slo-mo scene where the opponent gets hit for the final time.


  • Taunt 1: Banjo and Kazooie swerve from left to right (and vice versa) in sync while looking at each other, followed by a confident thumbs up.
  • Taunt 2: Banjo performs a bow from right to left, subsequently giving his signature 'Guh huh!'[1].

On-Screen Appearance

Idle Poses

  • Banjo stands on his toes, stretching his body and arms.

Victory Poses



  • Banjo & Kazooie’s reveal trailer is a spoof of King K. Rool’s reveal trailer.
    • This is possibly a reference to how Rare Limited developed both Donkey Kong games and Banjo-Kazooie games.
  • Banjo & Kazooie can be considered both Nintendo and Microsoft characters, due to the two console companies’ histories on owning the character publishing rights. This means that Banjo & Kazooie might be a dual-party character.
  • Banjo & Kazooie's introduction tagline refers to them as Banjo-Kazooie, the name of their game series instead of their actual names separated.
  • Their introduction tagline is also a nod to Rare Limited, who developed their titular game series.
  • Banjo & Kazooie are the first playable characters that their rights are currently owned by a direct competitor to Nintendo hardware-wise.
