Banjo-Threeie was a 2013 game developed by Rare and released for the Nintendo 3DS after Rare joined Nintendo again. It is the long awaited sequel to Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie.

Mumbo, as he appears in Banjo-Threeie



The story in this game takes place five years after Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts 'N' Bolts. The camera shows off Spiral Mountain and then zooms into Banjo's house. Banjo, Kazooie, Mumbo, and Bottles are seen playing GoldenEye 007 on the Nintendo 64. Meanwhile, L.O.G's factory from Nuts 'N' Bolts seems to be abandoned and reduced to rubble. The rubble starts to shake and out of the rubble bounces the skull of who else but Gruntilda? Grunty attempts to bounce to Banjo's house but is too weak to do so. But of course, Grunty's old friend Klungo happens to be passing by. Klungo then picks up Gruntilda's skull and asks what happened to her. she tells the story of how L.O.G. Fired Gruntilda, angering her enough to exact revenge by burning down the factory. The old hag then proceeds to hatch a master plan to get revenge on Banjo and Kazooie. Before she tells her plan to Klungo, Klungo takes Grunty to the new lair that the sisters of Gruntilda, Mingella and Blobbelda reside. Then Mingella shows Gruntilda a machine they made that would install Grunty a new body. The confused Grunty is stuffed inside the machine. when she comes out of the machine, she regains her appearance from Banjo-Kazooie. With a familiar cackle, the witch begins to tell her plan to her sisters and Klungo. She says she will kill Banjo and all his friends. She decides to put Jiggy spells on entrances to worlds in another part of Isle 'O' Hags that differs from Tooie. The reason she puts these spells on the worlds is that they hold Jiggies, which we all know Grunty wants to keep away from the bear and bird. Then Grunty assigns Klungo to go kill Banjo.

Banjo, Kazooie, Mumbo, and Bottles, completely unaware of what's about to happen, are still playing GoldenEye. Klungo breaks into the house and wrecks everything, destroying Banjo's house. Tooty's (Banjo's sister) is then shown in her room, bored as ever until Klungo bursts in and beats Tooty to death! Klungo then proceeds to try to kill Banjo. Banjo manages to kick Klungo out, but not before Klungo knocks over a lamp that starts a fire! Everybody is evacuated, including Tooty (Who Banjo carries out, thinking she only fainted.) Everybody is safe the next morning when Banjo realizes the horrible truth, Klungo killed Tooty. Banjo swears revenge on Tooty's death. Then, popping out of the ground comes Jamjars. Jamjars was spying on the sisters of Grunty ever since the new lair was built. He tells Banjo that he won't be needing to go to the parts of Isle 'O' Hags that appeared in Banjo-Tooie (besides Jinjo Village) as Banjo has already collected all the Jiggies there. Instead, for Banjo to defeat Grunty, he will have to collect Jiggys from another area of Isle 'O' Hags. Banjo will have to collect Jiggies and go to Jamjars' house (located in the newly accessible areas of Isle 'O' Hags) so Jamjars can open up new worlds for him using a puzzle challenge. similar to Master Jiggywiggy from Banjo-Tooie.

By the time Banjo makes it to Gruntilda, she's already murdered Bottles (again), Boggy, Tooty, Humba Wumba, Gobi, Jamjars, and even dismantled L.O.G. After a tough quiz, Banjo, Kazooie, and Grunty duke it out in an extremely long and tough match. After this match, Banjo and Kazooie make it to the next room and use B.O.B (from Banjo-Tooie) to resurrect all their friends. After this, they have a party at Banjo's house (after they reconstruct it of course.) Gruntilda is seen, with the same fate from Banjo-Kazooie, stuck, under a boulder, helpless.

Main Characters

There is a majority of familiar characters from the first two games. All the characters have retained their designs from the original games, including characters appearing in Nuts 'N' Bolts.


Banjo is of course the one of the two main protagonists of the game and the series as a whole. Banjo retains his personality from the classic games. He's lazy, quiet, kind, fat, and just about the rest of his personality.


Kazooie, the other protagonist is as loud and rude as ever. She is fond of adventure, unlike her friend, Banjo. Most moves that Bottles and Jamjars have taught the duo in the last two games and in this one would be impossible without Kazooie.

Mumbo Jumbo

Mumbo is the skullhead you know and love. He reprises his role as the shaman with his magic proporties, is able to make different things happen in the levels. This time around though, he IS in fact, able to leave a world and in order to switch back to Banjo, you must either return to one of his skulls in a world, or just find a blue Mumbo pad which, if you press A, you will take control of Banjo and Kazooie again. To change back to Mumbo, either find a blue Mumbo pad and press A (If Mumbo is on another pad and not in his skull,) or go to Mumbo's skull (if he's there, or find the pad you left Mumbo on and talk to him. This time around, Mumbo can learn some moves of his own, by speaking to Bottles. So now, Mumbo's got a bigger role.


Bottles the Short-Sighted Mole, the character who taught you those moves in Banjo-Kazooie, is back and this time around, he ain't teaching Banjo and Kazooie new moves, he's teaching Mumbo Jumbo new tactics. Next time you see Bottles' mole hill and your playing as Banjo or Kazooie, go find Mumbo.


Just like in Tooie, he teaches Banjo new moves as well as some moves from Tooie that Banjo, lazy as he is, can't remember. Of course the duo remember SOME of their moves from Tooie, but not all of them. So Jamjars is here to teach moves, new and old.

Humba Wumba

Yes, the transformation shaman is back in this new game, her role being the identical to Tooie: Turning Banjo and Kazooie into wacky things.

Gruntilda Winkybunion

The old hag is back for another round, escaping from the rubble of L.O.G's factory, she really is a desperate woman... To kill. She is here for nothing but revenge on Banjo and Kazooie. Grunty of course is beaten in the end once again.


Tooty, the adorable sister of Banjo is finally back in the series, last being seen in Banjo-Kazooie. This time, the little girl isn't kidnapped, the poor girl is beaten up so badly by Klungo, receiving fatal blows from the old brute. She is the first victim of Banjo's friends to die, others followed, but in the end, Banjo used Grunty's machine B.O.B's life force mode to resurrect all of his friends back.


After having a failure game (Hero Klungo Sssaves the World,) he rejoins Gruntilda and follows her every command. The poor fellow has to clean Grunty's underwear, noting that Grunty loves to eat beans, washing her undies must be a terrible experience.

The art style takes inspiration from Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie, retaining its colorful and bright colors, doing away with the less colorful art style of Nuts and Bolts.The gameplay stays true to Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie. The Jiggy counting system is the same as Tooie, collecting notes has returned to the style of Banjo-Kazooie's note collecting, and now there are ten worlds instead of 9 (Kazooie) or 8 (Tooie.) the game is a lot more difficult than Tooie and will keep a player busy for a long time.


Many worlds appear in Banjo-Threeie, a total of ten worlds! Wow! With a wopping total of 110 Jiggies, this will be hard to 100 percent!

Each world has 10 Jiggies, 100 notes, and three cheato pages. To get Isle 'O' Hags Jiggies, you will need to get the first from Jamjars and the last 9 from rescuing Jinjos.

A level similar to Click Clock Wood. This is a galaxy... Of 5 planets. when first entering the world, you are launched into a rocket, landing in a gravity bubble in the middle of space. There is a move in this bubble, so talk to Jamjars and he will teach you how to swim in space, you will now be able to swim, but your energy will be based on swimming air bubbles. you can swim to one of four rockets, which would send you to a planet, only one rocket is activated and to activate the others, you will need Mumbo's help. There is a fifth planet deeper into space, but only the Voyager 3 transformation could reach this planet, which holds a boss battle.

Boss: Black Hole Death Roll



The first planet is a planet made of stone and holds the most notes of any of the other planets. It is a basic rocky mountain full of... Rocks. It's nothing too special, though. Although, this planet holds home to Mumbo's Skull, as well as a move for Mumbo to learn how to swim in space.

Frozen Ruin

Home to most of the notes, Frozen Ruin can be considered the most tedious of the planets. A planet with 2 Jiggies and 48 Notes, Rare can be quite "cold" sometimes!


A highly toxic planet. The atmosphere has been polluted so badly by Gruntilda, that you cannot live on this planet for long unless you collect air bubbles that are on the planet. This planet is very difficult to navigate through. One false move can mean certain doom!


One of Grunty's abandoned bases is set on this planet, Klungo's long lost brother, Chunko, can be found here. Chunko holds a minigame for you to play that will award you a Jiggy. Besides Chunko, the main attraction seems to be the abandoned fortress.

Jolly has become a more threatening criminal in this game than he was in Nuts 'N' Bolts. This level can be compared to Rusrty Bucket Bay and Grunty Industries due to its difficulty and the fact that the main attraction: The building/factory named Jolly Dodger Enterprises, is a polluting factory, spewing oil everywhere, similar to Rusty Bucket Bay and Grunty Industries.

Boss: Jolly Dodger

After blasting the door, a ladder is discovered, if Banjo climbs it, it leads to a bridge at the top. Crossing the bridge will take you to Grunty's Old Lair. The Talon Trot passage and the original entrance are both blocked by boulders. The entry to Mumbo's Mountain appears to be open, walking into Mumbo's Mountain leads you to the tenth world, Mumbo's New Mountain. It is a nostalgic feel, with only a few changes to show the age of the mountain, there are a couple of Jiggies to be found, but the majority of the world is hiding behind a Dark Eggs door near Conga's Tree. One would be surprised to see that a huge world was hiding behind the mountain this whole time.

This is another quiz hosted by Grunty, this time, the quiz is harder than ever before, and you can't go to the final battle until you beat the quiz. But at least this time, L.O.G is the judge, so it's a slightly fair fight.

Gruntilda's Tower

Jiggies Needed: 95

World Number: Final World

Humba Transformation: N/A

Mumbo Spell: N/A

Theme: The Final Tower

Boss: Gruntilda (Final Boss)

8-Bit Jumpman

8-Bit Jumpman has ran away from home, the Bitlands and wants to rule Flunberry Forest, King 8-Bit tells Banjo to go find his son, 8-Bit Jumpman. So Banjo and Kazooie must fight 8-Bit Jumpman to knock sense into his head and make him realize that he must return home to the Bitlands, where he and his father must watch over. King 8-Bit and Jumpman then start their journey home, telling Banjo that the Bitlands will be in the next game.

Queen Zubba

The Queen Zubba is informed that a Bear is in the Insectio Gardens and waits for Banjo to go to the nest. When Banjo enters the Zubba Nest, Queen Zubba strikes. The battle begins. Stanley the Bugman gives Banjo a hand during the battle


The Roxhands, look similar to Eyerock from Super Mario 64. This battle is similar to that battle. Once Banjo and Kazooie beat them, they give up the Jiggy.

The Grimeman

Considering the world this boss is located in, and everything surrounding it, we think it's obvious what this "grime" is made of...

Captain Flubber

The arch nemesis of Captain Blubber. He has kidnapped the Wild Crew, Blubber's crew. Defeating Flubber will result in him giving up his treasured Jiggy. Then you must search for the 5 pirates scattered across the world and use Taxi Pack to one by one, bring the 5 pirates to Blubber, resulting in another Jiggy.


A dragon living on the volcano Mount Fire-Eyes is overly protective and similar to Chilli Billi and Chilly Willy, he fires down fireballs on you, so it would be best to fight him first before doing anything else.

The Mighty Minjonator

The Minjonator, said to be the ruler of all Minjos, is a powerful Minjo who resides deep inside the Minjo's Lair, waiting to kill Banjo and Kazooie. He is the arch nemesis of the Jinjonator, the son of King Jingaling.

Black Hole Death Roll

Black Hole Death Roll, wants to destroy all planets but is stopped by Banjo and Kazooie. The Balck Hole was once a star, but when he died, he became Black Hole Death Roll, and now spends his time eating planets.

Jolly Dodger

Once a friend of Banjo, he became consumed by greed when he won the lottery one fine day, and has now turned into a full villain and taken over a city, his mind became corrupted, and now wants to kill Banjo (who wants to put a stop to Jolly's greedy acts) if it's the last thing he does. When Banjo defeats Jolly, he snaps out of his greediness and becomes good once again.

Ojanb and Eioozak

Ojanb the Bear and his sidekick Eioozak have come to take over Mumbo's Mountain and are the shadow forms of Banjo and Kazooie. They appear to be based on Banjo and Kazooie's Nuts 'N' Bolts designs with a purple glow surrounding them.

Gruntilda, the Final Battle


HP: 80 (Phase 1)

HP: 100 (Phase 2)

HP ??? (Phase 3)

Phase 1

In the final battle, it begins with Grunty and Banjo being teleported to Cloud Cuckooland. Banjo must use the Breegull Blaster to shoot eggs at Gruntilda. After taking 10 hits, the arena turns into the Lava Side of Hailfire Peaks, Banjo must jump from the fireballs Grunty hurls. When she pauses, that's your chance to go to aiming sight and nailing her with an Ice Egg (She hints that she hates the cold) repeat this until 10 more damage is taken, the arena will now go to Grunty Industries. Gruntilda is controlling a lever that controls a convyer belt, you are in a box on a convyer belt while in Breegull Blaster. You must fire eggs at the lever if your box gets too close to a crusher, and fire eggs at Grunty until she receives 10 damage. You are now in Gobi's Valley where you must go airborn and chase Grunty while firing eggs at her until she receives 10 more damage. Now in Jolly Roger's Lagoon underwater, Grunty flees in a sub that can only be damaged with Lightning Eggs. After 10 damage, once again, the arena changes. This time, you are in Mad Monster Mansion, chasing her while she drives a car. Use Rat-A-Tat-Rat when her car stops. Repeat until 10 damage is taken. In Treasure Trove Cove, you must chase her boat and fire more eggs until 10 damage is taken. Now in Click Clock Wood, chase her while she flies in the skies. After hitting her 10 times, she then starts her second phase.

Phase 2

This battle is a near replica to the Hag 1 fight from Tooie, if you've played Banjo-Tooie, then you have an idea of the battle.

Phase 3

This final phase has Grunty flying to Spiral Mountain, she uses magic to make a chunk of the land rise out of the ground. This piece of land is shaped exactly like the Top of the Tower arena from Banjo-Kazooie. This last battle is an exact replica of the final battle in Banjo-Kazooie. Grunty disables all of your moves except the moves from Banjo-Kazooie. after losing, Grunty once again falls in a hole, under a boulder... Helpless.


At the beginning of the game, you start off with all of your moves from Banjo-Kazooie, and some of the moves from Tooie, the rest of which, must be relearned.

If you want descriptions for moves from older games, please see their respective pages on Banjo-Kazooie Wiki.

Moves From Banjo-Tooie that must be relearned

Anything that's not listed is a move that Banjo and Kazooie still know.

Grenade Eggs

Ice Eggs

Clockwork Eggs

Breegull Bash (Stop 'N' Swop required)



Wall Clamber Boots

Leg Spring

Taxi Pack

Sack Pack

Shack Pack

Snooze Pack

Talon Torpedo

Breegull Blaster and Beak Bayonet (Taught together)

New Moves

Lightning Eggs

Lightning Eggs can do all kinds of things. It can activate electronics, pay tolls, and is overrall, similar to Battery Eggs from Grunty's Revenge. One thing that Lightning Eggs have that Battery Eggs don't is the ability to shock water to activate things.

Dark Eggs

The only kind of egg that can blast open doors with purple magic surrounding them, or anything with purple magic surrounding it in general. This move is required in order to enter Mumbo's New Mountain.

Space Swimming

Right at the beginning of Spacial Voyages, Banjo and kazooie arer taught how to swim in space. Their air bubbles of water are used to count your oxygen in space. This move is required for a couple of things but is only useful in Spacial Voyages.

Sword Attack

Banjo uses Kazooie as a sword to attack enemies. Sword Attack is similar to the Sword attack of Link from The Legend of Zelda series and sword attack of Kirby in Kirby series.

Boat Driving

In places where a water current is too strong to swim, then the solution is to use the move called Boat Driving, when a boat is nearby, hop inside, you can also fire eggs with it. The move is required to fight Gruntilda in the final battle.

As of now, no other moves have been confirmed yet, but there will be more moves.

Mumbo Moves

These are moves that Bottles teaches Mumbo in which most are required.


This is the generic crouching move that Banjo and Kazooie use and is the most simple move that Mumbo will have.

Magic Firing

It's the same move as Egg Firing that Banjo and Kazooie know, but instead of eggs, Mumbo fires magic. Bottles teaches Egg Firing along with the aiming sight to Mumbo at the same time.

Mumbo Grab

The Grip Grab ability is now taught to Mumbo to help him reach places he is needed.

Pole Vaulting

Crouching and pressing A make Banjo and Kazooie Flap Flip, but it makes Mumbo use his Magic Stick as a pole vault to give himself a jumping boost.

Spinning Magic

While Mumbo is running, press the attack button, and he can spin around to either attack, or boost a long-range jump. The move is practically the same move as Kazooie's Wing Whack (While running.)


Now with this move, Mumbo can take to the water and swim underwater to find Mumbo Pads where he is needed.

Space Swimming

The exact same thing as Banjo and Kazooies' space swimming.

It's been confirmed that Mumbo will learn more moves, but as of now, no other moves have been announced yet.

Banjo's (By himself) Moves

Bear Fist

By double-tapping the attack button, Banjo can give a slow, but powerful punch able to blast open steel boulders or doors that have Banjo's face on it.


The Multiplayer consists of all the minigames from Kazooie, Tooie, and Threeie. The Main attraction for Multiplayer is the Squawkmatches. This time around, you can choose a stage in Squawkmatch instead of having only three options.


As mentioned above, Squawkmatch is the main attraction of multiplayer with so much to do.

Starter Characters

Red Mystery Egg

This Egg is found in the Captain's Quarters of Rusty Bucket Bay. Go try to talk to the dead body Tooty at Spiral Mountain and an evil version of her ghost will rise. This an exact remake of Bottles' Revenge (Originally in the beta of Banjo-Tooie) except called Tooty's Revenge where a second player will control her and she can take control of enemys. On boss battles, Tooty will become frightened and flee.

Blue Mystery Egg

Now this is an egg found in the door that Gobi sat next to in Gobi's valley. After getting it, of course go talk to Mumbo as always. Then go talk to King Jingaling and he will give you a new character in multiplayer Squakmatch: King Jinagaling.

The Ice Key

The mysterious Ice Key. Where do we begin? Going to Wozza's cave in Freezeezy Peak, you can get the Ice Key. Using this key in Banjo-Threeie, if you go to the world Minjo's Lair, you can find a cave in which an ice vault resides in. Opening the vault with the key, you will get a Mega Glowbo. Giving this to the Humba that resides in Isle 'O' Hags. You can turn Kazooie into a dragon.

Whenever you find an Egg, save your game, and swap the cartridge with Banjo-Threeie. Then go find Mumbo Jumbo, when he talks to you, he will notice your Stop 'N' Swop Egg and tell you to go to a certain place to get a cool secret.
