The Banjo-Kazooie series features many characters; however, some characters also make passing mentions of other characters who remain unseen by the player, and as such their existence is only implied. This page is a list of implied characters in the Banjo-Kazooie series, ordered by the game in which they are first mentioned.
Mentioned in Banjo-Kazooie
Gruntilda's dog is mentioned by Brentilda in Banjo-Kazooie, as one of her facts about Grunty for the Grunty's Furnace Fun quiz show. The dog's actual name is randomly-generated at the start of each game file, and is either "Bignacka," "Legchomper," or "Ripper."
Gruntilda's band is mentioned by Brentilda in Banjo-Kazooie as a Grunty fact. According to Brentilda, it is a musical group she is part of during the events of the game. The name of the band is randomly-generated at the start of each game file, and is either "Grunty and the Broomstick Boys," "Grunty and the Cauldron Crew," or "Grunty and the Monster Mob."
Gruntilda's best friend
Gruntilda's best friend is mentioned by Brentilda in Banjo-Kazooie as a Grunty fact. Grunty met her best friend during her days at witch school, and the name of her friend is randomly-generated at the start of each game file, and is either "Fatty Hatty," "Sweaty Betty," or "Saggy Maggy."
Gruntilda's boyfriend is mentioned by Brentilda in Banjo-Kazooie as a Grunty fact. Brentilda mentions that this boyfriend was her "first and last," meaning they are likely not seeing each other as of the events of Banjo-Kazooie. The name of her boyfriend is randomly-generated at the start of each game file, and is either "Undead Ed," "Dirty Berty," or "Greasy Grant."
Gruntilda's pet is mentioned by Brentilda in Banjo-Kazooie as a Grunty fact. Grunty's other pet (besides her dog), which she owned while she was younger, is randomly-generated at the start of each game file, and is either a baby dragon, a mad vulture, or a greasy warthog.
King Sandybutt is a former ruler of Gobi's Valley. When Banjo and Kazooie enter his tomb, they are notified by a Mum-Mum that the tomb belongs to King Sandybutt, and tells them to leave, beginning a countdown. If they do not make it to the end of the tomb's maze within the time limit, they will be crushed. If they do, however, they earn a Jiggy, which can be found in Sandybutt's casket.
Dingpot's girlfriend is mentioned as one of Dingpot's random lines of dialog when Banjo and Kazooie stand near him. All that is known about her is that she was a saucepan and Gruntilda broke her handle.
