Diddy Kong Racing/DS
Tiptup first appeared in Diddy Kong Racing as a playable character and one of the characters called by Timber to help him to stop the evil control of Wizpig. Tiptup's theme instrument in this game is a marimba. He, along with Pipsy have the same stats in the game and are known to be lightest characters in the game.
Tiptup returned in the Nintendo DS remake, Diddy Kong Racing DS as, once again, a playable character, but has a lighter sounding voice, starting rumors about that actually being Tiptup Jr. rather than Tiptup himself. Other than that, his characteristics remain the same.
Tiptup reappears in Banjo-Kazooie in Bubblegloop Swamp inside of "Tanktup's Shell" with his own choir known as the "Tiptup Choir". The leader tells the little ones what to sing, and Banjo had to ground pound them the correct way to earn a Jiggy. Strangely, when the challenge is completed, the Tiptup Choir disappears.
Tiptup reappears in Banjo-Tooie where he can be found in Jolly Roger's Lagoon. He apparently is a tourist attraction in the lagoon in the Turtle View Cave. He does not have a choir in this game, but instead, he has a pink egg with his newborn baby inside of it. He hopes it is a boy as he says that he has nineteen daughters. Tiptup Jr. is having trouble getting out of the egg so Kazooie must use her Split-up Pads in the center of the town and hatch the egg, roll over Tiptup Jr. to earn a Jiggy.
