In Banjo-Kazooie, the Bumble Bee (or Bee as it is called in the game) is the transformation of Click Clock Wood, as well as the most expensive one in the game (costing a whopping twenty-five Mumbo Tokens to perform). Its value lies in its ability to fly by pressing in mid-jump, without requiring the use of Red Feathers or a Flight Pad.
When flying, the player can press to fly higher and hold to fly faster. When the Bee enters water though, it will immediately fly automatically. The Bee is also immune to the thicket area surrounding Mumbo's Skull and to the Snarebears; however, the transformation is only usable in Spring (as Mumbo Jumbo has various excuses in the other seasons). Interestingly enough, cheat codes have proven that Bee Banjo can walk on the quicksand of Gobi's Valley and the murky waters of Bubblegloop Swamp, but not on Freezeezy Peak's ice water. A possible explanation is simply because of the different settings of ice water as opposed to quicksand. As you'll stand in a bottom of water, rather than walking on top of the sand.
In Banjo-Tooie, the Bee is the native transformation of Cloud Cuckooland. In addition to its flight abilities introduced in Banjo-Kazooie, it can now fire stingers at enemies using (with to aim). When flying, you can fire at a much faster rate than when standing. Stingers do similar damage to Blue Eggs and are the only way to destroy the Eyeballus Jiggium Plants. The Bee will also leave an animation trail of blue sparks when flying faster.
- Despite the four parts of Click Clock Wood being one world, Bee Banjo can only be used in Spring.
- The bee is the only Banjo-Kazooie transformation whose magic can run out within a level. Bee Banjo will automatically change back to regular form upon entering the Summer, Autumn, and Winter sections of Click Clock Wood. It also happens to have the most zones where the transformation can be undone (with eight) while every other transformation only has one.
- The bee is the only transformation that cannot go underwater, instead, when it touches water, it automatically starts flying.
- There is a Glitch where you go to a Warp Cauldron under the Click Clock Wood room and it cancels the detransformation and you could roam around Gruntilda's Lair as the Bee Transformation.
