Enemy from the Banjo-Kazooie series.
Banjo-Tooie (Xbox Live Arcade)
|Location(s)||Glitter Gulch Mine|
A Billy Bob is a strong-armed enemy found throughout the many caverns of Glitter Gulch Mine. These cowboy-baddies hide buried in the ground with only their hats visible and spring up with a characteristic "Yee-haw!" to attack Banjo and Kazooie. Fortunately, they are not remarkably sturdy or speedy, so they can easily be defeated or simply outrun. If not defeated and left alone, Billy Bob's will "Dig" back into the ground, awaiting Banjo and Kazooie to approach him again.
- A fun thing to try is when the Billy Bob hides under the ground and only its hat is visible, blast the hat with a Grenade Egg. It results in a humorous moment as the cowboy flies out of the ground screaming.
- Since Glitter Gulch Mine was originally supposed to be in Banjo-Kazooie, it can be assumed that Billy Bob was also an enemy intended for Banjo-Kazooie, since he hides under the ground in an attempt to resemble Bottle's old mole hills, thus luring the player into a trap. This stratagy, however, no longer works since Jam-Jars took over for move teaching in Banjo-Tooie, using metal silos unlike Bottles' mole hills.
