Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

Boom Boxes are volatile enemies found throughout the surrounding area of Rusty Bucket Bay. Enemies do not get much more intimidating than a box labeled "TNT" in big red letters with sharp teeth, and this one has an attitude to match its appearance, aggressively chasing after anyone that gets too close and self-destructing to destroy the target.

Getting close to a Boom Box will cause it to explode, so to reduce the risk of personal injury, it is best for Banjo and Kazooie to take on Boom Boxes from a distance by firing Blue Eggs at them. The Wonderwing is also an effective solution, especially when faced with a large group. If the player is low on ammunition, Boom Boxes can be made to blow themselves up simply by letting them chase you for a few seconds.

Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge[]

Boom Boxes reappear as deadly opponents in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, both in Spiller's Harbor and Freezing Furnace. They do not change in their attack method, but as far as characteristics, the Boom Boxes now look simply like crates with a TNT stamp posted on them.
