Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

Bubblegloop Swamp is the fourth world Banjo and Kazooie visit in Banjo-Kazooie.  The entrance to Bubblegloop Swamp is found inside a swamp-like area on the fourth floor of Gruntilda's Lair. Upon entering the fourth floor, the swamp area is to the left of the Grunty statue, at the top of the orange hill. Its picture is inside the Clanker's Cavern lobby, through a green tunnel behind the waterfall; a switch towards the top of the room must be Beak Busted to open the tunnel. The picture requires 7 Jiggies to complete.

  6. Mean Mr. Vile: Enter the Crocodile Hut as the crocodile transformation and play the minigame: Eat More Yumblies or Grumblies than Mr. Vile.
  7. Feed the Croctus: Shoot a single Blue Egg into the mouths of all the Croctus. Once a Croctus has been fed, another will appear somewhere else in the world. They are found in the following order:
    • At the beginning of the world.
    • On the upper level in the central area of the swamp (en route to Jiggy #7 and the Green Jinjo).
    • Near the top of the Treetop Village.
    • Behind the Crocodile Hut.
    • Behind Tanktup. The Jiggy will pop out after feeding this one.
  8. Tanktup: Perform the Beak Buster move on Tanktup's feet. The Jiggy will then pop out of Tanktup's mouth.
  9. Be a Master Maestro: Enter Tanktup's mouth and talk to Tiptup in the back of the room. Use the Beak Buster on the members of the Tiptup Choir in the correct order they sang. This must be done three times. The number of notes sang increase with each successful round. After clearing the final round, Tiptup will give you the Jiggy. Note: Talk to Tiptup during any of the rounds if you forget the order. Leaving the room will reset the room back to round 1.

  • Orange - Behind Tanktup in the piranha water.
  • Pink - As a crocodile, walk over to the Treetop area. The Jinjo is under one of the trees. It is also possible via a glitch to obtain without transforming; use a Beak Buster on the platform directly above the Jinjo to get it.
  • Yellow - On a platform to the left of the bridge at the start of the level.

Extra Honeycombs[]
