Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

“What cheek! Fancy trespassing on my glacier without my permission! Boy, are you going to suffer...”
Chilly Willy, Banjo-Tooie

Chilly Willy is an icy blue dragon with a long neck and a comparatively tiny body and is the boss of the Ice Side of Hailfire Peaks. He lives inside an icy lake at the top of the Icy Side mountain. This dragon is the sibling of Chilli Billi, the boss of the Fire Side. Similarly, he has a big head and small body like his brother.

If he is fought first, he assumes Banjo and Kazooie came to deliver his 12-Foot Anchovy Deluxe pizza. Kazooie tells him they aren't and so Willy says he will eat them instead. If he is fought after defeating Chilli Billi, after Banjo and Kazooie made it to him he knew that they must be the bear and bird that defeated his brother. Kazooie remarked that his brother tried to eat them. He says that he had also ordered a pizza and, seeing that Banjo had none, attacked him.

If Chilly Willy is fought first, he will have 6 HP, and if fought after his brother, he will have 12 HP. Most of the time, Chilly is fought second since he is on the Icy Side and the world entrance is on the Fire Side.

He attacks by spitting balls of ice. The only way to damage him is to shoot Fire Eggs into the large cannons that appear around the arena (which can also be used for cover against the balls of ice). Doing this will in turn fire gigantic fire eggs at Chilly Willy. After he takes some damage, the cannons will lower and he will sweep around the arena with his tongue. The cannons disappear after each of them has hit Chilly Willy three times. One other hazard is that the player can fall off the arena and die instantly.

After he is defeated, Chilly Willy decides to get takeout instead. If Billi was fought first, Kazooie stops him, saying that since they have beaten both of them they should get a trophy. Chilly Willy replies, "A trophy, eh? How about this?" and he leaves a Jiggy. He then flies away wondering which way it is to the local McJiggy's fly-through.


If Banjo-Kazooie are on the glacier:

  • Chilly Willy: What cheek! Fancy trespassing on my glacier without my permission! Boy, are you going to suffer...

Introduction (first time, first encounter):

Chilly Willy: Ah... At last! You must be the pizza delivery boy.
Banjo: No, just the local Jiggy hunters.
Chilly Willy: Lies! I bet you've got my 12-foot Anchovy Deluxe in that backpack.
Kazooie: 'Fraid not, wartface.
Chilly Willy: Then I'll eat you instead!

Introduction (first time, Chilli Billi defeated):

Chilly Willy: You must be the pizza delivery boy that beat up my poor brother!
Banjo: He tried to eat us.
Kazooie: I suppose you'll be wanting pizza too?
Chilly Willy: Yes, please. I ordered an Anchovy Deluxe.
Kazooie: Well, tough. We've got none.
Chilly Willy: I'm sure you have! Give me my pizza!

Introduction (second and subsequent times):

Chilly Willy: Have you got my Anchovy Deluxe pizza yet?
Kazooie: No.
Chilly Willy: Then I'll chew your bones once more!

When struck by an egg that doesn't damage Chilli Billi:

  • Chilly Willy: That feeble egg won't hurt my frosty body!

When struck by a fire egg:

  • Chilly Willy: burns!

When Chilly Willy decides to lick the duo:

  • Chilly Willy: Let me have just a little taste...

When Chilly Willy is defeated but not yet Chilli Billi:

  • Chilly Willy: Enough! I've changed my mind. Forget the pizza, but I'm sure my brother will still want his...

When Chilly Willy and Chilli Billi are both defeated:

  • Chilly Willy: Stop it! I don't want pizza anymore...I'll go and get a takeout instead...
  • Chilly Willy: A trophy, eh? How about this...

After Chilly Willy flies off after defeat:

  • Chilly Willy: Now which is it to the fly through McJiggy's?

  • In the boss replay mode, even if Chilly is fought first, he will always have 12 HP.
  • Chilly Willy's color scheme is very similar that that of Perfect Chaos from Sonic Adventure. Seeing as Sonic Adventure was made before Banjo-Tooie, this may be a reason. Other similarities include a long neck-like structure, blue skin and green eyes. The only difference is that Chilly Willy is attributed with Ice and Perfect Chaos with water.
  • It is not possible to fight him as Banjo or Kazooie alone, as Mumbo, or as a transformation, even if a Gameshark code is used. The reason for this is because Chilly Willy is only programed to start the fight when Banjo and Kazooie together arrive. Even if the fight does start no matter what character is used, Banjo, Mumbo, and the Transformations can't use eggs. The same goes for Chilli Billi.
  • While Kazooie refers to Chilli Billi as buddy if he is defeated second, Kazooie will refer to Chilly Willy as a frosty fool.
  • He shares the same name as the famous penguin character from the cartoon series of the same name.
