Clinker is a loudspeaker who cannot be seen but is heard around Grunty Industries. Clinker will speak each time Banjo or Kazooie makes a misstep in Grunty Industries. Clinker is also the announcer for the Twinkly Packing Challenge and Clinker's Cavern.

Clinker's Cavern is either named after the Clinker loudspeaker or the brown creatures found in the cavern which are also referred to as Clinkers.
