Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

Crocodile Banjo (in this form, Mr. Vile refers to Banjo as greeny) is the transformation of Bubblegloop Swamp and the second transformation of Banjo-Kazooie. It is used to get into the Giant Crocodile head and challenge Mr. Vile who waits inside. This transformation can also safely get past the Piranha-infested waters of Bubblegloop Swamp, and replaces Banjo's regular claw attack with a powerful bite (B button (N64)) that gets two Honeycombs to drop from most enemies.

The crocodile is the only transformation in Banjo-Kazooie that can attack. The crocodile is also the only way to find Cheato for the BLUEEGGS cheat, although the tunnel must be unblocked by Kazooie first.


  • This is the only transformation in the Banjo-Kazooie Series that can wear the Turbo Trainers. These are used to aid Banjo in beating Mr. Vile, and escaping being bitten by him if you lose said mini-game.
  • This is the only transformation where Banjo speaks. The talk icon used is of the crocodile head, but the voice will be of Banjo's.
  • Out of the transformations given by Mumbo Jumbo in Banjo-Kazooie, this is the only one that can attack. The Washing Machine can attack, but it is obtained from Bottles.
