Attack Self-Detonation
Special abilities Detonates TNT barrels

The Detonator is the native transformation of Glitter Gulch Mine. As is implied by its appearance, it can detonate TNT barrels simply by standing on the end of the fuse. It also has a self-destruct attack that is triggered by pressing B. It has a wider range than most attacks, and is capable of blasting boulders, but it will also cost a honeycomb, and it can't be triggered when you only have one honeycomb left in reserve. The Detonator has the ability to float in water, while most transformations sink right to the bottom. A model of the Detonator appears on top of some boxes in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.


  • This transformation is the only one that can swim, the reason being is because if it could not swim, if it fell in one of the streams of Glitter Gulch Mine, it would be stuck there, and it would never be able to get out, because it would sink to the bottom.
