Games

Banjo-Kazooie

As their name implies, once obtained, these give Banjo and Kazooie one extra life. They are muscular golden statues of Banjo.

Whenever a game file is loaded, the duo begin with three lives (regardless of how many they had when the file was last played). Seemingly, up to nine lives can be collected, but if then one or more lives are collected and the duo dies, when they are reborn, the screen still indicates that the player possesses nine lives. They can be found in virtually every level, but are usually hidden and require Banjo and Kazooie to use quick movements and decisive thinking to acquire them. There are either two or three Extra Lives in each level, and are regenerated each time the duo exit and re-enter the level. An extra life is also earned by getting all 100 notes in any level.

This is the only game that Extra Lives serve this purpose. They do not appear in Banjo-Tooie because it does not have a life system as its predecessor did, thus these golden Banjo statues were not needed.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

A yellow Jinjo in Act 6 of LOGBOX 720 had lost his Extra Life and needs the duo to recover it for him. It is located on a ledge in the upper portion of the console, so a plane-type vehicle is needed. A yellow Jinjo Token is won for bringing it back.

In terms of appearance, the lone Extra Life in this game is nearly the same as the ones in Banjo-Kazooie. However this one is much larger than Banjo, has no base, and has his same, unimproved physique.
