Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

The Jiggosseum is a level from Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. The level is mainly themed around sports. Some sports/games that appear in the level are Racing, Soccer, Dominoes, and Basketball. The level is set inside a huge Roman-style stadium/arena, with a food court underneath it. During Act 4, the entire coliseum is flooded, and the interior areas are inaccessible due to a gigantic patchwork floor. The level's name is a portmanteau of Jiggy and coliseum. Characters that appear in this world are Trophy Thomas, Mr. Fit, Pikelet, Boggy, Captain Blubber, and Bottles. On Xbox Live, multiplayer games are mostly set here.

Each 'act' of this level requires an increasing amount of jiggies to open (see infobox to the right).

Jiggoseum Intro

  • The music for this level includes a version of the Hailfire Peaks score from Banjo-Tooie.
  • The intro for this world parodies the TV show, Dynasty.
  • The scoreboard marquee at the top of the arena shows fake matchups between fake sports teams (the teams are named after Banjo characters, and there's even one named "Twycross Athletic", which is where Rare is based). Eventually, it will read, "Is anyone actually reading this?" Later it will say "Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts must be boring if you are still reading this instead of playing the game."
  • Strangly this is the only world in the game that has 2 Gruntilda challenges. It has been speculated that one of these challenges was originally meant for Weird West (probably 9-Ball Nightmare, as Who Left The Tap On? probably would have had a much different arena).
