Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
Jinxy is a large sphinx with the body of a cat and the face of a bear found in Gobi's Valley.
Since he is largely immobile, items are placed on top of his back and feet, including Wading Boots on his tail and a Flight Pad on his back. Interestingly, he is capable of speaking, and complains of a stuffed nose when Banjo and Kazooie stand on one of the two cacti in front of him.
The duo can remedy his ailment by firing Blue Eggs into his nostrils, tickling his nose and causing him to sneeze. As thanks, Jinxy will open the small door at his base and allow them inside, where they can find some Musical Notes, a Jinjo, a Mumbo Token, and a Jiggy, as well as an angry Slappa.
- "By dose is all blocked up!"
- "Hey! Dat tickles!"
- "Ahhh...that cleared Jinxy's nose. Come on in!"
- The pronounce of the name Jinxy is rather similar to the Pokémon Jynx.
- Jinxy's face slightly resembles Banjo.
- Jinxy has a track named after him in Banjo-Pilot, Jinxy's Dunes. He is in the background of the course.
