Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

“This be Gruntilda's booty! Touch it if you dare...”
A Lockup, Banjo-Kazooie

Lockup is an enemy who is found in Treasure Trove Cove in Banjo-Kazooie. It resembles a treasure chest to match the world's theme. Although it is immobile and cannot be killed, it is fairly large and hollow inside and can be jumped into only when its lid is opened. Its lid, however, is lined with spiky teeth and has a pattern of opening and closing every few seconds.

Banjo and Kazooie must perform a Flap Flip jump (hold Z button (N64) + A button (N64)) to get inside the chest and collect the various "treasures" it holds, one of which is a Jiggy. But note that the Lockup with the Jiggy will open and close faster.


  • If, through hack you get inside with the Flap Flip and then use the Wonderwing it will explode like a Boom Box
  • Lockups could possibly be inspired by Mimics from different rpg games.
