Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

Master Jiggywiggy is the leader of a sacred sect dedicated to the protection and worship of the great Crystal Jiggy which resides in Jiggywiggy's Temple. In Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, Jiggywiggy reveals that Gruntilda has cursed the Jiggy priests. This curse prevents him from touching the Jiggies and forces him to rely on Banjo and Kazooie to collect the Jiggies instead. When Banjo and Kazooie have a certain number of Jiggies, Jiggywiggy allows them to activate the Crystal Jiggy to open the next world. Jiggywiggy's Disciple does not appear in this game, suggesting that he began to follow Jiggywiggy at a later period of time. In Banjo-Tooie, whenever Banjo and Kazooie get enough Jiggies, Jiggywiggy asks them to finish a puzzle containing the image of the next world within a set amount of time. When this is accomplished, he uses the power of the Crystal Jiggy to unlock the doorway to that world. Access to Jiggywiggy's Temple and an audience with "The Great Jiggywiggy" is granted by the Disciple of Jiggywiggy - the only other member of the sect shown in the game - who stands outside the temple and allows Banjo and Kazooie to enter once they have enough Jiggies to complete the next puzzle.

Although Jiggywiggy himself does not appear in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Jolly Dodger does sell a Jiggy named "Mr. Jiggywiggy."

Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge[]

  • "You have just collected your first Jiggy. Jiggies are powerful objects containing magic strong enough to break the spell of the great witch Gruntilda. Gruntilda has scattered our Jiggies far and wide across many lands. The spell that she cast on us Jiggy priests prevents us from touching any Jiggies, so we are powerless to stop her. The Jiggy that you've just collected has enough power to open the way to Cliff Farm. I will open the gateway to the altar for you - please carry this Jiggy to the Jiggy pad and press A to release the Jiggy magic."
  • "Please hurry to the Jiggy altar and press A to open the other worlds! Gruntilda cannot be allowed to win."
  • Jiggywiggy: You can't open the way to the next world yet. With 6 Jiggies you should be able to break Gruntilda's seal.
    Banjo: Okay, I'll go get more Jiggies.
