“Bleep! The Saucer of Peril is currently closed due to a lack of power. Bleep!”
—The Saucer of Peril, Banjo-Tooie
The Saucer of Peril is a strangely sentient flying saucer who serves as one of the mini games in Witchyworld.
The Saucer of Peril is trapped in a crate in Glitter Gulch Mine, found specifically in the fuel depot. Detonator Banjo must clear the tunnel's blockage. The Saucer of Peril will then hover closer toward a tunneling area that leads outside to Witchyworld, but finds that the door leading to the said level is not open. Once Banjo and Kazooie open the door connecting the two levels, the Saucer of Peril will hover out of the mines and free itself from the crate. However it states that there is a lack of a power supply, so the minigame is momentarily closed until further notice. But with the help of Mumbo Jumbo, the power can be restored, and the Saucer of Peril will let the duo ride it around in a mini-game where they shoot red, green, and blue colored targets to get points (Red = +1, Green = +2, Blue = +3). If their score is good enough, the Saucer of Peril grants them the grand prize, a Jiggy, for 500 points, and a Cheato Page for getting at least 400. Banjo and Kazooie can ride it for fun anytime afterwards.
At the end of the game, the Saucer of Peril is seen being ridden around by Captain Blubber.
The Saucer of Peril makes its first return appearance in Banjo-Pilot as a powerful weapon that the racers can utilize. Once activated, the Saucer of Peril crashes into the first place racer (similar to the Shell) with more force than a regular Fire Egg. It can be avoided with a well-timed barrel roll.
In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, the Saucer was crashed in Showdown Town by Captain Blubber sometime before the events of game.
In the Terrarium of Terror, Boggy hosts a Jiggy game called "The Saucer Of Peril Returns". Rather than riding in the actual in the Saucer of Peril, the duo ride in a custom-made vehicle that resembles it and is outfitted with an Egg Turret. The mission playes out the same way as the original Saucer of Peril minigame. The path the saucer travels in goes all through the many domes of Terrarium, and even outside it into space.
