Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

“A washing machine! Can you give my overalls a quick spin?”
A Skivvy, Banjo-Tooie

Skivvies are six hard working gray rabbits that appear in Banjo-Tooie who work at Grunty Industries, each stationed at a different section of the factory. They are terribly upset because their humble workers' uniforms, which consist of a hat and blue overalls, are filthy and covered in stains after not having been washed for a really long time. After transforming into a Washing Machine and washing each of their dirty uniforms (as well as enduring the horror of seeing them naked), the Skivvies give Banjo and Kazooie a Jiggy for his troubles.

Two Skivvies are on Floor one, one in the Worker's Quarters and the other on a platform adjacent to the Trash Compactor. Another Skivvy is found on Floor two in large room near the Electromagnet Chamber, and another on Floor three in the Boiler Plant's coal storage. The fourth Skivvy is on Floor five in the warehouse, and the last Skivvy is located outside behind the factory building beside some trees. A signpost detailing each of the Skivvies' specific locations can be found in an otherwise empty room in the Worker's Quarters.

They all prefer the "Heavy Soil Wash" setting on a washing machine and are at first reluctant to let Banjo wash their clothes for fear that the uniforms will rip or tear, revealing that they are very protective of their garments. They are also some of the few characters in the series who do not like being naked, as when Banjo washes their dirty overalls, they are embarrassed and cover themselves.


  • The word "Skivvy" is a slang word for a man's undergarments (in the US).
    • However, in the UK a "Skivvy" is a menial worker - usually female.
