Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

Snapdragons are enemies that appear all throughout the Isle o' Hags and its many worlds. They almost always appear near ledges that require the Grip Grab ability. If you get close enough, they will pop out of the holes they hide in and either snap up or down, depending on which way Banjo and Kazooie are facing. Even if the player is not grip grabbing a ledge, they are still able to attack the bear and bird. They can be quite an annoyance, as some of them are placed outside the camera's view limits.

Snapdragons appear to be a version of the Grille Chompas that would attack out of a broken vents in Clanker's Cavern in Banjo-Kazooie. They can be defeated if the player fires a Grenade Eggs at the sandy-like hole where they appear. The other, more commonly used method of defeating them is to use Kazooie's Side Peck attack by pressing the B button (N64) button while grip grabbing.

Snapdragons can be found in all of the worlds in Banjo-Tooie, except for Glitter Gulch Mine and Cauldron Keep.


  • The only Snapdragon that is not blue with a sandy-colored hole is above the ledge above Jolly's Bar in Jolly Roger's Lagoon. Its hole is instead camouflaged with the wall so that players might not notice it at first.
