Spiral Mountain is a world featured in every game in the Banjo-Kazooie series so far. It gets its name from the large spiral shaped mountain at its center that is surrounded by a moat. In Banjo-Tooie, the grasses were destroyed by Gruntilda Winkybunion and her sister's minions.

Players start off here in all three of the main games where it acts like a tutorial for new players to the game, teaching them basic controls and moves to help them through the game. Banjo lives at the base of Spiral Mountain along with Kazooie, and Tooty. Gruntilda also lived here prior to the events of Banjo-Tooie.



Banjo lives in a small house at the base of Spiral Mountain along with his pal Kazooie, and his sister Tooty. After Gruntilda the Witch kidnaps Tooty, Bottles the short-sighted mole helps train Banjo and Kazooie in learning some of the game's basic moves.



Because Spiral Mountain has been violently torn apart by Hag 1, there any many destroyed areas and newly opened opened areas because of this - even areas that didn't appear in the first game. The music that plays here is the same as in the first game, albeit in a much sadder tone because of the destructive and saddening events that took place.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

1-6. Six of the Best

  • Talk to L.O.G. at the top of Spiral Mountain
  • Complete the six challenges to win the prizes

1. Stay within the crown for twelve total seconds as it moves

2. Move Grunty's eye to the dumpster by Banjo's house

3. Race around the mountain while switching between land, water and air.

4. Shoot all the giant floating targets

5. Deliver the three honeycombs from the stumps to the top of the mountain.

6. Push all the cube-shaped vegetables out of the area.

  • Between all of these challenges L.O.G. will ask you four trivia questions in true Banjo-Kazooie fashion. Each correct answer gives you five extra seconds.
  • All the challenges are included in one overall timer. Earning the Jiggy time gets you six Jiggies. The same goes for Notes and T.T. Trophy.

7. Spiral Mountain Showdown

  • Talk to Grunty outside Banjo's House
  • Destroy all five of Grunty's vehicles using only one vehicle.

1. This Monster Truck is fast and tough, something homing would be fine enough.
2. This galleon stays in the lake, she's in one place - a piece of cake!.
3. Now invisibility is her power, destroy the vehicle and make her cower!
4. This immobile vehicle can only hop, get underneath to make her stop.
5. Grunty's up to her old tricks, she flies a jet-powered broomstick. The broom is very quick and strong, making the battle extra long!

  • Defeating Grunty beats the game and sends the witch to L.O.G.'s video game factory, which is strangely underneath Spiral Mountain.



  • Jinjo #1 under waterfall on right (requires Talon Torpedo)
  • Pink Stop 'N' Swop Egg in an alcove above the tree stumps
  • Blue Stop 'N' Swop Egg behind the top of the waterfall in a cavern

Pointless Objects


Spiral Mountain Jinjo Oracle


  • The Jinjo Oracle can be found on a ledge to the north of the Jiggy Temple.


  • Jinjos are magical creatures that look like me, but smaller. There's a pink one far to my left. Listen out for their distinctive call.
  • Gruntilda has cast a spell on the Jiggy Priest. He needs your help in his temple to the South.
  • Spiral Mountain sits to the North. On your way there, why not stop by and visit Honey B.'s Hive?
  • Gruntilda's magic is strongest here, around her lair. Mumbo Jumbo has done well to keep away.
  • Poor little Jinjos. Gruntilda's scattered them in all sorts of awkward places.
  • Well done, you've freed all of Spiral Mountain's Jinjos! Maybe the Jinjos will be able to settle down when Grunty has been defeated.
