Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

Stony Model

The Stony model.

“To free the trapped one, a star must appear before the sun rises. Another star appears followed by two moons. Does that help?”
A Stony, Banjo-Tooie

The Stonies are rock-like creatives native to Mayahem Temple, although one Stony can be found within the Colosseum on the lava side of Hailfire Peaks. Stonies look like small, relatively featureless rocks from a distance, but will spring to life when approached, growing arms, feet, eyes, and a crown- or headdress-like decoration on their head. Stonies have their own language and speak in phrases which sound uncannily like rude insults (such as "kik yu butta" and "kaz-o-iee dym bird"); using the Stony transformation, Banjo and Kazooie can speak to Stonies for tips and hints.

The Stonies which play kickball in the Mayan Kickball Tournament and Colosseum Kickball Tournament have a much more aggressive and intimidating appearance than normal Stonies, sporting a large chin with a sharp-toothed under-bite and angry red eyes.


Mayahem Temple[]

  • Stony: Nuganip aslik wik weka pojit yz thikko. 
  • Kazooie: I hope that wasn't an insult....
  • Stony: Kik yu butta. 
  • Stony: Tyoxt icx zigna xaqis kirml nuganip icx ptoi.
  • Kazooie: Eh? We speak English in this game!
  • Yusa stpido gitaaz. 
  • Ica kik yuz fura butoxxi. 
  • Ugli bir a byyrd isa. 
  • Stony: Xaqabat ul kaz-o-iee dim byrd datsrite ha ha.
  • Kazooie: Wait a minute. What did you say?
  • Stony: Nanobak cug quaggi kyc nuganip icx xoli fop ni topliz. 
  • Banjo: Sorry, I didn't quite catch that...
  • Stony: Icx dib zaqim avlnr icx tsoqa xoli. Nuganip yumk icx carxko.
  • Banjo: Mmm... I don't think we speak that language...

Hailfire Peaks[]

  • Stony: Aslig weuk wekl posj mlas.
  • Banjo: Aw no, not this again...

While transformed as a Stony in Mayahem Temple:

  • Under the strong rocks you will find many surprises.
  • Only the giant gold man can cross this quicksand to get the Jiggy...
  • Shoot the giant stone ones between the eyes...
  • This is the training area. You may consult any of the washed-up player-coaches for advice.

Taking Kickball training:

  • Stony: Here's my advice, sonny. Try to come in first!
  • Kazooie: Wowee, we'd never have thought of that!
  • Stony: I reckon you should score lots of points!
  • Kazooie: Sigh... I think we could have worked that one out for ourselves.
  • Stony: Use the control stick to move, Z to kick the ball and B to barge. Kick the balls into your goal to score 2 points. Does that help?
  • Banjo: I'm sure we'll soon find out...

Mayan Kickball Tournament:

  • Welcome to the Amateur Kickball Championship! You may enter the Quarterfinals, but I'd advise you take a little training downstairs first. 
  • You've won your Quarterfinal! Move on to the Semifinals... 
  • You've won your Semifinal! The Mayan Kickball Final beckons...
  • (repeated line) May the best Stony win!
  • (if Stony Banjo wins all 3 Mayan Kickball rounds) I declare you the new Mayan Kickball champion! 


  • The Stonies never blink in their talking animations.
