Swellbelly is a large blowfish enemy which inhabits the depths of Jolly Roger's Lagoon. It reacts to threats by puffing itself up to an enormous size, piercing anything that gets too close with the sharp spines that cover its body.

Swellbellies can be easily defeated by using the Talon Torpedo or by firing Grenade Eggs at them once Banjo and Kazooie learn how to use Sub-Aqua Egg Aiming underwater.


  • The models used for the Swellbellies were recycled from Donkey Kong 64 except the skins have been re-colored. Similar blowfishes on Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing Transformed were used as weapons which permanently inflate when placed on the race tracks where the racer dropped it at to interfere the path. If touched by racer or any item shot at it causes the fish to deflate.
