Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

The Talon Torpedo is a move designed for underwater combat in Banjo-Tooie which can be learned in Jolly Roger's Lagoon, found in the Electric Eel’s Lair.

When Z button (N64) is pressed while underwater (and while not egg-aiming mode), Kazooie will launch herself from Banjo's backpack at the cost of five Red Feathers. Hold A button (N64) to propel her through the water and simply speed towards enemies to attack. Kazooie can only stay on her own for 20 seconds before returning to Banjo, so make your time count to avoid having to launch again; you can also press B button (N64) to call her back immediately. Pressing C up button (N64) activates first-person view mode, in case aiming is difficult.

In addition to attacking, this ability allows you to snag the items from inside Seemees, and it also the only move capable of busting underwater rocks and gratings with Kazooie's face printed on the front. It is also an effective way to get past Inkies to activate Warp Pads.
