Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

More of an obstacle than an enemy, Whiplashes in Banjo-Kazooie come in different sizes and are found exclusively inside Clanker's belly in Clanker's Cavern. These brownish pink tentacles will sway calmly back and forth until Banjo and Kazooie swim by, reacting to their presence by thrashing about madly trying to whip the duo. Whiplashes are immune to Blue Eggs and, since they are always found either underwater or otherwise out of reach while on foot, they cannot be taken on with the Wonderwing like the similar Whipcracks.

Whiplashes are far more common in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, and fortunately, can be killed easily with just about any attack. They are found in every world, both on land and in water, in the open and hiding under piles of sticks. Sickly-looking green Whipcracks can also be seen in the oily waters of Spiller's Harbor and in the icy sea of the Freezing Furnace, but there does not appear to be any difference between these and normal Whiplashes besides the coloration.

Although the ones in Banjo-Kazooie appear to be parasitic creatures living within Clanker's insides, Klungo talks about growing them out of the ground like plants in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge shortly before the first boss fight with him.

  • Although there is a Whiplash on the ceiling of the room inside Clanker's belly with a Flight Pad, it was not programmed to respond to the Beak Bomb attack.
    • It had also been proven through hacking that Whiplashes are not programed to be defeated in anyway, even if they are within any means of getting attacked.
