Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

Yumblies are small red creatures found in Bubblegloop Swamp in Banjo-Kazooie. They pop up out of the ground in the minigame Eat More Yumblies or Grumblies than Mr. Vile, where Banjo (as a crocodile) must consume more Yumblies and/or Grumblies than Mr. Vile.


Yumblies are red, round-shaped creatures with big eyes and yellow tufts on their heads. It's not known what their full body looks like since they are only seen when popping out of the ground for a few seconds.



In the first two rounds of Eat More Yumblies or Grumblies than Mr. Vile, Yumblies are the desired target to eat in order to gain more points, whereas eating their counterpart Grumblies would make the player lose points. However, in the third round and beyond, the desired one to eat changes depending on whichever one is featured on the screen at the time; If a Grumbly is featured, then the reverse affect will occur.


  • It's unknown if Yumblies are known as Yumbly or Yumblie in singular form.
