'''Big Al''' is a rhinoceros who serves burgers in [[Witchyworld]] in ''[[Banjo-Tooie]]''. He will give [[Banjo]] and [[Kazooie]] a [[burger]] if they ask him. Unfortunately, his burger stand has only earned one star because he usually coughs and steps on his burgers while he is making them. He once claimed to have been working in the restrooms, and doesn't really know how he got his job selling burgers, causing Banjo to "lose his appetite all of a sudden." According to the information [[signpost]] outside of his booth, his burgers are made with 100% meat of rodent origin, topped with a synthetic cheese slice. When his joint is opened up, he is considering putting the burger back on the grill, thinking that the "punters" will never know, until he realizes that his booth opened up. Presumably, the burger fell from the grill and onto the ground. If Banjo gets one of the burgers from Big Al, he'll also ask if he wants fries with that, before admitting that he doesn't sell them and directs them to [[Salty Joe]] to get them before giving it to him. He then states he's all out and claims he'll root around for more, although Banjo tells him that there may have been one under his left foot (presumably the same one that he dropped earlier), with Big Al denying seeing it.

Big Al is a somewhat lazy rhinoceros and an employee of Witchyworld in Banjo-Tooie. He operates the theme park's burger stand, titled "Big Al's Burgers". Big Al is unsure of how he got a job in the food service industry, but according to him, he used to clean the park's toilets before being assigned to his current position.

Big Al has poor hygiene; although he has a terrible cold, he often coughs and sneezes on the food that he serves. He also admits to selling burgers that have fallen on the ground.

Game appearances[edit]

Banjo-Tooie[edit]

In Banjo-Tooie, when Banjo and Kazooie first enter Witchyworld, Big Al's burger stand is closed. The duo can open it by activating a switch on top of the ticket booth in front of the Witchyworld entrance. As the joint opens, Al considers putting the burger back on the grill, thinking that "punters" will not find out, but then realizes that the booth is open.

When Big Al's Burgers opens, Banjo and Kazooie can get a burger from there. Before selling a burger, Big Al offers fries to the duo but then admits they are sold by Salty Joe instead. Big Al only gives one burger at a time, because each time he claims to have run out but would root around for more. Banjo and Kazooie can obtain another burger from Al they leave or re-enter Witchyworld.

Big Al's Burgers is later mentioned at Hailfire Peaks after Banjo and Kazooie defeat Chilli Billi, who says he is going for "a couple of Big Al burgers" before flying away.
