“Baaa-ravo!! Here ewe go!”
Bleater, Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge

Bleaters are sheep who live on Cliff Farm in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge. Their name is derived from "bleat", which is the sound made by a sheep or goat. Bleaters talk in farm-based puns, much like Bovina does in Banjo-Tooie. Bleaters tend to incorporate the phrase "Baaa" into most of their sentences.

There are two groups of Bleaters in Cliff Farm. The first group is in the main area, on a cliff above the second group of hay bales. Four Bleaters are trapped in a fence enclosure while a Gruntweed terrorizes them. When Banjo defeats the Gruntweed, the Bleaters thank him and allow him to take their Jiggy. The other group is at Farm Heights, on a cliff to the right of Bluff Barn. When Banjo approaches these Bleaters, the game switches to the Sheep Dip minigame. There, a Bleater asks Banjo to help them reach their bathing spot, the "Sheep Dip", which they feel unsafe going to alone because of enemies around the area. Banjo must reel 12 of them into tubs of water, after which he is rewarded another Jiggy.

In Banjo-Pilot, two Bleaters make a cameo in the Grand Prix awards ceremony along with several other characters from Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge.
