'''Stomponadon''' is a giant dinosaur who lives in the [[Stomping Plains]] of [[Terrydactyland]] in ''[[Banjo-Tooie]]''. She is the largest character of the ''[[Banjo-Kazooie (series)|Banjo-Kazooie]]'' series, and only her foot is ever shown, even in the character parade. Judging from her foot, Stomponadon appears to be based on members of the {{wp|Theropoda}} suborder of dinosaurs, such as a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The footsteps in the Stomping Plains (presumed to be from Stomponadon) are those of a sauropod, such as a Diplodocus.
  
Stomponadon constantly tries to stomp on [[Banjo]] and/or [[Kazooie]] while he is crossing the [[Stomping Plains]] in [[Terrydactyland]]. Once stomped on, Banjo and/or Kazooie get crushed and instantly costs them all but one [[Honeycomb|honeycomb]] energy, and remain flattened for several seconds before returning to normal size. A second hit without recovery becomes fatal.

According to [[Gruntilda]], Stomponadon is a female, and as her suggests, Stomponadon constantly tries to stomp on [[Banjo]] or [[Kazooie]] while they try to cross the Stomping Plains. Stomponadon cannot be attacked or defeated. If she stomps on Banjo or Kazooie, they get crushed and instantly lose all of their health except for one [[honeycomb]]. They stay flattened for several seconds before returning to normal size.
  
Stomponadon is invincible and unable to be killed or damaged in any way, and her love of stomping, as her name implies, racks up great damage upon those who wish to cross her territory.

There are large footprints in the ground that protect Banjo and Kazooie from Stomponadon. The duo can safely move between the footprints by either running with [[Talon Trot]] or using [[Wonderwing]] for invincibility. If Banjo is split apart from Kazooie, he cannot get across safely without taking damage; this is because he cannot quickly move between the footprints without Kazooie's help. The [[Snooze Pack]] or either of the three cheats, HONEYBACK, HONEYKING, and SUPERBANJO, are the only way Banjo can move across safely.
 
 
Large footprints in the ground will provide cover—however, speed, protection, or recovery will be necessary to move from print to print without being crushed; the [[Talon Trot]] is usually fast enough, although the [[Wonderwing]] will offer protection if you want to be cautious, but [[Banjo]] alone does not have the necessary speed to make it across without being stepped on, so the [[Snooze Pack]] ability is required to recover energy in between stomps. (Banjo and Kazooie must cross separately in order to grab all the goodies at the other side.) Also, the Super Banjo, Honeyback or Honeyking can help Banjo to pass safely.
 
 
 
Judging by the shape of Stomponadon's feet, she would appear to be based on members of the [[Wikipedia:Theropoda|Theropoda]] suborder of dinosaurs, such as a Tyrannosaurus Rex or something similar, although the exact species is impossible to identify. Oddly enough, the footprints left in the Stomping Plains are those of a sauropod, such as a Diplodocus.

“Triassic Steamroller”
Character tagline, Banjo-Tooie

Stomponadon is a giant dinosaur who lives in the Stomping Plains of Terrydactyland in Banjo-Tooie. She is the largest character of the Banjo-Kazooie series, and only her foot is ever shown, even in the character parade. Judging from her foot, Stomponadon appears to be based on members of the Theropoda suborder of dinosaurs, such as a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The footsteps in the Stomping Plains (presumed to be from Stomponadon) are those of a sauropod, such as a Diplodocus.

According to Gruntilda, Stomponadon is a female, and as her suggests, Stomponadon constantly tries to stomp on Banjo or Kazooie while they try to cross the Stomping Plains. Stomponadon cannot be attacked or defeated. If she stomps on Banjo or Kazooie, they get crushed and instantly lose all of their health except for one honeycomb. They stay flattened for several seconds before returning to normal size.

There are large footprints in the ground that protect Banjo and Kazooie from Stomponadon. The duo can safely move between the footprints by either running with Talon Trot or using Wonderwing for invincibility. If Banjo is split apart from Kazooie, he cannot get across safely without taking damage; this is because he cannot quickly move between the footprints without Kazooie's help. The Snooze Pack or either of the three cheats, HONEYBACK, HONEYKING, and SUPERBANJO, are the only way Banjo can move across safely.
