Bigbutts are blue bull enemies from Banjo-Kazooie that appears in Mumbo's Mountain and, Click Clock Wood and its hub in Gruntilda's Lair. One is also featured in the game's opening sequence, along with some smaller, tan variants. They attack Banjo and Kazooie by charging at them, but will first telegraph their attack by aggressively snorting and pawing at the ground. While charging, a Bigbutt can curve his path a slight amount. If one misses, he will quickly stop himself by sliding across the floor.

Bigbutts are very tough, being unable to be defeated, only stunned with Blue Eggs, the Beak Buster or Rat-a-tat Rap move twice. While stunned, they sit on the ground for a few seconds before getting up. They cannot damage Banjo while in that state, with him only bouncing away unharmed if he tries to touch them.

A model for Bigbutt was created for the cancelled Banjo-Kazooie remake, Banjo X; a brief video showing its animation was shared on Twitter. On Twitter, the Bigbutt enemy was erroneously referred to as Bully by Ed Bryan.[1]
