The Black Snippet is a stronger, darker variant of Snippet. Only one appears in Banjo-Kazooie, in the Sandcastle of Treasure Trove Cove.
This crab is much stronger than a regular Snippet, taking a whole five Blue Eggs just to kill; even the Beak Buster is not enough to take it down in one hit. It guards the Jiggy behind the metal gate within the Sandcastle until Banjo and Kazooie solve the puzzle of the Sandcastle's tiled floor. if they kill this enemy with the Wonderwing, then it will drop out two Honeycomb instead of one.
- The Black Snippet rhymes similarly to Gruntilda does.
