Bozzeye, Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge

Bozzeye is a character in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge.


Bozzeye is an elderly mole and the ancestor of Bottles. In Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, Banjo meets him at the start of the game, after Mumbo Jumbo sends him back in time to rescue Kazooie. Bozzeye claims to have received a letter from Mumbo Jumbo saying that Banjo would appear. He tells the bear to visit a nearby molehill to learn his first move, Pack Whack. Banjo can only talk to Bozzeye in front of a molehill, otherwise he prompts Banjo to walk to the front. He appears in all six worlds. Like Jamjars in Banjo-Tooie, Bozzeye only teaches an ability to Banjo if he acquires a certain number of Musical Notes. As a result of time travel, Banjo and Kazooie forgot how to use their moves, so every move that Bozzeye teaches them is from Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie, except the Battery Eggs. If Banjo and Kazooie are low on health and talk to Bozzeye, he automatically restores their health.

Bozzeye teaches a total of 14 moves during the game. The only move he does not teach is Flap Flip, which Kazooie teaches to Banjo when he frees her in Breegull Beach.

In Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge Mobile, Bozzeye instead teaches the duo 9 moves, although the Totals screen shows a total of 10 moves. The first move is already registered after the intro cutscene, right when Banjo begins his adventure, despite him not being taught any actual move.

  • Climb (Cliff Farm) - 40 notes
  • Forward Roll (Cliff Farm) - 70 notes

Flavor text[edit]

  • Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge manual profile: "When it comes to new attacks and ways to explore, this mole has all the knowhow. But Bozzeye's lessons don't come cheap, so get collecting Notes!"


Name origin[edit]

His name likely comes from the term "boz eyed," which refers to a person who has one of their eyes permanently half shut.
