Chuffy is a steam train engine with a cargo car that appears in Banjo-Tooie and is owned by Old King Coal. He is originally found in Glitter Gulch Mine, having derailed from his tracks. A Mumbo spell is required to lift him back onto the tracks. Afterward, Banjo and Kazooie may enter the train, and attempt to use it, but they find out that the train's owner Old King Coal informs them that Chuffy is his train. The duo must enter the train's boiler to encounter Old King Coal, and a battle ensues over the rights to use Chuffy. This is the boss battle for Glitter Gulch Mine. Once defeated, Old King Coal will allow Banjo and Kazooie to use Chuffy as they like.

To use Chuffy, Banjo and Kazooie must open stations in each world by activating a Train Switch. Not all of the worlds have a train station. Once activated, they need only to stand in front of the information sign by each station to have Old King Coal bring Chuffy to the station. Banjo and Kazooie can make use of Chuffy many times to transport different characters, obtain certain Jiggies, and travel quickly between worlds. Notably, since Chuffy is used to gain access to Grunty Industries as the entrance is locked from the outside, the Train Switch is accessible.

Hailfire Peaks is a unique world to Chuffy in that it has two train stations for use; one on the Icy Side and one on the Lava Side. However, Chuffy is unable to travel to the Icy Side of Hailfire Peaks until his boiler is cooled, as the drastic change in temperature would damage Chuffy's engine. This requires Banjo and Kazooie to bring the train to the Lava Side station and find a way to cool Chuffy's boiler. This can be accomplished by climbing up to a platform above the train and using the Beak Buster ability on Gobi's hump to pour water into Chuffy's boiler.
