Clinker (speaker)

From Jiggywikki, a wiki on the Banjo-Kazooie series
Jump to navigationJump to search

Clinker is an loudspeaker located at Grunty Industries in Banjo-Tooie. It detects Banjo or Kazooie as intruders and speaks if they approach a certain area or perform a certain action. Clinker is also the announcer for the Twinkly Packing Challenge and Clinker's Cavern. It is unknown if Clinker's Cavern is named after it or the Clinker enemies within.

Clinker is never shown directly, although it has an associated speech icon of a pair of two gray loudspeakers.
