Isle O' Hags
Map from the Nintendo Power strategy guide
The Isle O' Hags is the hub world of Banjo-Tooie, and the greater setting of most of the game.
An overhead view of the island is visible from Cloud Cuckooland, and all the other worlds in Banjo-Tooie except for Spiral Mountain are visible on it. The most obvious features include Hailfire Peaks, disconnected from the rest of the island to what can be assumed to be the southeast, Cauldron Keep's pink moat on a peak in the center of the island, Terrydactyland's distinctive ringed canyon shape to the north, and Mayahem Temple in the west. The Isle O' Hags is composed mostly of green, lumpy rock, resembling Gruntilda's green, warty skin, though the island's actual worlds seem to lack this feature.
Despite popular belief, it does not seem that the Isle O' Hags was ever intended to be the greater location of Spiral Mountain or any other worlds besides those introduced in Banjo-Tooie. This is evidenced by its lack of representation in the island's overhead view, the fact that it is never mentioned in other games outside of references to Banjo-Tooie, and an information speaker in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts saying that the digger tunnel "once lead to" the island.
