Banjo finds the Mumbo's Mountain Jigsaw Puzzle.
Not to be confused with Bottles' Moving Picture Game.

Jigsaw Pictures are an object in Banjo-Kazooie.

Location and uses[edit]

Jigsaw Pictures are used by Banjo and Kazooie to access a new location, usually a world. They have to put missing Jiggies into a world's picture, so Banjo and Kazooie can enter that world. There are 11 Jigsaw Pictures in total, nine of which unlock access to a new world. Bottles provides instructions on using the Jigsaw Puzzles, and even warns Banjo that placing a Jiggy causes it to be permanently stuck. Starting with Treasure Trove Cove's Jigsaw Picture, which requires two Jiggies, Banjo has the ability to remove a placed Jiggy. He also teaches Banjo how to place every Jiggy at once when the bear goes to complete his third Picture. Additionally, after completing the Mumbo's Mountain picture, dialogue from Grunty appears on screen: "That was such an easy fit, the others may just test your wit!"

The controls are as follows:

  • A Button - Add a Jiggy
  • Z Button - Add every Jiggy at once
  • Camera down Button - Remove a Jiggy before every one is placed
  • B Button - Exit the puzzle


At least 98 Jiggies are required to finish every puzzle, leaving a remainder of two Jiggies.
