Jinxy, Banjo-Kazooie

Jinxy is a recurring character in the Banjo-Kazooie series.


Jinxy is a large, stationary sphinx generally found in Gobi's Valley. In his first appearance, Banjo-Kazooie, Jinxy initially complains about how his nose is blocked up, and can be helped by firing Blue Eggs in his nostrills, clearing them. After being aided, he thanks Banjo and Kazooie and opens a passage between his arms that leads to a room containing some Musical Notes, a Mumbo Token, a Jinjo and a Jiggy. A Slappa is also located inside. In his tail, a pair of Wading Boots can be worn and his back contains a Flight Pad.

Jinxy makes a minor appearance in Banjo-Pilot, where he has his own course, Jinxy's Dunes, and is in the background of Gobi's Valley. In Nuts & Bolts, a portrait of Jinxy appears in Banjoland.
