Jippo Jims[1] are an enemy in Banjo-Tooie.


Jippo Jims appear throughout Witchyworld. They carry around a large mallet, which they try to attack Banjo and Kazooie with. Jippo Jims wear a different costume based on the theme of the area they are at. In the Wild West Zone, Jippo Jims are dressed as cowboys, in the space-themed areas they are dressed as aliens, and in the Horror Zone, Jippo Jims wear a Frankenstein-like mask. One Jippo Jim at the entrance and exit gate is dressed as a ringmaster. Another Jippo Jim appears in Mumbo's Hut.

Name origin[edit]

The name "Jippo Jim" may refer to either the term "Jippo" or "Jip," a slang term for a swindler; this refers to Witchyworld's bad business practices.
