“Oh, hello there! I'm Jolly Roger, town mayor and proprietor of this lovely harborside inn”
Jolly Roger, Banjo-Tooie

Jolly Roger is a flamboyant and somewhat campy frog and friend of Banjo and Kazooie, ever since his debut in Banjo-Tooie.

Jolly Roger eventually retired from his position as mayor of Jolly Roger's Lagoon to become a sketchy criminal In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, simultaneously changing his name to Jolly Dodger to fly under the police's radar.


Banjo Tooie[edit]

Jolly Roger in the Character Parade of Banjo-Tooie.

Jolly Roger, a foppish frog dressed in bellbottom pants and a blue sailor uniform, is the eponymous mayor of the seaside town Jolly Roger's Lagoon and also owns the local tavern. In Banjo-Tooie Jolly has a very small role and is considered a very minor character. He is involved with one Jiggy.

When the duo first meet him, he is atypically depressed due to the fact that his partner, Merry Maggie, whom he needs for the tavern's approaching happy hour, has recently disappeared. When the duo return with her, Jolly gladly rewards them with a Jiggy and sends them on their way.

Jolly allows Banjo to rent the inn's only vacant room at a discounted two Doubloons, as a "naughty mole" has carved a hole in the corner in it (although Kazooie can simply blow up the door off instead of pay). If the duo refuse to pay, he unhappily states that he was hoping they would deal with the "rodent rascal" for him. However, learning the move that Jamjars teaches here (Sub-Aqua Egg Aiming) is required to further progress to through the level, so getting inside the room (regardless of which tactic is used) is a very important task.

Conversing with Jolly afterwards serves no actual purpose, and doing so will only result in Jolly thanking them for their help earlier. However when they inspect the Jukebox in the corner, he will tell them that it's broken. The only way to fix it is by collecting all 25 Cheato Pages and returning them to Cheato, who will present them with a special cheat that fixes it. Jolly has a tendency to dance wildly on the bar counter whenever the Jukebox is playing.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts[edit]

Jolly Dodger with fake Killer Instinct 3 covers

Jolly "Dodger" appears in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts along the seaside in various locations, like under Klungo's pier, behind a tree near the lighthouse and at the end of a dock near a hill, but can only be found at night. He offers to sell the duo Jiggies for various prices. The name of each of the Jiggies are different but they all put Jiggies in Jolly's personal Jig-o-Vend, which is located behind King Jingaling's Bingo Palace. After all of Jolly's "Black-Market Jiggys" have been bought, he can no longer be encountered in Showdown Town. His wardrobe has changed from his original sailor outfit to a more eclectic tattered pink coat and top hat. His skin has also lightened up and is no longer a dull olive green, but rather a bright, pale green. Most peculiar though is the fact that he now has a mouthful of gleaming teeth.

Jolly also appears at the end of the game alongside the rest of the cast, congratulating Banjo and Kazooie for beating Gruntilda once again. He also surprises for the duo by fixing their house, but, much to their disliking, repaints it pink and white instead of the original blue and yellow.

In addition to his role in Showdown Town, Jolly appears as hosts of various challenges in a two of the Game Worlds created by L.O.G. in addition to the extra level L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges:

LOGBOX 720[edit]

In the first Game World he stars in, Jolly plays the role of "The Celebrity Coding Sensation", a spunky celebrity coding expert. He wears a black trench coat, sunglasses and a pink spiky-haired wig. In this world, Jolly regards himself highly and considers himself a true celebrity, and is thus deeply dismayed when there is something he cannot accomplish.

His missions predominantly revolve around defending the console from enemies and certain doom. In Act 2, he wants the duo to defend the console's computor chips from Gruntbots. Later in Act 6 he asks them to zap all of the bugs in the console.

Terrarium of Terror[edit]

“Oh, master Banjo, I'm doomed! If I fail to secure adequate transport for my team, I'll be turned into a cassette player!”
Jolly, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

Jolly is cast as "The Docile, Dithering Doormat Droid", a timid subservient robot working for the space crew. He wears a yellow and chrome trench coat and silver robot mask. Jolly tries his best to serve his "masters" well, but, despite being a technologically advanced robot, has trouble completing his tasks and is always being punished for his incompetence. Thus, he must rely on Banjo and Kazooie to help pick up the slack.

His missions invlove transporting things and people around the level. He first appears in Act 2 to ask the duo to taxi him and the rest space crew to various locations. In Act 3 he faces a "beverage-related disaster" and needs the bear and bird to deliver tea and expensive biscuits to the other characters.

L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges[edit]

Jolly plays "The Deep Double Agent" in this world, and wears his LOGBOX 720 outfit. His only challenge is to stay within a Crown Corona long enough.


Main article: Jolly Roger/quotes



  • If you find Jolly Dodger in Showdown Town, he might open his briefcase, revealing game boxes of the as-of-yet unreleased Killer Instinct 3 (abbreviated as KI3 on the boxes).
  • Rumors state that the Jiggies sold by Jolly in Nuts & Bolts were originally to be won by collecting the T.T. Trophies of the scrapped world Weird West.
  • Jolly's identity as the Jolly Dodger is probably based on the Artful Dodger from Charles Dickens's novel Oliver Twist.
