Master Jiggywiggy, Banjo-Tooie

Master Jiggywiggy is a recurring character in the Banjo-Kazooie series.


Master Jiggywiggy is the keeper and protector of the Jiggies and the Crystal Jiggy. He appears in Jiggywiggy's Temple. He wears a bright yellow tunic and a bright blue cloak with Jiggy images on it held up by a honeycomb-shaped brooch, and his head resembles a Jiggy. Master Jiggywiggy has a disciple named the Disciple of Jiggywiggy.

Grunty's Revenge[edit]

In Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, Master Jiggywiggy reveals that Gruntilda has cursed the Jiggy priests. This curse prevents him from touching the Jiggies, so he relies on Banjo and Kazooie to collect the Jiggies instead. Other characters resembling Master Jiggywiggy are located in Jiggywiggy's Temple, but they all wear plain brown robes. When Banjo and Kazooie have a certain number of Jiggies, Master Jiggywiggy allows them to activate the Crystal Jiggy to open the next world.


In Banjo-Tooie, whenever Banjo and Kazooie have enough Jiggies to unlock the next world, the Disciple of Jiggywiggy allows them to enter Jiggywiggy's Temple. In there, Master Jiggywiggy tasks Banjo and Kazooie with a jigsaw puzzle challenge, which they must complete within a time limit. If the duo are successful, Master Jiggywiggy uses the Crystal Jiggy's power to unlock the doorway to the next world.

If Banjo and Kazooie use cheat codes to open a door to another word, then Jiggywiggy proclaims that another force has opened the door.

If one Jiggywiggy's Challenges is constantly failed, he claims they are perhaps not the chosen ones, and offers to remove the challenge's timer.


In Banjo-Pilot, Master Jiggywiggy makes a cameo appearance as one of the character in the winner's circle.

Nuts & Bolts[edit]

Although Jiggywiggy himself does not appear in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Jolly Dodger does sell a Jiggy named "Mr. Jiggywiggy," which he claims to be "follically challenged, a Jiggy with a wiggy" that is a "high-tech hairpiece so you can't see it."

Flavor text[edit]


  • Manual profile: "Not a lot is known about the ancient order of the Jiggywiggies, only that they are based in a bizarrely-shaped temple somewhere on the Isle o' Hags, and led by a recluse known as Master Jiggywiggy. Legend has it that he controls the all-powerful Crystal Jiggy, and those that need his help must undertake a series of tests to prove their worth..."

Grunty's Revenge[edit]

  • Manual profile: "Left unable to break the magic seals on the world entrances by Grunty's spells, Master Jiggywiggy needs Banjo's help in returning the scattered Golden Jiggies to the Jiggy Temple."


Grunty's Revenge[edit]

  • "You have just collected your first Jiggy. Jiggies are powerful objects containing magic strong enough to break the spell of the great witch Gruntilda. Gruntilda has scattered our Jiggies far and wide across many lands. The spell that she cast on us Jiggy priests prevents us from touching any Jiggies, so we are powerless to stop her. The Jiggy that you've just collected has enough power to open the way to Cliff Farm. I will open the gateway to the altar for you - please carry this Jiggy to the Jiggy pad and press A Button​ to release the Jiggy magic."
  • "Please hurry to the Jiggy altar and press A to open the other worlds! Gruntilda cannot be allowed to win."
  • "You can't open the way to the next world yet. With 6 Jiggies you should be able to break Gruntilda's seal."


  • "I am Jiggywiggy and this is my temple. If you want to see me, you'll need to get past my doorman first..."
  • "Greetings, O chosen one. You have entered the sacred temple of Jiggywiggy. Approach the Golden Monolith if you wish to prove yourself worthy."
  • "Press ​B Button​ when near the monolith to attempt Jiggywiggy's Challenge 1."
  • "You must complete the imagine before you if you wish to travel where it shows. Use the control stick to guide your hand. Press A Button to pick up a piece. Once a piece is held, it can be placed down by pressing A Button or returned to the outside by pressing B Button​. You only have a limited time to prove yourself. May Jiggywiggy grant you luck!"
  • "You have completed Jiggywiggy's Challenge [number], so now the great one will show you the way..."
  • "Behold the power of the Mighty Jiggywiggy!"
  • "You are indeed the chosen one! You also have enough Jiggies to attempt Jiggywiggy's Challenge [number].
  • "You do not have enough Jiggies to attempt Challenge [number]. Come back later when you do."
  • "I have already opened this door for you!"
