Grunty's sisters you should not mock, now watch out magic blast this rock!”
Mingella, Banjo-Tooie

Mingella, occasionally nicknamed Mingy, is a character in Banjo-Tooie.

Physical traits[edit]

Mingella is tall and thin. She wears a sleek, low cut navy blue dress and pointed witch's hat. She has a pink bob cut, a large, thin nose, and crooked yellow teeth.


Mingella is one of Gruntilda's three sisters, along with Blobbelda and Brentilda. Mingella is paired with Blobbelda, and both of them only appear in Banjo-Tooie, as secondary antagonists. Both Mingella and Blobbelda speak in anastrophe.


Mingella and Blobbelda watch Grunty come out of the ditch

In Banjo-Tooie, Mingella and Blobbelda first appear in the opening cutscene, where they arrive at Spiral Mountain. Mingella takes out her spellbook and manages to lift the boulder that Grunty has been stuck under, thus freeing her. Shortly after Grunty is freed, she and her sisters go into the Hag 1 and leave off to Cauldron Keep.

At the Tower of Tragedy Quiz show, Mingella and Blobbelda are contestants. Grunty calls Mingella her "gorgeous, slim sister." Both of her sisters up losing, and Grunty impulsively drops a 1-ton weight onto both of them.

Grunty's Revenge[edit]

In Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge's ending, Blobbelda and Mingella are vaguely mentioned by Gruntilda, who orders Klungo to get her sisters to help her, thus starting the events of Banjo-Tooie.

Nuts & Bolts[edit]

In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Mingella is an incorrect answer for a question in Lord of Games' quiz that asks "who was Banjo's adversary in Banjo-Tooie," with the correct answer being "Gruntilda."

Her and Blobbelda are also vaguely mentioned in Spiral Mountain by a information speaker in the description for "Grunty's Grave." It mentions that, after being buried under a rock in the events of Banjo-Kazooie, Gruntilda was "brought back by her sisters as an even less attractive skeleton."

Flavor text[edit]

  • Banjo-Tooie manual profile (shared with Blobbelda): "The comical appearance of tall, thin Mingella and short, fat Blobbelda is a perfect disguise for their magical prowess, which makes short work of the giant boulder that covered their elder sister's grave. Not since childhood have the wart-covered coven been together, and as a result the odds have suddenly swung back to three against two in their favour!"


  • "Annoying your rhyming is, so stop it or we will not tell!"
  • "Stored in big tank life force is. Shower Grunty will take when tank full, then new body you will have!"
  • "Not slim you are, so plenty will be needed!"
  • "Auto-targeting B.O.B. has. Button you only have to press..."
  • "Target B.O.B. has hit, steal life force he will!"
  • "Successful B.O.B. was, Jingaling's life force we have."
  • "Hours it will take, and revenge bear will seek."
