- “Ah, hello sucker! So you've cleaned all those worthless Blue Shells off the beach, eh? Well, I'll tell you what, you can have this genuine one-piece jigsaw puzzle as a reward!”
- —Mr. Ripovski, Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge
Mr. Ripovski is a brown mouse and a businessperson that first appeared in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge. His name is a pun on "rip off".
Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge
In Spiller's Harbor, Mr. Ripovski is a sideshow host. If Banjo has five silver coins, he must go to the N. Kreditz Arcade and give it to Mr. Ripovski to play the Slide o' Fear minigame, where the two race down a slide. During the minigame, Mr. Ripovski floats down while holding an umbrella.
In the Freezing Furnace, there is a minigame where he and two other mice try to catch the Snowies. Mr. Ripovski wears a purple hat instead of a red one, and the other two mice wear a blue and a green hat respectively. If Banjo wins the minigame, he wins a Jiggy. In the same world, Mr. Ripovski hosts another fishing minigame, Fishy Fingers, which takes place inside of an igloo. The objective is for Banjo to catch 12 red fish, this time only identifiable from their shadow, within 40 seconds to receive another Jiggy.
In Banjo-Pilot, Mr. Ripovski makes a cameo appearance at the cerimony that happens when completing a Grand Prix alongside other characters, mostly from Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge.
Mr. Ripovski is a brown mouse with a large round nose and ears. He wears a blue coat and shorts, a belt and a red hat (although he wears a purple one when trying to catch Snowies in Freezing Furnace).
Mr. Ripovski is often shown to be a swindler such as in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge where, in Breegull Beach, he refers to his Jiggy a "genuine one-piece jigsaw puzzle" to draw attention and calls Banjo a "sucker" (meaning easily deceived, conned, or tricked). He was also shown to have an antagonistic side, such as in Freezing Furnace during a minigame where he and two other mice try to kidnap Snowies.
