“Hur...hur...hur! I'm Mr. Vile, greediest croc of all! Play my game to win a prize!”
Mr. Vile, Banjo-Kazooie

Mr. Vile is a character found inside the giant crocodile shaped hut in Bubblegloop Swamp. Fitting his name, he claims he is the meanest and greediest crocodile of them all. He challenges Banjo (as a crocodile) to try and eat more Yumblies and/or Grumblies than him. The prize after three rounds is a Jiggy, but all three rounds are slightly different.

  • In the first round, you must eat more Yumblies than Mr. Vile.
  • In the second round, you must eat more Yumblies while avoiding eating yellow Grumblies that will poison you.
  • In the third round, you must eat both the Yumblies or the Grumblies as indicated by whichever is at the top of the screen.

However, losing a round will cause Mr. Vile to try and chomp Banjo for 2 damage. For an easy, or less difficult, victory, use the Turbo Trainers. Once the Jiggy is earned, Mr. Vile offers a second challenge of playing three rounds for 3 Extra Lives at the cost of 1 life for a loss.

  • Mr. Vile:'ll have to catch Mr. Vile first!
  • Yowww! Greeny wins, here is prize!


  • If you collect 35 Yumblies, you can collect an Extra Life. 
  • Mr. Vile was the answer to one of Gruntilda's quiz questions, which was: Which Banjo Kazooie character wasn't seen in Banjo Tooie? The choices were Mr. Vile, Captain Blubber, and Tiptup.
  • If you are strugling to beat Mr. Vile in the first two rounds, there is a glitch/trick you can use. For about 10 seconds, don't eat any Yumblies. Mr. Vile will move slowly when going to eat the Yumblies, for whatever reason. When you start to eat the Yumblies, Mr. Vile will still be slow. You can then race to eat the Yumblies before he gets to them. You can eat the Grumblies in the second round at the beggining, it will have the same effect as waiting. Speed shoes will help if you want to get a lot more than Mr. Vile. The trick may not always work.
