A Mumbo Token, Banjo-Kazooie

A Mumbo Token is a collectible item found throughout the worlds in Banjo-Kazooie. They resemble Mumbo's skull in a silver tint. They are additonally referred to as Shaman's Tokens in Grunty's Furnace Fun and Mumbo Totems in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge.

Gruntilda stole these small, silver skulls from Mumbo Jumbo and scattered them throughout various worlds and in her lair. Banjo and Kazooie must collect them and return them to Mumbo Jumbo. In exchange, Mumbo will offer his services by transforming them into an object or animal that matches the particular world's theme. A sign inside Mumbo's Skull will dictate how many tokens each transformation spell costs, and once a spell has been paid for (in increments of five), the pair can use it as many times as they need.

There are a total of 116 Mumbo Tokens throughout the whole game, though only 75 are needed, and only 115 are collectible in any given save file. This is due to a mistake in event flags, where two of the Mumbo Tokens in Mad Monster Mansion (specifically, the one in the septic tank and the one in the cellar) have the same flag number, meaning that collecting one causes both to disappear, only adding one to the counter.

In Banjo-Tooie, Mumbo Tokens are not present, having been replaced by Glowbos. Early pre-release versions of the game, however, have Humba Wumba accepting them. In the final, the image for the out-of-order "Flume of Doom" attraction outside Witchyworld uses red-eyed Mumbo Tokens for the "o"s in "Doom."

In Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, Banjo receives small, skull-shaped pieces of magic from defeating Mecha-Grunty and Klungo at various mini-boss fights throughout the game. Mumbo would accept these as a new totem for him in exchange for transforming Banjo into a new form.

Trivia[edit]

  • In their artwork for the Nintendo Player's guide, Mumbo Tokens have distinctly larger eyes than they do in the games.
