The Nintendo 64 is a home console manufactured and released by Nintendo. Their former second-party developer, Rare Ltd., developed many games for this console, including the first two Banjo-Kazooie series titles, Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie. However, Banjo first appeared in another Nintendo 64 game, Diddy Kong Racing, from where the Banjo-Kazoooie franchise spun off from.
- In Banjo-Tooie, a Nintendo 64 unit is shown on a table for the file select menu. In the Xbox Live Arcade port, the N logo was removed. If it is selected, the Multiplayer mode is entered. The in-game unit would also reflect whether the player connected any additional controllers to the actual unit.
- In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, during the introduction sequence when Kazooie is playing with her Xbox 360, a prop besides the television resembling a dusty Nintendo 64 can be seen. Its controller wires were wrapped around the middle, most likely to obscure the centered logo. A Nintendo 64 was also originally intended to be placed in the spot of Banjoland where the Old King Coal statue is located but was likely changed due to legal reasons.
