Pumpkin Banjo

Pumpkin Banjo is a transformation that turns Banjo into a pumpkin. It is featured throughout Mad Monster Mansion in Banjo-Kazooie.



The pumpkin transformation does not grant any unique ability or attack, but its small size can allow Banjo and Kazooie to enter previously-inaccessible small entrances. This transformation can carry over into the hub in Gruntilda's Lair, which has a shack that can only be entered from the pumpkin transformation. It is also required for squeezing through a hole behind Brentilda in the lava-filled room just before the Mad Monster Mansion hub.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts[edit]

A model of Pumpkin Banjo makes a brief cameo in Banjoland of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. Additionally, in the game's intro, L.O.G. transformed Gruntilda into a pumpkin.



  • Through glitching, the pumpkin can be used in Gobi's valley to glitch through the locked door and get the Blue Mystery Egg.
  • The Pumpkin may roam as far as the Gobi's Valley Picture in the Lava Room of Gruntilda's Lair, where Mumbo's magic runs out immediately after the puzzle. This is the longest range from the native level to the automatic transformation reversal.
