Jiggywikki has moved off Banjo-Kazooie FANDOM. The articles, images, and categories are still being reworked for Jiggywikki.
Additionally, many of the articles have previously contained speculative or inaccurate information, both of which are not tolerated on a factual wiki. If anyone is caught adding this type of information, it will immediately be removed. Do not take artwork from DK Vine, because they were edited with Photoshop.

Unconfirmed yet considerable facts can be added, but only if explicitly mentioned as a possibility backed by evidence, such as reliable sources. For example, Rare Scribes, official Twitter accounts, or even video interviews are trustworthy because they qualify as primary sources.

Roysten, Banjo-Tooie

Roysten is Banjo's pet goldfish. He is usually a minor character, who serves little purpose aside from showing up in dangerous situations.



He appears on a shelf in Banjo's House swimming around unhappily, then tapping the glass of his cramped bowl. Near the end of the game, Mumbo Jumbo is seen grilling Roysten on a barbecue.


In Banjo-Tooie, Roysten is knocked off the barbecue (although you can see him in Banjo's House in the introduction) when Gruntilda blows up Banjo's House and gets trapped under a boulder that must be smashed using the Bill Drill ability.

Once Roysten has been rescued and released into the moat around Spiral Mountain, he teaches Banjo and Kazooie how to swim faster and increases their oxygen from 6 to 10 bubbles. When Mrs. Bottles makes Bottles eat his burnt dinner, Roysten can be seen on the plate blinking and burnt.

Interestingly enough, while he is seen on Bottles' plate, Roysten is the only character never named in the Character Parade.

Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge[edit]

Roysten makes a cameo appearance in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, still stuck on the barbecue from Banjo-Kazooie (as the events of this game take place between Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie).


Roysten makes a cameo on a shelf in the trophy room, where the player can see their achievement ribbons and trophies.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts[edit]

Roysten appears in his fishbowl as a part in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, appears on the main menu, and is a Stop 'n' Swop part. The Stop 'n' Swop part is used only for decorational purposes and has no conventional use. (Note: Banjo-Kazooie for the Xbox Live Arcade is required to collect the Stop 'n' Swop items). This part is required to fully make the L.O.G. Banjo vehicle, one of two vehicles (Humba Boat 2) to have a Stop N' Swop part.

Other appearances[edit]

Roysten makes a cameo appearance in two other Rare titles, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, where he can be found in the Ghoulhaven Hall as an easter egg and tip his bowl much like he did in Banjo-Kazooie and Viva Piñata, as a decorative item.


  • Roysten has blue eyes in every Banjo-Kazooie game except Banjo-Pilot, where he has orange and red eyes.
  • In Banjo-Tooie, Roysten appears in Banjo's house during the card game with Bottles and Mumbo Jumbo. However, after Grunty attacks the house and Banjo steps outside, you find that Roysten is stuck under a rock, claiming that he fell there from Mumbo's barbecue at the end of Banjo-Kazooie.
