Snacker, Banjo-Kazooie

Snacker is an enemy and a character in Banjo-Kazooie.


Snacker is first encountered in Treasure Trove Cove. He is not seen unless Banjo starts swimming in the water, causing Snacker to emerge from nowhere and start to swim after Banjo. During this, music reminiscent of the Jaws theme starts playing. Snacker also appears in Rusty Bucket Bay, in the waters of a fenced-in area, but unlike Treasure Trove Cove, Snacker has no lines. Snacker swims slightly faster than Banjo and Kazooie. They can outrun Snacker by repeatedly jumping in and out of the water, performing a Feathery Flap each time. When Banjo and Kazooie reach land, Snacker gives up chasing them and disappears back into the water. Snacker can be defeated from either a Wonderwing attack or if Kazooie fires several eggs at him from behind. If defeated, Snacker releases three honeycombs. Snacker can only be defeated temporarily, because after a while, he starts to chase Banjo and Kazooie again.

Collectibles near Snacker in Treasure Trove Cove include the Blue Jinjo and both Extra Honeycomb Pieces, while in Rusty Bucket Bay, it is near the Yellow Jinjo and the underwater entrance to a building with an Extra Honeycomb Piece.

In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Snacker is referenced on the billboard of a ship outside the Terrarium of Terror. It reads "Snacker's Loans," which is a play on the term "loan shark." The text also has other lines of text, like "500& A.P.R.," "Buy Ghoulies 2" and "All suckers considered."

Other appearances[edit]

In Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise, it is stated in the description of the Shark Tooth Necklace that a Fizzlybear once went to Treasure Trove Cove and fought Snacker to get it.
