Tanktup, Banjo-Kazooie

Tanktup is a large turtle who lived in Bubblegloop Swamp (though his current whereabouts are unknown), where he housed Tiptup and his choir inside his shell.



In Banjo-Kazooie, Tanktup is found in Bubblegloop Swamp, complaining about how his feet are numb and cold. Banjo and Kazooie can help him by using the Beak Buster move in them, causing the feet to retract back inside Tanktup's shell. He then thanks the two and rewards them with a Jiggy that comes out of his mouth. Once it is collected, the pair can also enter his mouth to find Tiptup and his choir practicing.

Four Musical Notes can be found on Tanktup, atop each feet. A pair of Wading Boots, which can be used to rescue an orange Jinjo nearby, can also be worn above his shell.

Tanktup is also featured in the Xbox 360 theme of the Xbox Live Arcade release of Banjo-Kazooie.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts[edit]

Banjo and Kazooie could enter Tanktup in Bubblegloop Swamp once they'd warmed his feet and he'd barfed up a Jiggy. This is just a wooden effigy, as Tanktup's whereabouts are currently unknown.”
Infopost, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, a wooden effigy of Tanktup can be found as an exhibit in an underwater area of Banjoland, near the Salty Hippo and U.F.O. exhibits.
