Diddy Kong Racing DS
Jolly Roger's Lagoon
Tiptup is a turtle first found in Bubblegloop Swamp in Banjo-Kazooie. He directs his own choir of singing turtles inside Tanktup's Shell and rewards Banjo with a Jiggy if he can complete Tiptup's challenge. Although Tanktup's shell can be re-entered at any time, Tiptup and his choir disappear when Banjo leaves after completing the challenge.
Tiptup makes another appearance in Banjo-Tooie, although his voice has become surprisingly higher. He can be found in Jolly Roger's Lagoon where he is on display as a tourist attraction in Turtle View Cave. His choir is nowhere to be seen, but he is accompanied by a small pink egg which contains his unborn son - or so he hopes, as he apparently already has nineteen daughters. Unfortunately, the egg is months late in hatching, and Tiptup cannot do anything himself to help it along, so it's up to Kazooie. Kazooie must use the Split-up Pads in the town center and hatch the egg. The baby turtle is able to free himself from the egg shell once it has cracked open, only to roll over onto his back, requiring Kazooie to right him up by attacking in some form. Once all is said and done, Tiptup and his son, later dubbed Tiptup Jr., depart for the ocean, but not before leaving a Jiggy behind for Kazooie.
Although Tiptup is considered a character of the Banjo-Kazooie series, he made his first appearance alongside Banjo as a racer in Diddy Kong Racing, which was released a few months before Banjo-Kazooie. Tiptup also reappears in Diddy Kong Racing DS, even if Banjo doesn't. The reason he reappears in the remake may be because he is a minor character in the Banjo-Kazooie series.
