“What's the party for? Grunty got away, so get back up there and finish the job!”
Tooty, Banjo-Kazooie

Tooty is the younger sister of Banjo and one of the main characters of the first game, Banjo-Kazooie. She is a happy, outgoing Honey Bear who loves adventuring. Tooty does not have a role in any other Banjo-Kazooie game and only has a few cameo appearances.

In Banjo-Kazooie, Tooty has the role of damsel-in-distress. Her first in-game appearance is during the opening, where she plays the piccolo.

The game starts with Gruntilda asking who is the prettiest in Spiral Mountain, to which Dingpot replies that it is Tooty. Enraged, Gruntilda sets off to go kidnap her. Meanwhile, Tooty happily runs up to a molehill in front of Banjo's House, which Bottles emerges from. She asks if he has seen Banjo because she wants to go on an adventure with him. Bottles points to someone in the sky, asking if that is her brother. The character is actually Gruntilda on her broomstick; she swoops down to kidnap Tooty and returns to her lair. Kazooie hears the commotion and urges Banjo to wake up, thus starting their adventure to rescue Tooty.

When Banjo and Kazooie enter Gruntilda's Lair, a cutscene plays, showing Tooty trembling inside a pod of the Beauty Steal Machine, which has a self-explanatory purpose in which Gruntilda tries to transfer Tooty's beauty to herself. Tooty screams for Banjo's help as Grunty closes the pod with Tooty in it.

At the end of Gruntilda's Lair, Banjo and Kazooie are forced into competing in a game show, Grunty's Furnace Fun. Tooty is the first prize of the show. When Banjo and Kazooie reach the end of the board, Grunty allows Tooty to leave with them, while she escapes to the Top of the Tower. At a celebratory barbecue outside Banjo's House, Tooty reminds Banjo and Kazooie that they must still return to Gruntilda's Lair to defeat Grunty entirely.

Tooty is last seen during the ending, in which she is sitting on the beach, eating a watermelon, while Banjo and Kazooie are relaxing.

Additionally, a picture of her can be seen inside Banjo's house.


Tooty's appearance on a milk carton in Banjo-Tooie.

In Banjo-Tooie, the picture of Tooty can be seen again inside the remains of Banjo's house, after the place is destroyed by Gruntilda's spell. Tooty also appears as a missing person on the poster of a milk carton inside Guffo's Rubbish Bin in Cloud Cuckooland.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts[edit]

In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, the picture of Tooty can be seen once again inside Banjo's house, much like in the previous games. In Showdown Town there is a shop named "Tooty Fruity - Fruit Shop". In one part of the game, L.O.G. mentions that he discarded a game world called "Tootyland". A team called "Tooty Angels" is mentioned in the Jiggosseum's scoreboard, where it is stated in the "Baseball" category that they scored 7 points and won against "Pikelet Brown Sox", who only scored 3 points. Lastly, Tooty's name is in some of the trivia questions at the end.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Tooty appears as a spirit. She also makes a cameo in the background of the Spiral Mountain stage, making it her first physical appearance since her debut in Banjo-Kazooie.

General information[edit]

Physical appearance[edit]

“Why, it's Tooty, young and small, she's the prettiest girl of all!”
Dingpot, Banjo-Kazooie

Described as "the prettiest girl of all" by Dingpot, Tooty is a brown honey bear with blond hair tied up in pigtails. She wears a red shirt with a star on it and a pair of purple stirrup pants. Tooty's speech icon shows her with green eyes, but her in-game model shows her with blue eyes. In the Xbox Live Arcade version, the star on Tooty's shirt appears to be missing its two lowest points.

During the game over sequence where Gruntilda takes away Tooty's beauty, she becomes a large, green monster with sharp teeth, red eyes, large, long arms and short legs, although the hair and pigtails stay the same as before. Due to her becoming bigger than normal, her clothes get stretched, exposing her stomach.


“Unfortunately I think you'll find, it's Tooty, she's cute and kind!”
Dingpot, Banjo-Kazooie

Tooty is a kind girl who likes to go on adventures with her older brother, Banjo. Unlike her brother, she likes to wander off outside instead of sleeping. She appears to be easily scared as shown in the start of Banjo-Kazooie, freezing in place and Gruntilda comes in her broomstick to kidnap her. Tooty is shown to like music, playing her piccolo both in the introduction cutscene of the game and when Gruntilda is looking at her through Dingpot.



  • In the canceled Project Dream, Tooty was named "Piccolo" and was planned to be Banjo's girlfriend.
  • Tooty's theme was based on Madeline's theme from the canceled Project Dream. The theme was changed from using an orchestra to a flute so that it matches Tooty's associated instrument.
  • According to the May 9, 2008 issue of Rare Scribes, Tooty was arrested by the "Rubbish Characters in Video Games" Police.[1]
