Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts:
- “Only kidding, let me find something with a challenge. Ahh... There's Topper. Whack him Banjo!”
- —Bottles, Banjo-Kazooie
Toppers are bouncing, eyed carrots that are enemies on Spiral Mountain in Banjo-Kazooie. Initially, one appears for Bottles to teach the Claw Swipe ability to Banjo. This one just hops in place, waiting to be attacked, and bounces Banjo backwards with no damage when touched. After all of the initial attack moves are learned, Toppers begin to appear elsewhere in Spiral Mountain, along with Bawls and a Colliwobble. Unlike the first Topper, these Toppers slowly hop towards Banjo and deal damage upon contact. A single Topper appears in the ending sequence as Banjo and Kazooie leave Grunty's Lair, and is defeated by Banjo after Kazooie points it out. Topper's name is a possible reference to Carrot Top. Kazooie calls a Topper "carrot guy" in the cutscene after completing Grunty's Furnace Fun.
- According to the May 9, 2008 issue of Rare Scribes, Topper and the other tutorial vegetables were all arrested by the "Rubbish Characters in Video Games" Police.
