Water Raise Switch
The Water Raise Switches are three switches in Banjo-Kazooie, used for raising the water level in certain areas of Gruntilda's Lair. The first two switches' effects are permanent, and allow Banjo and Kazooie to reach more areas inside the lair.
The first switch is inside the hut with the cracked door behind the iron gate near Mad Monster Mansion's entrance. It allows access to Rusty Bucket Bay, as well as the path leading to Click Clock Wood.
The second switch is opposite Rusty Bucket Bay. It allows access to an alcove where a Jiggy appears if said level's Witch Switch has been pressed.
The third and final switch is in the first room after the 450 Note Door. Unlike the other two switches, this one is temporary, only working for 30 seconds at a time. It allows access to a high alcove in the Rusty Bucket Bay entrance room, leading to one of Cheato's hiding spots.
A wire mesh divides the Mad Monster Mansion puzzle area and the Rusty Bucket Bay puzzle area. It is only possible to reach and smash this if only the first switch has been pressed, because after the second switch has been pressed the mesh goes under water, leaving it indestructible.
