The hero of the Banjo-Kazooie games, Banjo is a gullible, lazy being who, unless forced to go on an adventure, is usually just laying around Spiral Mountain, sleeping, eating, or playing video games.
Banjo is also accompanied by Kazooie, a snarky, mean-spirited sidekick. Most of the time, she resides in Banjo's backpack, although Banjo-Tooie (second installment) finally allows her to trek outside of it. Together they go on numerous adventures to stop the evil witch Gruntilda from succeeding with her next evil plan.

Attack Potency: At least Multi-City Block level+ (Harmed Gruntilda. Banjo and Kazooie have directly fought the HAG-1 which created earthquakes powerful enough to shake Banjo's house from hundreds of meters away violently enough to cause Mumbo Jumbo to fall from his chair, and likely cause rubble to fall in Gruntilda's lair, which should make it at least a Magnitude 5 earthquake. Comparable to Gruntilda, who completely blew up the Hag-1 by accident and who could tank this without seeming to be harmed), higher with Grenade Eggs (They deal 3x as much damage to enemies, including Gruntilda, than regular eggs), likely Town level (Can harm other characters with similar durability to themselves) | At least Multi-City Block level+, possibly Town level via vehicle (Was able to destroy Grunty's Vehicle which had enough power to destroy Spiral Mountain, could directly harm Gruntilda.
