* TheUnfought: In ''Kazooie'', the duo never even ''meets'' the guy. Subverted in ''Tooie''.

* ConfrontingYourImposter: Subverted. Mingy's boss fight will only trigger if you're playing as Banjo and Kazooie. If you try to fight him as the real Mumbo, he'll just stay asleep in his chair. Even zapping him in this state has no effect.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Enough to even get a lampshade from Rare, explaining that her reason for not appearing in ''Nuts and Bolts'' was because she was hauled off by the "Rubbish Video Game Characters Police". Her absence was also lampshaded in ''Tooie'' where her face is seen on a milk carton.

* AscendedExtra: He has a very minor role in the first game, where he only appears in part of the intro, the GameOver screen, and the ending when he tries in vain to free Grunty; the duo never even meets him. In ''Tooie'', not only is he a RecurringBoss, but he also gets more screentime and characterization.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: When he drinks his red-colored growth potion. He attacks via GroundPound.

characterization. Taken even further in ''Nuts & Bolts'' where not only is he a more recurring NPC, but he also has his own mini-game that can land you some extra notes.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: When he drinks his red-colored growth potion.potion in the first fight with him. He attacks via GroundPound.



* DoppelgangerAttack: When he drinks his blue-colored duplication potion. He splits into two clones at the start of the fight, three after being hit once, and four after being hit twice. But in all cases, the real Klungo is the last one to spawn.
* HeelFaceTurn: After getting one beating too many from Grunty, getting beaten one last time by Banjo, as well as by suggestion of the latter, Klungo finally leaves Grunty's side.

* {{Invisibility}}: When he drinks his green-colored vanishing potion. It's not a perfect formula, however, so at times he'll be mildly visible.

* HypercompetentSidekick: Note that Banjo's not incompetent, but Kazooie ''is'' responsible for the majority of the moves the two share. As such, she also maintains most of the learned moves when the two split up, while Banjo has to learn moves before he can do anything but ''run and jump.'' (It should be noted that going by the first game, Banjo should have an A attack. This move was removed and replaced with one relying on Kazooie.)

* DistaffCounterpart: To Mumbo Jumbo.

** She also despises cheating, and she watches for you to type three Grunty's Code Vengeance-compatible codes in the sandcastle of Treasure Trove Cove. If you go ahead with the third and final cheat anyway...
--->'''Grunty''': Now I will erase your Game Pak, because you had the need to hack!

* SitcomArchNemesis: Mumbo's.

to:

* SitcomArchNemesis: Mumbo's. She argues she's a professional magician and Mumbo is only an amateur.



* BadBoss: Shows strong shades of this in ''Tooie''. Every time Klungo is beaten by Banjo and Kazooie, she beats him senseless, resulting in him getting more and more bruised and battered as the game goes on, eventually leading to Klungo pulling a HeelFaceTurn. Furthermore, she kills Mingella and Blobbelda, her ''own sisters'' for losing to Banjo in the Tower of Tragedy Quiz.

* TimeLimitBoss: If King Coal isn't defeated in 150 seconds or less, he will perform the HeatWave on a ''permanent basis''. Not only will the lower floor remain hot forever, but the air meter of Banjo and Kazooie will start decreasing until it reaches zero, at which point they will lose life energy until they die (they can avoid that fate if they manage to defeat King Coal in time, though).

* INeverSaidItWasPoison: Averted, because Banjo doesn't get to realize Mingy is an impostor before the fight as he doesn't get the two important hints: That Mingy calls him Banjo (the real Mumbo, as well as Humba, ''always'' refer to him as "bear", and to Kazooie as "bird"); and that he doesn't ask them whether they have a Glowbo or not (Glowbos are necessary for Mumbo and Humba to lend their services). There is a third clue only visible from an out of universe perspective. Mumbo only napped in his chair in the first game.... [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also the torchs in the hut aren't lit]] so he can use them in his attack pattern.

* EarlyBirdCameo: Banjo's first appearance was actually in VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing (although Kazooie does not appear in game, she is mentioned in the manual).
* FunetikAksent: Has an exaggerated southern voice, judging from his sole line of dialogue in DiddyKongRacing. His normal in-game grunts are more falsetto-esque.

* WitchClassic: of the WitchWitch variety. She plays this trope straight full-on. She wears black clothes and a pointy hat, rides a broomstick, uses magic as her primary method of attack, has three sisters (one of whom is a FairyGodmother), [[RhymesOnADime talks in rhyme]] (except in ''Banjo-Tooie'' at the request of an annoyed Mingella and Blobbelda), and owns a cat named Piddles in ''Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts''.
