* ButtMonkey: Quite a few. Kazooie seems to have it in for the universe. The universe retaliates by showing her no mercy. Gobi the camel is horribly abused by the main characters. Though, Bottles wins this one out. Killed, revived, and kicked out by his wife? Really?

* CanonDiscontinuity: ''Grunty's Revenge'', while originally meant to be an alternate follow-up directly from the first game, has since become an interquel, set between ''Kazooie'' and ''Tooie''. Despite this, it and ''Banjo Pilot'' are not acknowledged in ''Nuts & Bolts'', which Microsoft identifies as the third game in the series.
** As a side note, in the "L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges" ''DLC'', Kazooie describes the amount of games in the series as being "at least three".

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Banjo's sister Tooty, the DamselInDistress whose kidnapping drove the plot of the first game, is nowhere to be seen in ''Tooie'', except as a missing person on a giant milk carton in Cloud Cuckooland, and in a picture in Banjo's house (it is one of the few things in the house that wasn't completely destroyed). Hacking the game cartridge and early beta screens shows that at some point she was ''intended'' to be in the game, but no explanation for her disappearance has been offered aside from Rare's explanation that she was hauled off by the "Rubbish Video Game Characters Police". She's vaguely referenced in ''Nuts & Bolts'', such as for a store named "Tooty Fruity" and a joke about scrapped levels including "Tooty Land".
** Gruntilda's nicer sister Brentilda also vanished after the first game, aside from a portrait of her appearing in Pawno's Emporium. Her sisters don't even mention her.

* {{Cloudcuckooland}}: Though the entire setting of ''Banjo-Kazooie'' qualifies for this trope (see below), special mention goes to the stage ''named'' Cloud Cuckooland in ''Banjo-Tooie''.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: It's hard to find a character in these games who ''doesn't'' fit this trope. One of the stages is even ''called'' Cloud Cuckooland.

** Roysten, an extremely minor character who first appears in Banjo's fish bowl, is very often barbecued in the games in which he appeared. [[ThrowTheDogABone Not so]] in ''Nuts and Bolts'', though.

* NoFairCheating: There are three kinds of "Cheats" in the original: "Cheats" which are just item capacity upgrades, which you get from Cheato anyway, "Infinite Item" cheats which give you unlimited Feathers/Eggs/air/whatever, and special "Bypass" cheats that let you get through parts of Grunty's Lair. But be warned--using more than two of the "bypass"-style cheats will result in Grunty deleting the offending save file. It was a nasty surprise to any players who had seen Bottles' threats of this beforehand and [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt and assumed Grunty's would play out the same]], [[WhamEpisode only to be met with an empty save upon restarting the game.]] The Xbox Arcade remakes of both original games make it so inputting ANY CHEAT (barring ones from Cheato or Bottles) will turn off saving, achievements, and the leaderboards. Mercifully, Bottles and Jamjars will at least warn you if you want to go through with this.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In ''Tooie'', you can always visit [[PaperThinDisguise Madame Grunty]] in Witchyworld, even after he's defeated and reduced to a skull at the end of the game.

* DerivativeDifferentiation: The first game was a good ''SuperMario64'' clone, but after people tired of that particular formula, the later games diverged increasingly more, with ''Nuts & Bolts'' abandoning most of the PlatformGame hallmarks altogether.
