* ItWasHisSled: There is a fifth world, Future Funland. You get there by having 1st place trophies in the four worlds and colliding with the signpost placard that displays them.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZH82T3Ht4M This cutscene]] that plays when you go back out into the main hub area after collecting all the pieces of the Wizpig Amulet. In short, the giant stone head of Wizpig in the hub world ''comes alive and begins laughing medically'' after being restored to full flesh before giving the camera, which is slowly zooming in on the eyes, a DeathGlare.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: It is rather easy to trigger dialogue with T.T. as he's wandering about the level hubs, even if you don't intend to. Especially pesky in the DS version, where he doesn't actually do anything ''useful'' besides make comments.

* ChristmasRushed: The game got this treatment, but for good reason. After ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' got delayed to summer 1998, Rare had to have ''some'' triple-A game to put out around the Christmas 1997 season, and the game they had at that point (which was miles away from the game you're reading an article about now) was revised extensively and ultimately published around mid-to-late November. According to general consensus, [[TropesAreNotBad the rushed state of the game did very little to hinder the actual playing experience]].



* ObviousBeta: A very rare (no pun intended) example of this ''not'' having any real negative effect on the game's enjoyability. The game was rushed to market so that Rare could have ''something'' out for Christmas 1997, and numerous signs of this are left in the game, including the fact that attaining OneHundredPercentCompletion requires two save slots (one for the normal adventure and one for [[NewGamePlus "Adventure 2"]]) and several not-quite-functional elements accessible via in-game cheats, including [[WhatCouldHaveBeen a 2-player Adventure mode]] and a rather-broken sound test (all music tracks are only listed as numbers, are in no real order, include some beta elements, and exclude some music heard in the final game, and the VariableMix tracks do not have their individual versions listenable - only a mash-up of all versions at once). The core game itself is complete, however - many of the ObviousBeta elements are side-features that aren't in any way necessary to enjoy the game itself.
** This could also explain why Bubbler the Octopus is the only boss ''not'' seen in the ending.

* GameBreaker: If you unlock [[spoiler: T.T.]], practically every race becomes a joke. Thankfully when put into the hands of a computer, he drives at a much lower top speed.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSAlLkgu8zE The Acceleration Glitch]] is a GoodBadBug that allows you to go faster than your normal top speed. It allows you to take down certain bosses (and clear certain T.T. times) with ease.

*** There's also a special acceleration trick which only works on cars. Due to the immediate acceleration bump when you press the A button being so great with cars that it can override the designated top speed, repeatedly tapping the A button can make you go up to 10 mph faster than you're supposed to. This doesn't work with hovercrafts or airplanes, however, or when you're driving a car on off-track terrain, and seems to be a glitch since you're never told about it as an actual hint.

** Also Tiptup, who had ''slightly'' higher top speed and ''slightly'' lower acceleration and handling, and went on to cameo in BanjoKazooie ([[YourSizeMayVary where, contrary to this game, he is considerably bigger than Banjo.]])

* {{Padding}}: One gets this feeling given that the single player mode requires you to, for each world, race on all the tracks, beat the boss, collect silver coins in each track, beat the boss again, and then face Wizpig when this has been done with all worlds. If you want the real ending, you need to enter a grand prix to win a trophy in each world, beat the bosses ''again'', and rinse and repeat the initial and coin races in a new world before facing Wizpig one more time.
