Mumbo's StoryEdit

Mumbo Jumbo

Mumbo Jumbo the Shaman

Mumbo Jumbo is known as Isle o Hag's local shaman. He first appeared in Banjo-Kazooie, where he transformed Banjo into various different things in return for a few Mumbo Tokens. In Banjo-Tooie, he sits around in his skull, sleeping, until Banjo and Kazooie come along in need of his services. He is used to do certain things that the duo cannot, such as moving rocks, causing rain, bringing people back to life, moving large objects, and more. He also doesn't accept Mumbo Tokens anymore, now he need a rare magic creature called a Glowbo to use his spells on clearly marked Mumbo Pads through the game's worlds.


  • It is unclear what species Mumbo is, as he has a skull for a head, and a pink scaly body. In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, Mumbo juggles his eyeballs when you talk to him occasionally, suggesting that he is not human.
  • Mumbo carries a magic stick that resembles a tazer, making enemies shake uncontrollably when they are struck by it.
