Break the Click Clock Wood boulder

It is possible to break the boulder blocking the Beaver's hole in Click Clock Wood on the Spring level. Stand on the ledge above the rock, then find the correct angle just to the right of the rock. Drop eggs onto the boulder to break it open. Then, swim into the hole on this level to find some glitches, such as the Beaver still asking you to move the now destroyed rock.

Extra lives in Mr. Vile's games

With Mumbo's help, turn into an alligator in the Bubblegloop Swamp. Then, enter the nose of the giant alligator statue. Now beat Mr. Vile at his games to get a puzzle piece, then leave and re-enter for a new challenge. Beat Mr. Vile in his three games to earn extra lives. Note: If you lose any of the games, you will lose a life.

Get the Ice Key

Note: This trick requires a Game Shark or Pro Action Replay cartridge. Enable the "Moon Jump" code (D0281251 0020 + 8137C4BC 43E0). Then, go to the Ice Cave and press L to fly over the wall and take the Ice Key. Kazooie will say something similar to "We better keep this for later". Pause the game, look under "View Totals", then press Analog-stick Right to scroll through the level statistics. The screen will eventually stop at the Ice Key below the text "Stop n' Swop".

Stay as transformed animal

Note: This trick requires a Game Shark or Pro Action Replay cartridge. Enable the "Moon Jump" code (D0281251 0020 + 8137C4BC 43E0). As an animal, exit the area that was being explored and hold L when the "Mumbo Magic Get Weak" message appears. Do not touch the ground and go through the door. Then, Banjo-Kazooie will still be in the shape of that animal and can explore other areas with that form.
