Captain Blackeye's sprite from Banjo-Tooie.
|First appearance||Banjo-Tooie (2000)|
Captain Blackeye is a curious character who sits in the back room at Jolly Roger's Lagoon in Banjo-Tooie. He appears to be a pirate, and he can be seen being heavily drunk and despondent. Blackeye rants continuously about how a bear who looked like Banjo stole his glory. He appears to be the same individual seen in pictures in Mad Monster Mansion, albeit a bit more haggard. He is also rumored to be linked to the mysterious Stop 'n' Swop. One of his infamous remarks is "I had a Dream once...." The project name for Banjo-Kazooie was in fact Dream, so this causes many to believe that before Rare thought of making Banjo-Kazooie into a game, they would have a pirate game starring Captain Blackeye. Nintendo however mentions him on their official site for Banjo-Kazooie. Captain Blackeye is also suggested to be the owner of the Rusty Bucket in Rusty Bucket Bay.
His purpose in Banjo-Tooie, however, is very minor. If the player talks to him three times, he threatens to defeat Banjo and Kazooie if they do it again. On the fourth attempt, he attempts to (as implied by his dialogue), but he's too seasick so he gives Banjo and Kazooie two doubloons to fetch him a glass of water, but then he faints in a comical fashion, and can still be talked to as he spouts off his infamous remarks.
- According to Grant Kirkhope, he used to have a ship called the "Mudplugger".
