Appearances in video games
Clanker makes his debut in Banjo-Kazooie and owns his own area called Clanker's Cavern. He also has red "wounds" on his sides. During the game, Clanker is stuck to a chain and requests the help of Banjo and Kazooie to be freed from the chain. Banjo has to swim in the shape of a key three times to free Clanker so he can give him a Jiggy. If you fix his teeth, you can go in to see if there is another Jiggy inside. And Banjo can gain access to his gills if Clanker's mouth is opened or his blowhole if the bolt clears off him. You can stand on the bolt and Clanker fires up so you can get one of the Jiggies.

- In the beta version of Banjo-Kazooie, Clanker seems to be a biological whale rather than a mechanical one..
- Clanker's voice is actually extremely slowed down Banjo audio samples.
