First appearance Banjo-Tooie (2000)

Drill Sergeant Jamjars appeared shortly after Bottles was "killed" by Gruntilda, his brother, Jamjars, took leave of Bottles' position to teach Banjo and Kazooie moves in Banjo-Tooie. In a way, he was more successful.


Jamjars basically replaces Bottles as the move-teacher in Banjo-Tooie. He shows a certain contempt for his brother, as well as Kazooie. Jamjars meets up with the duo in Mayahem Temple, and after hearing what happened, vows to help them save his brother. He teaches them many moves throughout the whole of the game, See His Moves Below.

He arrives at the party his sister in law prepared at the end of the game, only to find the food already eaten. So he, Banjo, Kazooie, Humba Wumba, and Mumbo Jumbo head back to Cauldron Keep play a game of catch with Gruntilda's head.

Jamjars is also one of the playable characters in the first person Shooting hunts in multiplayer mode. He shoots with a portly, unnamed, duck. It is unknown if it's his partner via Kazooie is Banjo's partner and Banjo shoots with Kazooie.

Jamjars uses mechanical Silos as opposed to Bottles mole hills, as he is said to be more high-tech. He also creates teleportation systems in every world.

His Moves



Jamjars taught way more moves than Bottles ever did, adding new eggs to Banjo's weapon list and such. He doesn't have a normal Mole hole, but a stainless steel hood cap that may be bomb-proof.

If the light at the top is red, it means he needs to teach something to Banjo and/or Kazooie. If it's green, he's already taught it.
