Whiplash is a regular enemy appearing in the Banjo-Kazooie series that resembles a worm-like tentacle sticking out of the ground. They first appeared in Banjo-Kazooie in one level but return in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge as the most common basic enemy.



Whiplash first appears in Banjo-Kazooie found in Clanker's Cavern where he is found inside Clanker while underwater and appears to be a parasite of some sort. He is colored gray with a red base. When Banjo gets to close it will whip at him and cause one honeycomb of damage. Whiplash cannot be destroyed.

Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge

Whiplash returns in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge and is much more common being the first enemy encountered. They now appear on land and water in almost every level though they still can't move and are now easily destroyed by any attack. They are also pink. Some can be found hiding under piles of twigs. In later levels green ones are found in polluted or dangerous water.


A green Whiplash makes a cameo appearance in the Winner's Circle in Banjo-Pilot.
