Nipper is a minor villain in the first Banjo-Kazooie game. He is the mini boss of Treasure Trove Cove.


Nipper is a giant hermit crab that attacked Banjo and Kazooie. Nipper can only be defeated by Kazooie pecking his eyes out. After the duo managed to defeat him, Banjo and Kazooie go inside his shell and managed to find a Jiggy hidden in there. But despite Nipper going in his shell after his defeat, Nipper is nowhere to be found.


  • He boss theme is a remix of the Treasure Trove Cove theme (with some minor adjustments).
