Nipper is a giant hermit crab found the game Banjo-Kazooie. He serves as the boss of Treasure Trove Cove.
When Banjo and Kazooie approach Nipper, he will claim that the beach they are on is his and will need his help if the hope to find their way around. However he gets annoyed by Kazooie's attitude and instead tries to attack them. Nipper can be defeated by either using Kazooie to peck at his eyes or perform the Wonder Wing ability. After the duo managed to defeat him, Banjo and Kazooie can enter his shell and find a Jiggy hidden inside, although Nipper is nowhere to be found.
