Diddy Kong RacingEdit
Banjo first appears in Diddy Kong Racing as one of the characters whom are playable in the game.
In the game's events, Banjo had been called by Timber to help save his island from the evil galactic invader, Wizpig whom had been trying to rule the area. They then all wanted to be the big hero in the game by wanting to be the one whom has stopped Wizpig in his trails of invading the area. He, along with his pals, manage to defeat Wizpig in a race twice and send him onto a deserted planet in space where he demands revenge. Then, Timber's Island has a party with every resident and playable character being in it.
Banjo lacks high acceleration, but has high speed and average handling skills.

- Along with Conker, they both do not reappear in the remake, Diddy Kong Racing DS, due to copyright issues concerning that the characters belong to Rare. Strangely, Tiptup is a Rare-licensed character, but reappears in the DS remake. His theme, along with Conker's, can still be heard in the background music though.
