Honeycombs Banjo-Kazooie Item Honey energy.png Since Banjo is a honey bear, health is measured in honey. When you find honeycombs, you will restore your health.
Mumbo Tokens Collect these tokens and give them to Mumbo to transform into different objects or animals. Go to Mumbo's hut to see how many tokens you need.
Molehills If you find a molehill you can learn new moves from Bottles. These are very important to have so search intently.
Entrance/Exit Pad The Entrance/Exit Pad will teleport you into or out of a level. It is important you remember where it is when you enter a level.
Golden Banjos When you collect a Golden Banjo, you get an extra life. There are a few hidden in each level.
Beehives Beehives are easy to spot because they look like beehives with eyes. When you attack one, you get 3 honeycomb pieces. Sometimes, they will have bees, so be careful!
Witch Switches In a level, you can find a switch with grunty's face on it. Slam on it to unlock a Jiggy inside Grunty's Lair that you can go collect later.

Collection items[edit]

These are items that are required to progress through Banjo-Kazooie and are also used to measure how complete a level is.
