 Gobi's Valley is the sixth world accessed from Gruntilda's Lair in Banjo-Kazooie. This level features three pyramids, a sphinx, and even a giant golden Kazooie statue. This is the first of two levels (the other being Click Clock Wood), to feature Gobi, a camel who ends up hating you as you use the Beak Buster on his hump and take his stuff.

In this world, Bottles teaches the bear and bird how to use the Turbo Trainers for the Turbo Talon Trot. This ends up being the final move learned in the game.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

King Sandybutt's Tomb appears in Banjoland as its own segment, and is connected to parts of Clanker and the Freezeezy Peak snowman. As stated in the information below, it was torn out of Gobi's Valley by L.O.G to use in Banjoland, and it is quite clear that King Sandybutt was not pleased. This also proves that King Sandybutt is still alive, and he may have moved elsewhere.

Banjoland Info

"Pyramid. This pyramid was torn out of Gobi's Valley in Banjo-Kazooie, much to the chagrin of its owner, King Sandybutt. L.O.G decided to bring it back to exploit its handy sloping sides."


Gobi's Valley is a track in Banjo-Pilot is based off of Gobi's Valley. There are several pyramids that can be seen in the background as well as Jinxy. Gobi can also be seen on the course as an obstacle.
