“Mmmm... I'm sticky tasty honey energy!”
—A Honeycomb, Banjo-Kazooie
Honeycombs are used in the Banjo-Kazooie series as the player's life bar. Usually, being hurt by an enemy or damaging terrain causes Banjo and/or Kazooie to lose a honeycomb (more can be lost at once from certain enemies and fall damage). Honeycombs can be replenished by collecting some from fallen enemies (usually one at a time) and Beehives.
Banjo and Kazooie's maximum honeycomb capacity can increase. Extra Honeycomb Pieces can be collected to increase the duo's honeycomb capacity, and the final puzzle in Banjo-Kazooie allows Banjo and Kazooie's energy bar to double in size. Different transformations in Banjo-Tooie also have differently-sized energy bars, as do Banjo and Kazooie when they split-up.
