As soon as Banjo and Kazooie enter the doorway to this world, their greatest fears come to life as they encounter living gravestones, skeletons, and Gruntilda's haunted mansion. Mad Monster Mansion is the seventh world accessed from Gruntilda's Lair in Banjo-Kazooie. It is also the smallest world geographically in Banjo-Kazooie. However, it is one of the most difficult and complex.
