Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
Making their debut in the original Banjo-Kazooie, they were one of the five Jinjos needed to be collected in each world. They were notable for being the only Jinjo color to appear on the cover art of the game, being held by Banjo as he escaped from Gruntilda and her baddies.
In Banjo-Pilot, the Purple Jinjo was a playable character, with only one point of top speed, but four points of acceleration and five points of handling, making him best for courses where a lot of weaving is required, but ill suited to courses with long straightways.
In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Purple Jinjos are one of the many Jinjos in the game that can be found in certain worlds and have a challenge for Banjo. If Banjo completes the challenge, he is rewarded with a Jinjo Token.
- In Banjo Kazooie, they were most likely referred as Pink Jinjos, but until Banjo Tooie, they were finally known as purple Jinjos.
