The Rocknut Tribe is a Tribe of armor-clad cavemen enemies in Banjo-Tooie. They are found in Terrydactyland, and there is a total of five Rocknuts scattered throughout the level. The Rocknuts will attack Banjo and Kazooie with their clubs if they get too close to them. But since they don't move much, except to turn around, this is easy to avoid. Their armor is immune to every attack in the game, but they only wear it on the front of themselves, so shooting a Clockwork Kazooie Egg behind them will defeat them. After all five are defeated, the duo get a Jiggy, which the Rocknuts call a "shiny rock".
Rocknuts are husky, yet inventive, cavemen with large noses, buckteeth, and unshaven features. They also seem to have large protruding chins. They wear dull lime-green padding that cover parts of their arms, bodies, and heads. Aside from their armor, they also carry around mace-like clubs.
Althoug the Rocknuts were advanced enough to create armor, they are notably uncivilized and crude. As they just stand around, they primitively strike themselves in the head with their clubs. Their rear ends also show in the gap of their armor.
