Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
“Please help me! Because if I die, your garden will smell of dead fish.”
Roysten is Banjo's pet goldfish. He appears in every game in the Banjo-Kazooie series, but is usually a minor background character (except in Banjo-Tooie), serving little purpose aside from showing up in humorous/dangerous situations.
In Banjo-Tooie, Roysten is knocked off the barbecue (although you can see him in Banjo's House in the introduction) when Gruntilda blows up Banjo's House and becomes trapped under a boulder that must be smashed using the Bill Drill ability.
Once Roysten has been rescued and released into the moat around Spiral Mountain, he teaches Banjo and Kazooie how to swim faster and increases their oxygen from 6 to 10 bubbles. When Mrs. Bottles makes Bottles eat his burnt dinner, Roysten can be seen on the plate blinking and burnt.
Roysten appears in the background of the trophy room inside his fishbowl.
Roysten appears in his fishbowl as a part in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, appears on the main menu, and is a Stop 'n' Swop part. The Stop 'n' Swop part is used only for decorational purposes and has no conventional use. (Note: Banjo-Kazooie for the Xbox Live Arcade is required to collect the Stop 'n' Swop items). This part is required to fully make the L.O.G. Banjo vehicle, one of two vehicles (Humba Boat 2) to have a Stop N' Swop part.
Roysten makes a cameo appearance in two other Rare titles, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, where he can be found in the Ghoulhaven Hall as an easter egg and tip his bowl much like he did in Banjo-Kazooie, and Viva Piñata, as a decorative item.
