A picture of Clanker in Banjo Kazooie.
|Series Appearances||Banjo Kazooie, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts|
|Appearance||Silver, metalic, steel.|
There is a big debate among fans of Banjo-Kazooie as to whether Clanker is a metallic shark or whale. He mostly looks like a shark except for the blow hole, and a whale doesn't have gills either. Clanker then must be a metallic hybrid. Some fans have settled upon the simplest of explanations; Clanker is a Whale-Shark. But in one of the questions in Tower of Tragedy Quiz asking who guards the Big Top Tent in Witchyworld (Conga is the correct answer), an incorrect answer is "Clanker the whale", which means he is most likely to be a whale rather than a shark.
Clanker hates the dirty water he swims in and asks Banjo-Kazooie to help his toothache and to help him breathe fresh air. If you help him he rewards you with jiggies. He holds almost half of the level's jiggies.
A little known fact about Clanker is that Grunty uses him as a garbage disposal.
In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Clanker was dissassembled to fit into L.O.G's Banjo Land exhibit. A spare second jaw is mounted on a wall, his tail section serves as a ramp up to the Gobi's desert pyramid, and his head is half encased in glass, leaving his eyes the only part of him that move. A jiggy centers around protecting poor Clanker from Grunt Bots. It is to be noted that Clanker has life support tubes connecting to his head.
