|Effect||Increases Banjo's current health.|
Honeycombs are a source of health in all of the Banjo Kazooie games. Honeycombs can be found laying randomly on the ground, hidden inside enemies, or found in special locations such as a Beehive. In Banjo Tooie, honeycombs can also be found inside special beehives. It is essential to keep your Honeycomb Meter as high as you can to prevent Banjo from fainting and having to restart the game.
There are 4 different types of Honeycombs in Banjo Tooie.
Regular Honeycomb: These are the most common types of Honeycombs. They will replenish your Honeycomb meter up only by one. They are usually found after defeating a few enemies.
Skill Honeycomb: Skill Honeycombs are less common than Regular Honeycombs. The Honeycomb meter will flash one by one past the amount you want to heal/hurt yourself. If you are quick enough to press the B Button on time to stop the meter at the full gauge, then you will receive a maximum supply of Honeycombs to heal you fully.
Mystery Honeycomb: This type of Honeycomb is very similar to the Skill Honeycomb. Instead of the gauge flashes in order, and it will flash at different times. This one is trickier and it is easier to land on the flash which actually lowers your Honeycomb gauge. You must be quick if you want to receive a benefit from this Honeycomb. Tap the B Button lightly to stop the gauge from flashing to determine whether your Honeycomb gauge will go up or down.

Empty Honeycombs: Empty Honeycombs are the rarest out of all of the Honeycombs. In Banjo-Kazooie, once Banjo collects six empty honeycombs, he will automatically get an extra slot of health. In Banjo Tooie, if he collects enough Honeycombs, then Honey B will give him another Honeycomb to add to your gauge so that you can have a higher health supply. These rare honeycombs can be found in each world in the game.
 Honey B
Honey B is a sweet bee who lives in a large beehive. She will exchange all Empty Honeycombs for an extra Honeycomb to be added to your gauge to increase your health. Her demands for Empty Honeycombs will rise as you give her them, and as your health increases, the more Empty Honeycombs you will have to pay to get one of her special ones. Honey B. can be found in the district of Isle O' Hags in Banjo Tooie.
