Banjo Tooie: 900
Musical notes appear in all of the games in the Banjo Kazooie series and are an important part to actually completing the game and moving on to different worlds/places. Musical notes appear as individual pieces or in groups together called nests. By collecting these notes, Banjo and Kazooie will be able to proceed to new worlds, learn new moves from different characters, and unlock Note Locked Doors.
Banjo-Kazooie is the first game in the series, as well, the first game to have musical notes. The main and original purpose of these notes are to unlock Note Locked Doors in which Gruntilda Winkybunion has sealed to prevent Banjo from progressing to more difficult worlds. It is mandatory to collect notes as Banjo and Kazooie will be unable to get to Gruntilda if they do not collect at least 882/900 of the notes within the game. Each world has a total of 100 notes. Once collected, the notes will permanently be counted onto Banjo and cannot be deducted. Notes will still appear in their original places in the world if Banjo leaves the world though and can be recollected. Banjo's note count will not increase though unless a new note that hasn't already been discovered has been collected. To unlock a note door, Banjo must have the minimum number of notes required as shown on the door, or more.

 Furnace Fun
Furnace Fun is Grunty's gameshow and final challenge before beating her for the first time. Often, Grunty will ask Banjo questions related to the number of notes that are required to unlock each door on Banjo-Kazooie panels.
 Banjo Tooie
In Banjo Tooie, notes have a different purpose than in the previous game. Instead of notes unlocking doors, they now unlock new moves. New moves can be taught by Jamjars, a replacement of Bottles due to the fact that he has died from Grunty's Hag1. Notes also appear in clusters instead of individual pieces now. There are 16 note nests, each being equivalent to 5 regular notes in each world, as well, one treble clef which is equivalent to twenty notes. Musical notes are necessary to learn moves from Jamjars to beat bosses in the game and to access new areas.
 Treble Clef
Treble clefs are rare groups of musical notes that are worth a total of 20 notes. In each world, there is one treble clef accompanied by 16 note nests (making a total of 100 musical notes per world). Treble clefs are often very difficult to find and are placed in odd end locations.
