EXCLUSIVE: Thorn Thursday- Big Butt the Invincible

Remember Big Butt? He was this angry bull parading around in Banjo-Kazooie. He first appeared in Mumbo’s Mountain and then later in the game in Gruntilda’s Lair outside of the entrance to Click Clock Wood. He was in Click Clock Wood as well. Big Butt at first sight appears to be just another standard enemy with googly eyes for Banjo and Kazooie to dispose of in their quest to rescue Banjo’s sister Tooty. From the very first time you attack him though, you realize that he isn’t like all of the other creatures and sub-bosses throughout the game. Big Butt is actually invincible. That’s right…invincible. He’s the only character in the game that has this unique and special tribute.

You can pelt him with eggs, Beak Barge him, use the Rat-a-tat-Rap attack and even utilize the Golden Feather, but all of your efforts are in veign. The most you can do is stun him temporarily for a few seconds, but you had best beware when he recovers! He’ll be right back to charging and attempting to ram the bear and bird duo with his sharp and pointy horns. So when it comes to playing Banjo-Kazooie, try and avoid Big Butt the Bull at all costs or you may just find your adventure to be short lived!
