The Mighty Jinjonator (ジンジョネーター, Jinjonator) is Banjo & Kazooie’s Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


The Jinjonator being summoned in Ultimate.

Banjo and Kazooie begin their Final Smash by summoning the dormant statue of the Jinjonator in front of them. One opponent hit by it is sent into a cutscene in which the Jinjonator emerges from the statue and is immediately powered up by four other Jinjos; it quickly rams into the trapped opponent multiple times, before charging forward for one final hit with the four Jinjos following. Only one opponent can be caught in the cutscene; any other fighters hit by the statue will take minor vertical knockback.

The Jinjonator attacking Gruntilda repeatedly.

In the original Banjo-Kazooie, the Jinjonator makes its first and only appearance in the final boss battle against Gruntilda. In the penultimate phase of the fight, she casts a shield that grants her immunity to all of Banjo and Kazooie's attacks. Four Jinjo statues then rise from the ground, and activating them summons four Jinjos, who attack Gruntilda and knock her off her broom; after this, a single, large Jinjo statue rises, dubbing itself "the mighty Jinjonator". After activating the statue, the four previously summoned Jinjos are absorbed by the Jinjonator, who rams into Gruntilda multiple times, knocking her off of her tower with one final blow. Gruntilda then falls to the ground below, making a crater that is then covered by a large boulder of debris, trapping her.

  • The Final Smash's cinematic takes place atop a flat, grey surface surrounded by large stones with a dark sky in the background, closely resembling the location that it was utilized in Banjo-Kazooie, the tower roof at the peak of Gruntilda's Lair.
  • For a brief moment after the cinematic ends, Kazooie can be seen holding her kazoo in her mouth before she ducks back into Banjo's backpack.
