The 5 Funniest NPCs in Yooka-Laylee

/ May 1st, 2017 No Comments

Yooka-Laylee

Yooka-Laylee is made by former Rare developers who worked on games such as Banjo-Kazooie, so of course, the humor is a major part of the title. And most of the humor comes from the Yooka-Laylee’s non-playable characters.

In name and appearance, and in mannerisms and dialogue, the game’s NPCs offer some of Yooka-Laylee’s brightest moments. Here’s a look at the five funniest NPCs in Yooka-Laylee.

5. Lavatory Creature

Call it sophomoric, but scat humor is always funny.

While traveling through the fifth world, players encounter a creature who has sat upon a toilet that doesn’t seem to work. Sadly for him, this problem will take more than a plunger to solve.

Oh for the love of…

However, Yooka and Laylee are on the scene, and they are not entirely disgusted at the prospect of helping him out, plus he is threatening to use a Pagie as bathroom tissue which the duo cannot abide.

Yooka and Laylee must battle some baddies in the sewers and move pipes to rescue the Pagie from becoming bathroom tissue. Truly, they are the heroes of the decade.

4. Shovel Knight

“Yo ho ho! Ho ho yo!” These are the noises players will hear when they meet Shovel Knight in Yooka-Laylee. His silly noises are enough to get him on this list, but fourth-wall breaking humor puts him over the top.
 

Yooka-Laylee

High praise from the absolute queen of Yooka-Laylee.

Shovel Knight makes several comments comparing his game to Yooka-Laylee — and Laylee will often offer a funny quip in retort.

3. Witch Snowman

In world two, players encounter several snowmen. One snowwoman in particular stands above the rest.

Her humor comes in the form of rhyming dialogue, which pays homage to Gruntilda Winkybunion, the main antagonist of the Banjo-Kazooie series.
 

Yooka-Laylee

Do you want to make a bet? Where your hat is you’ll never get.

Her character design — scarf, witchy hat (that players must find) and even her voice all — immediately takes fans of the bear and bird back in time.

Her rhyming dialogue is pithy and sharp, and she even has a fun line about not having any more rhymes, prompting players to move on.

2. Rextro Sixtyfourous

Rextro Sixtyfourous delivers mini-games that are tough as nails, but his sense of humor is soft and easy to fall onto.

This character dishes out antiquated anecdotes about gaming past, which will be even funnier when the cartridge-based Switch version of Yooka-Laylee releases.
 

Yooka-Laylee

His ideas are out of date, but his jokes are very relevant.

One of his better jokes comes when he literally forgets who Yooka and Laylee are, and must clear up some of his memory.

While his style of appearance is in the past, his jokes are decidedly not.

1. Trev the Tenteyecle

Call me a sucker for dialects, but I love slang — the only thing I love more than slang is people with accents speaking slang. Trev the Teneyecle — the boss of world three and one pissed off TV viewer — has a distinct dialect that makes him funny.

After “havin’ ‘is shows” interrupted by Yooka and Laylee, he decides to rough them up a bit.
 

Yooka-Laylee

U wot m8?!

At one point, he shouts “Come on and have a go, if you think you’re hard enough,” which is a direct reference to the chanting of Mayahem Temple in Banjo-Tooie. This chant is primarily shouted during soccer matches as a taunt for the opposing team. The throwback for long-time Rare fans is well appreciated.

Honorable Mention: Blamphibian Fisherman

Rare has long been known for getting incredibly M-rated jokes into E-rated games, and it seems Playtonic is following in the footsteps of its predecessor:

Blamphibian Fisherman: Excellent! Get ready to cast your rod out!

Laylee: Yooka is better with his tongue, to be honest.
 

Yooka-Laylee

You know exactly what you did, you dirty toad.

No words.
