Template:Characterbox Old King Coal is a giant made entirely of coal that inhabits the boiler of a locomotive called Chuffy in Glitter Gulch Mine in Banjo-Tooie.

He fights Banjo and Kazooie, who want to take control of the engine. He can be defeated by having Ice Eggs, Fire Eggs and Grenade Eggs constantly shot at him, making his body parts fall off, leaving him completely destroyed by the end of the battle. He does not aim to attack Banjo and Kazooie, but the duo get injured when they touch him.

After he is defeated, Old King Coal believes you are worthy of riding his train, and he gladly drives Chuffy over to any train station that Banjo and Kazooie call him to.

Old King Coal makes a cameo appearance as a statue in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. Its eyes follow Banjo and Kazooie, implying that he is possibly alive and has been revived.


  • His name is a pun on the nursery rhyme "Old King Cole", which Kazooie makes a reference to ("But you're supposed to be a merry old soul").
  • Despite its menacing appearance, it is not aggresive and is thought to be one of the easiest bosses in the entire game.
