The Zubbas are black and yellow hornets. In Banjo-Kazooie, they are protecting a Jiggy in their nest for Grunty and they will attack anyone who tries to get it.
In Banjo-Tooie, they fly around Cloud Cuckooland and attack Banjo with their stingers if he gets close. They even have a minigame for the bee in which you try to shoot as many Zubbas as you can;
- Blue Zubbas are worth 3 points.
- Green Zubbas are worth 2 points.
- Red Zubbas are worth 1 point.
