Conker Wiki

Buga the Knut is the boss at the end of the Uga Buga chapter in Conker's Bad Fur Day and Conker: Live & Reloaded. He is a large fat caveman wearing a loincloth and holding a large bone in his hand and is the leader of the Uga-Buga race. He is shown to have a Caesar-like persona and enjoys pitting his own people against Fangy the Raptor. He also tends to brag to his girlfriend, Jugga, about his "big bone" (heavily implied to be referring to the alleged size of his genitalia).


Buga goes to fight Conker in the Arena after seeing Conker and Fangy the Raptor have defeated all of his soldiers. He mainly wants to fight him because his girlfriend Jugga says that Conker's got a bigger bone than him (especially he claimed that he has the biggest bone in existence).

To defeat Buga, Conker must jump whenever Buga stomps on the ground. When Buga prepares to attack using his bone club Conker must make Fangy ram Buga's crotch hard enough to force him to drop his loincloth. Fangy will then bite Buga's buttocks (Conker described this strategy immediately prior to the battle as "going for the meat and two veg" and "he may need a bit of tenderizing"). When this is done three times, Buga will be defeated.

The beaten Buga tries to pull up his loincloth, but it keeps dropping (implied to be because a significant amount of his buttocks were bitten off that the loincloth could no longer fit him). Everyone, including his girlfriend Jugga, sees his very small genitalia and he runs away and crashes through the wall just below his throne chamber because of the embarrassment, never to be seen again.


  • Like most of the male characters in the game, Buga shares the same voice actor as Conker.
    • Buga's motive for attacking Conker (jealousy over the latter allegedly having a "larger bone" than him) was similar to Gruntilda and her abduction of Tooty in Banjo-Kazooie (in her case, envy over the latter being more beautiful than her). Aside from both Conker and Banjo-Kazooie being made by Rareware and Nintendo, both Buga and Gruntilda share the same voice actor, Chris Seavor.
  • In Conker's Bad Fur Day, he has 3 toes like Fred Flintstone.
  • His name is a parody of Jabba the Hutt, and speaks in a similar manner to him.
  • If the player gets attacked by Fangy after being knocked off him during the first few waves against enemies, a scene will play of Buga the Knut, evidently amused by the spectacle, saying to Jugga "Fangy showed the Squirrel. That's how it's done."
  • In Live and Reloaded, Buga's bone is shown to have slight blood stains, implying that Conker and Fangy weren't the first people to get into a fight with Buga.
  • The throne area that Jugga and Buga were at has two ladders on each side. A close observation of the ladders (such as when Buga gets up to receive applause before the start of the games) reveal that the ladders have 35 rungs, implying that Buga's height is at least 35 feet (as each rung is required to have a maximum of 12 inches between rungs in a ladder), this also makes him around 30 feet taller than Conker who is only 145 cm (4'9").
  • Buga is the only boss character besides Franky the Pitchfork to actually survive his fight against Conker (due to running away in shame over the exposure of his truly small genitalia).
  • Buga's design resembles and may have been repurposed from the Cyclops from Twelve Tales: Conker 64.
