Conker Wiki

Below is a list of video game spoofs that are present in Conker's Pocket Tales, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Conker: Live & Reloaded, and Conker's Big Reunion.

Conker's Pocket Tales[]

  • Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! — If the player doesn't move Conker for some time, he'll play a Game Boy while the main theme of Donkey Kong Country 3 is heard.

Conker's Bad Fur Day / Conker: Live & Reloaded[]


  • Donkey Kong CountryWayne and the Wankas are presumably spoofs to Zinger, another Wasp like enemy, and Mr. Barrel is based off Klobber, another barrel dwelling creature from the series.
  • Banjo-Kazooie — Bugger Lugs heavily resembles Bigbutt, a bull enemy from the series.

Uga Buga[]

  • Banjo-Tooie — The world of Uga Buga could be a reference to Terrydactyland, another dinosaur themed world and the Uga-Buga's seem to be a parody of the Unga Bunga Tribe, a similar group of cavemen.
  • Sabre Wulf — The Uga-Buga's headwear and the same headwear Conker wears appears as the head of the title character of Sabre Wulf, a game made by Rareware.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time — The cavemen's cavern with the giant dinosaur head is a direct parody of the "Dodongo's Cavern" dungeon.
  • Pokémon Red & Blue — In a deleted scene, Don Weaso tries to catch Pikachu by beating him with a baseball bat.
  • Tekken 3 — The theme of the Surf Punks has a riff very similar to Jin Kazama's theme from the said game.
  • Super Mario World — The way how Conker rides Fangy the Raptor is a presumed parody and nod to how Mario rides Yoshi.


  • Resident Evil — Count Batula's mansion, filled with zombies, is a parody of the then raising survival horror genre.
  • Banjo-Kazooie — Count Batula's mansion is possibly a reference to Mad Monster Mansion.

It's War[]


  • Super Mario 64 — The final battle against Heinrich is fought in a similar fashion to the Bowser one.


  • Killer Instinct 2 — The sounds the player makes while wielding a Katana weapon and jumping or attacking an enemy, are those of Jago from the game, highly pitched up.
  • Zero Wing — The phrase "All your base are belong to us" can be seen written on a wall in the Doon map.


  • Banjo-Kazooie — Inside "The Cock and Plucker", Banjo's head can be seen over the chimney mounted like a trophy. An umbrella with Kazooie's head can also be seen in the "Chapters Selection Screen".
  • Grabbed by the Ghoulies — In Conker: Live & Reloaded, Cooper can be seen vomiting in a toilet when selecting the third game file.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2 — Conker's helicoptery-tail thing is based on Tails' signature move.
  • Killer Instinct — In one of Conker's idle animations, he plays Killer Instinct on the Game Boy.
  • Crash Bandicoot — One of Conker's idle animations has Conker play with a yo-yo, in a similar manner to one of Crash Bandicoot's idle animations.

Conker's Big Reunion[]

  • Metal Gear Solid — There's a stealth section in which Conker hides inside a barrel. He comments "What's a guy have to do to get a cardboard box around here?". Also Birdy calls Conker with a codec.
  • Donkey Kong — Inside the brewery while barrels are rolling down a ramp, Conker wonders if a giant ape is throwing them, like Donkey Kong does. Later he asks if somebody could call a plumber, referencing Mario.
