Bottles is a nearsighted mole who wears large, thick, Coke-bottle-framed glasses, originating from the Banjo-Kazooie series. In the games, he serves as a mentor to Banjo teaching him various important aspects about the game, including his moves.

He makes a crossover appearance with the Mario world in the Club Nintendo comics. In the comic "Super Mario in Aloha Hawaii", he brings Mario along on a trip to Hawaii. While there, the two get into many shenanigans, including entering into a golf tournament. However, they accidentally wreck the course and Bottles is last seen being chased by Mario into the horizon.

Through an update released on January 30, 2018, Bottles appears as a skin in the Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft alongside other Microsoft characters.[1]

Bottles appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the background of the Spiral Mountain stage as part of the Banjo & Kazooie downloadable content. In addition, he appears as a spirit, with his new model in the game being used as artwork.
