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.
