Tiptup is a recurring NPC character in the Banjo-Kazooie series that, along with Banjo, also made his debut in Diddy Kong Racing in 1997. However, Tiptup was originally the name of a turtle in Dream: Land of Giants, the game that would eventually morph into Banjo-Kazooie. Halfway through the development of BK, the development team behind Diddy Kong Racing (or Pro-Am 64 as it was called before Diddy Kong was included later on) were in need of names for their racers, one of which happened to be a turtle, and thus it was given the Tiptup name. Tiptup was then incorporated into future Rare games like Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie.

While Tiptup is most commonly associated with the Banjo-Kazooie franchise due to his appearances in various games, he was actually originally conceived as a character for the Donkey Kong universe. This early iteration of Tiptup was designed for a game called Dream, which ultimately morphed into the project that became Banjo-Kazooie. Though he eventually ended up in a different game, Tiptup's origins lie in the world of Donkey Kong, making him a fascinating character with a crossover history.
