The Black Snippet is a minor villain in the video game; Banjo-Kazooie. He's considered to be the strongest version of Snippets. He's treated as a boss battle after Banjo and Kazooie complete the puzzle in the Sandcastle in Treasure Trove Cove. He's so powerful that not even the Blue eggs nor the Beak Busters are not enough to take him out. His main purpose is to guard the Jiggy behind a metal gate. After Banjo and Kazooie defeat the Black Snippet, they can acquire the Jiggy.
- Much like Gruntilda, The Black Snippet speaks in rhymes, the only difference is that, Gruntilda stops rhyming in Banjo-Tooie.
