Play Tonics were named after the company developing the game Yooka-Laylee, Playtonic Games. Tonics are also a type of carbonated water beverage, fitting in with the potion theme.

Trivia Edit

  • Play Tonics are most similar to Cheato Pages from Banjo-Tooie. Both collectibles give you an advantage in the game, such as the ability to swim faster.
