A Quill is the most common collectible in Yooka-Laylee, serving as the game's currency. They can be used to purchase new abilities from Trowzer and get Pagies when the Player collects all 200 on a world. There are 200 in each world and 10 in Shipwreck Creek, making 1010 in total.

Appearance Edit

Quills have a pattern consisting of yellow and darker yellow sections. The quill curls inward at the top.

Bronze, silver, and golden quills can be found in the Glaciators minigame as well as the Jobstacle Course minigame, along with others.


Upon First Collection Edit

  • "I'm a Quill, one of 200 on each world. Collect us to purchase new moves!"



Trivia Edit

  • The design of Quills is deliberately made to resemble the 2D art style of the Musical Notes and other collectibles from the Banjo-Kazooie series, in that the sprites always face the player no matter what angle they're at.
    • This is not the only thing that makes this item like the Musical Notes. Some notable similarities besides the preceding one are:
      • They are collected in large masses, as in Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts there are 100 on each world, and in Yooka-Laylee, there are 200 on each world.
      • They are used for learning moves, as in Banjo-Tooie, Jamjars teaches moves for Notes (however, he does not actually take their Notes) and in Yooka-Laylee, Trowzer sells moves at the cost of Quills.
      • They have a dancing animation very similar to that of the Musical Notes from Banjo-Kazooie, as a large part of their sprite bobs back and forth to attract attention (although in the other Banjo-Kazooie games they remove this Musical Note animation).
  • According to an early menu prototype video released by Jens Restemeier, quills used to be called quillies.[1]
