“Friends deserve Trophy for this bit, but Rextro all out of budget.”― Rextro Sixtyfourus
Name Origin Edit
Rextro Sixtyfourus' name is a play-on-words of "tyrannosaurus rex," "retro", and "sixty-four." The words "retro" and "sixty-four" describe Rextro's retro "64-bit" design, and the Nintendo 64 platform in which the original Banjo-Kazooie games were made on. "Rex" and the part of his name "aurus" also refers to the species of dinosaur, "Tyrannosaurus Rex."
Rextro has a low-polygonal blocky appearance that resembles the graphics generated in games for the Nintendo 64; a 64-bit game console that the first two Banjo-Kazooie games were released for. Rextro has a large head with two cylindrical googly eyes with dark blue pupils. He mostly has orange skin with a yellow underbelly, and blue eyes and red, square-shaped, scales running down his back. Rex also appears to have claws on his hands and feet while his gigantic mouth seems to only have a few sharp teeth. The yellow medallion Rex wears around his neck is one of the game's many Play Coins.
Rextro is a very energetic, yet lonely dinosaur. No one has played one of his arcade games since his friends started playing online. He is a bit absent minded and forgets who Yooka and Laylee are until the Casino area where he learns modern technology. Rextro is very ignorant of technological advances since the 90's, as he constantly makes references to the past. Rextro becomes excited when someone wins his game or beats the score of the original game, most likely due to the fact that no one has played his games for years.
