How Banjo joined the Tourney
Banjo and Kazooie set off to aid Alisa Bosconovitch, when she is having trouble fighting Gruntilda. They happen upon Bottles, a good friend of Alisa's, who decides to help them out by teaching them various teamwork powers, which help them get through the evil witch's lair. They also meet Mumbo Jumbo, a shaman who helps them by turning them into various animals and objects to help them traverse to areas they normally would be unable to, and Heihachi Mishima, who welcomes the bear and bird to the Smash Bros. Tourney.
Classic Mode Ending Movie
Banjo does an uppercut to Alisa Bosconovitch and goes "Yahoo!" Alisa then powers down then collapses (with the same collapsing animation from Tekken: Blood Vengeance) and nearly crushes Banjo who then gets up with "Ow!" Banjo then rubs his head and wonders what to do with her. Hours later, Banjo brings her to Starbase 12. A Starfleet officer (voiced by Dave B. Mitchell in English, Tessho Genda in Japanese, Serge Bourrier in French) examines her and says "Wow. She must make a good Starfleet candidate." Banjo goes "Guh huh!" and the officer pats his head. "Well, Mr... Banjo. I'll get you a commendation." the officer saluted.
