That picture Grunty did is so violent lol. A cat! I knew it! I was predicting there was going to be a cat character or something in the game.

It'd be cool if this Piddles was related to Kenny.

What I'm more concerned about is the bear-and-bird dummy we see hitching a ride with Banjo in this picture, as well as the video. What's its function? Just a debug tool, or a significant element of the game?
I think the Banjo dummy is there to "protect" the vehicle when they are away - You don't just r car in the middle of the road and walk away, do ya? Looks to me like it's there to trick potential thieves into believing somone is in the car. If that's the case, then it is a somewhat-large part of the game, but not a big deal; it's just something kinda funny that's part of the game.

I thought it was just an icon type thing that says "Look over here, I'm drivable".

That makes sense.

Anyways, I'm not sure why you would even worry about that when it is such a minor part of the game. If they did anything Ken Lobb would've mentioned it.

I like that idea. Early on in the game baddies could strip your vehicle of parts while you are not there, or even joyride it to a new location. Getting this upgrade means you can leave your vehicle for longer without it getting tampered with.

I reckon Piddles could be a re-design and re-characterisation of Pipsy.

The name's similar, from what we've seen they look alike, and Rare did mention it was a 'character from the Rare archives'.

It all seems to fall into place if you ask me, what do you lot think?

P.S. I know BlueytheWalrus has already stated this, but no one seemed to respond to the comment. I worked out it could be Pipsy by myself, I did a search to check it wasn't already 'discovered', and only came across Bluey's words.

Plagiarism not intended

...in one of the fake plots.

Also, the names are similar...yeah. "Banjo" and "Jinjo" are similar too, and that means nothing.
