This guide will show you where to find Trowzers, the trouser-wearing snake, in Yooka-Laylee. Trowzers is a character that turns up several times throughout your adventure through Yooka-Laylee to sell and teach you new skills.
The first time you can find Trowzer is right at the beginning of the game in Shipwreck Creek. After the book is stolen, you can find Trowzer near a golden gate. He’ll teach you Tail Twirl for free so you can smash open the pirate chests to collect Quills. He’ll say he needs 5 Quills to tell you where all the Pagies went, but don’t worry, he doesn’t actually take them.
When you enter Hivory Towers for the first time, Trowzer will be to your left near the railing. Speak to him and he’ll tell you where a Pagie is located. After collecting the first Pagie, Trowzer will teach you the Reptile Roll skills for free.
From the start of Tribalstack Tropics, go up the ramp and head forward to the temple in the center of the map. There are ramps that lead up to the next level, use Reptile Roll to go up these ramps. You can find Trowzer standing by the pillar.
Here you can purchase Sonar Shot, Slurp Shot, and Buddy Slam from him.
When you decide to move to World 2 in Yooka-Laylee, you will come across Trowzers before a large gap. This is where Trowzer will sell you Glide for free.
You can find Trowzer in the second world, Glitterglaze Glacier, down by the water. Start the level and follow the path as it bends around to the right. Instead of going up the ramps on the mountain, continue forward and head down to the water to find this trouser-wearing snake salesman!
Hivory Towers – Archive
When you think it’s time to find World 3, you can find Trowzer in the Archive section of Hivory Tower. Here, he will teach you another move for free, this time it’s Bubble Walk.
You can find Trowzer in World 3, Moodymaze Marsh by following the main path along. You’ll go underwater, jump over a small river and round a corner. In the open area you’ll find a giant yellow mushroom, and below this mushroom is Trowzer.
Hivory Towers – Outside
After you’ve finished with Moodymaze Marsh and want to find World 4, you will come across Trowzer. You will head outside and see the big machines running Hivory Hotel, continue along the boardwalks and find Trowzer near a security camera operated gate. Here he will teach you Camo Cloak for free.
You can find Trowzer in Capital Casino as soon as you start the level. Head out past the security cameras and look to the left of the banker. You can see Trowzer next to a bright neon arrow.
Hivory Towers – Toxic Tunnel
After visiting World 4 and leaving the book to Hivory Towers, you can find Trowzer if you double-back and head to where you came from, past the security cameras. He’ll be on the opposite side of the area to Vendi, near a lot of toxic gasses and sludge. This is where you’ll learn the skill Flappy Flight for free!
Finally, the last place you can meet Trowzer is in World 5, Galleon Galaxy. You can meet him just after the start of the level. Make your way across the large gap using Flappy Flight, and land near the building below the lighthouse. Trowzer is at the bottom of a ramp with laser grids.
Trowzer makes his way all around the world of Yooka-Laylee, and if you can find him you’ll be rewarded with free moves or you’ll be able to purchase new skills! A lot of the skills you learn require a lot of energy, so be sure to collect all Energy Extenders.
