The 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 gain a Pagie when the Player collects all of the quills in its respective world. There are 200 in each world and 10 in Shipwreck Creek, making 1010 in total.
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 several of Rextro's minigames as a collectible used for high scores.
Upon First Collection Edit
- "I'm a Quill, one of 200 on each world. Collect us to purchase new moves!"
- Quills have been deliberately made to resemble the currency of the Banjo-Kazooie Series, Musical Notes, taking similarities to them in several different ways:
- Quills, as they appear on the ground, take on a 2D sprite that can be seen the same from any angle, similar to the Musical Notes and other collectibles from the Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie.
- 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 and Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, moves are taught provided the player has collected a certain amount of 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 Banjo-Kazooie games besides the first, this is removed).
- According to an early menu prototype video released by Jens Restemeier, quills used to be called quillies.
