"One Tonic? You've gotta present your company-approved ID card first, kid!"― Vendi
Vendi serves as an ally in Yooka-Laylee. Vendi will provide Yooka and Laylee with various Play-Tonics in every world if they complete some optional objectives. Vendi is an employee of Capital B, and only dispenses tonics for other colleagues with an ID card. She only dispenses tonics for Yooka since he claims Laylee ate his.
Name Origin Edit
Vendi's name is a play-on-words of the common female English name, "Wendy" and the word "vending machine."
Vendi is a yellow rectangular-shaped vending machine with large red lips. On her head rests a blue bandana with yellow circles with Arcade Tokens on them. She has a coin slot and a number pad on her right side. Her eyes are white with bright sapphire pupils. She has black eyeliner on, and the word 'tonics' appears near the bottom of her. She has white teeth.
