The Cock and Plucker is a recurring location in the Conker franchise.

Features and overview

The Cock and Plucker is a pub in the Panther Kingdom where characters go to drink and socialize. Conker is a frequent visitor of the location. The exterior has a wooden plaque displaying the bar's name and a sheep.

Conker's Bad Fur Day

The Cock and Plucker first appears in Conker's Bad Fur Day. It is the first location seen, as Conker walks into it after the game's start-up sequence. After Conker walks inside, the file selection menu loads. It takes place within the pub. The location contains SHC vets talking and drinking, Gregg sitting at a table, and Birdy is outside of The Cock and Plucker. Inside is a band named The Weasels, which is a parody of The Beatles. There is a Fire Imp near the fireplace where the Cheats and Options can be changed. The phone booth has two stickers "Sex" and one that advertises a cab service. At the main counter there is a massive sword on the display. The door leads to the cellar which is where most of the Multi modes can be selected and where the bartender is. Both Banjo and Kazooie from the Banjo-Kazooie series make a cameo in the menu: Banjo's head is mounted over a fireplace, and selecting the "Chapters" option shows Kazooie's head as the handle of an umbrella.

In the game's opening sequence, Conker talks to Berri from The Cock and Plucker. He later consumes too much alcohol in the pub and gets drunk. Conker feels unwell and decides to go home, so he leaves. Conker vomits next to a Monk Gobling outside the bar and goes the wrong way home because of his dizziness.

The Cock and Plucker appears again much later after the end credits finish. The cutscene shows Conker requesting a bottle of alcohol as he is unsatisfied with his new position as king and Berri's death. He walks out of The Cock and Plucker drunk. Similar to the intro, Conker looks in both directions but this time he takes the correct route to his home.

Conker: Live & Reloaded

In Conker: Live & Reloaded, some visual changes were made to The Cock and Plucker compared to its original appearance in Conker's Bad Fur Day. There are two posters, one of which parodies the Uncle Sam "I Want You for U.S. Army" poster, and the other is a moon landing which says "First squirrel on moon." The sword on the counter in the original version has also been removed. More characters are shown in The Cock and Plucker, including Birdy, SHC members, and Tediz. There is also a chipmunk bartender at a separate counter. Cooper from Grabbed by the Ghoulies also makes a cameo; he is shown vomiting in a toilet if the player selects Game 3. The door that leads to a cellar instead directs to the Xbox Live & Co. mode. Also one of the paintings shows a Squirrel in a explorer's outfit which is a parody of Rare's Sabreman from the sabrewulf games which also raises the question if Conker has more ancestors.

The second page of the Conker: Live & Reloaded manual shows a poster of The Cock and Plucker, and it details the different options on the menu. The first paragraph of the page also mentions how Squirrel and Tediz war veterans are both invited to The Cock and Plucker.

Conker's Big Reunion

The Cock and Plucker reappears in the official Project Spark DLC title, Conker's Big Reunion.
