"Quit it! Leave me alone, man! Can't you see I'm busy working right now?"
— A Lakitu as he is working on the Puff Puff Machine.

Lakitus are mere Koopa species that ride on clouds with a smile on it. They attack by throwing spiny eggs at Mario (like they do in most of his games). This move can be known as Spiny Flip. Sometimes they will call for reinforcements by throwing a spiny egg to the ground. This will then hatch into becoming an enemy known as a Spiny. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, they are given with a new ability to hold their spiny eggs in place over their heads as defense, in which preventing the player from landing a jump ability against them.

Role Edit

Paper MarioEdit

Lakitus play their roles by showing loyalty to the Koopa Troop like always. In the game, they are enemies that appear no where else other than the Flower Fields. They serve under a leader named Huff N. Puff, who is of the Puff species and has his own plan besides guarding the Star Spirit, on conquering the Flower Fields by covering their skies entirely with the Puff Puff Machine. Some are even given with speaking dialogs as they appear. Lakilester, a Lakitu who was also working with the other Lakitus, betrays against them and sides with Mario.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year DoorEdit

Lakitus don't serve much of purpose in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Generic lakitus have now been bumped into being npcs found in a floating island in the sky known as Glitzville. One even became fighter there as well as he appears as part of a group called the Spike Storm. Some lakitus also appear with new unique designs as npcs found in Rogueport (Laki for an example). The game as well, introduces a new type of lakitu that appears with an angry smile (along with his cloud), darker skin, and a red shell. This one is known as the Dark Lakitu that's only found in the Pit of 100 Trials, despite being an enemy who hovers the skies.

Super Paper MarioEdit

Lakitus appear again without much of a purpose like in its prequel. They are rare enemies in this game not loyal to Bowser or being Brainwashed by Nastasia, but act as their own. They can be found as enemies in areas such as The Dotwood Tree and the Overthere Stair.
