[edit] HistoryEdit

[1] 'Originally, Lakilester was going to make an appearance in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. This would be his improved look.'In Flower Fields, Mario and his team finds a Lakitu on the way to Cloudy Climb. He introduces himself by his nickname Spike, then attacks. After he is defeated, a female Lakitu, named Lakilulu, comes and asks Mario not to finish Lakilester. Lakilester is annoyed and asks Lakilulu to call him Spike because it's his new name. Lakilester tells Mario that he is working for Huff N. Puff and asks him why he is trying to save the world. No matter what he answers, Lakilester thinks Mario is cool and joins the party. By pressing C-Down, Mario can hop on his cloud and hover over certain surfaces, such as spikes and lava, without getting hurt.

[edit] TriviaEdit

  • Like the character Vivian from the sequel, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Lakilester is a partner who joins Mario after Mario defeats them, as well as abandoning the antagonists to do so.
  • Lakilester wants to be stronger for his girlfriend, which is similar to the Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door partner Koops.
  • Though it is entirely possible to use Lakilester to travel over lava, he visibly struggles while doing so. He moves considerably slower and his cloud's expression changes to an angry frown.
  • Lakilester is the only character other than Watt, who could damage Bowser after he powers himself up with the Star Rod during the first round of the final battle. However, they can only take away 1 HP.
