|First appearance||Super Mario Sunshine (2002)|
The Noki are a race of short creatures with shells, first debut in Super Mario Sunshine. They, along with Piantas, inhabit Isle Delfino. They thrive primarily in Noki Bay, many of the Nokis resided rarely rise to the surface of the bay, but rather inhabit in a large underwater area located directly beneath the bay's large waterfall. They are some of the most relaxed and intelligent characters in the Mario series.
Creation and DevelopmentEdit
Their profile in Mario Superstar Baseball reveals that Nokis evolved from shellfish.
Noki appears as an unlockable character in Mario Kart: Mega Mash-Up. She is a small racer and her karts and bikes will follow a cream and blue (and sometimes pale blue) colour scheme.
She will do the following to each stat in whatever kart or bike she rides:
- Speed: +2
- Weight: +1
- Acceleration: +1
- Handling: +2
Though not playable in Mario Kart NX, various Noki appear in the background of several courses.
