Jojora's Friends are a group of friends from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga who are all mutually friendly with Jojora. The girls are named Chucklissa, Oholina, Hoohoolia, and Teeheena. They all have the same appearance and perhaps are the same person. They have snowball-like bodies, white faces, and muscular arms. They are all named after places in the Beanbean Kingdom: Chucklehuck Woods, Oho Oasis, Hoohoo Mountain/Village, and Teehee Valley, respectively. As a result, the names are all related to onomatopoeia for laughter. One of the friends is the boss of Joke's End, the icy castle that is the second to last world of the game.

When the Mario Bros. reach the top of Joke's End, Jojora invites them to a tea party and asks them which of her friends they want to meet, and the player can choose. The friend ends up attacking the Bros. when she appears along with Jojora. Jojora's friends still pretend to have a tea party as they sometimes put on makeup and try to kiss Mario and Luigi. This attack can be countered with a Jump. The bros. should not hurt Jojora's friend when Jojora is around, or Jojora will bury the bros. in snow (prevented by pressing A and B rapidly), as well as fully healing her friend. The friend can either be healed or take critical damage from the Bros depending on her makeup: the monster is healed with Firebrand (so Thunderhand is effective) when she has makeup, and healed with Thunderhand when she does not (so Firebrand is effective). The makeup increases the defense of the friend wearing it at the cost of speed. The friends also have the ability to turn into a snowball and crush the Bros. (A well-timed Hammer strike counters this attack.) It is unknown if any of these friends are the "cousin of the descendant of the spirit who guarded Joke's End" mentioned by Jojora when Mario and Luigi first entered the frozen palace. She melts after being defeated.
