The baby elephant is an item in Mario is Missing!. She is a living elephant and a part of the local wildlife in the Nairobi National Park. She gets kidnapped by a Koopa Troopa when a group of them invade Nairobi, angering her mother and shutting down the entire park to the public. Luigi then rescues her and, as he does not know where she belongs, he shows it to whoever he meets. They give various facts about the elephant, such as how she is specifically an African elephant, and some of them recognize her as being from the nearby nature reserve. Luigi soon returns her to the park's information booth and continues on.


  • Boy: "Wow! You'll need a pith helmet to transport that puny pachyderm back to her game preserve."
  • Tourist: "That elephant's mom is pretty mad. You better return her to the National Park before she comes looking!"
  • Business Woman: "Too bad your brother got kidnapped. I was going to take you two on safari. I guess you get to see an elephant anyway."
  • Scientist: "That elephant is lucky. If she were Asian instead of African, only her brothers could grow tusks!"
  • Police Officer: "Good hunting! Take that elephant back to her home in Nairobi National Park."
