Coconutters are enemies that appear in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. Their name is a portmanteau on "coconut" and "nutter", the latter of which can be used to describe a crazy person. This enemy can be found on Yoshi's Island and is usually encountered in groups. It looks like a coconut with limbs wielding a spear.


The Coconutter's main attack involves throwing a poison dart or a spear at any of the four heroes. These projectiles can be dodged by jumping and the target can be predetermined by checking which eye winks, similar to a Boo. If it winks the right eye, it means it will attack Mario. If it winks the left eye, it means it will attack Luigi. Another move is when it waves its spear up and down (which makes using jumps impossible, due to the spear point hurting the Mario brothers), it summons a rain cloud that heals up to thirty HP for every enemy on the field in the next round after it is activated.

The Red Coconutter is a tougher variation of Coconutter that appears on Thwomp Volcano. It has higher stats and attacks more quickly.

A similar species called Cocoknights appear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.
