Kamek using Coddle.
BP/SP/CP needed 6
First appearance Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey (2018)

Coddle is a first officer command used by Kamek in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey. It is Kamek's second command, the first being Sneak Attack. It is unlocked at level 28 and costs 6 CP to use. Once it is activated, Kamek will fly over to Bowser Jr. and start giving him compliments. After each compliment, the player has the choice of continuing or quitting. The more compliments that are given, the more Bowser Jr.'s spirit is raised and the more CP he will receive. If Kamek overdoes this, however, Bowser Jr. will become suspicious, and will receive much less CP, and the attack will end automatically. After each compliment is given, more and more musical notes will appear, and the music that plays will become faster and higher. This is one of the two Captain Commands not known by any enemies in the game, the other being Negotiate.
