“You called, master? I am known as the Genie of the Lamp. I will take you to the Star as you wish, master... Kalamazaaaam!”
Genie of the Lamp, Mario Party 4

The Genie of the Lamp is an obese magical entity that appears in Mario Party 4, replacing the Mushroom Genie. When a player rubs a Magic Lamp, the Genie of the Lamp appears and takes them to the Star Space, from which a Star can be purchased. This genie is much larger and fatter than his earlier counterpart (which shocks the player character); rather than offering a ride on his back to the Star, he instead simply jumps and lands, causing a huge rumble that takes the player to the Star. In Mario Party 5, Mario Party 6, and Mario Party 7, the genies are functionally replaced by the Flutter in the Flutter Orb; and by the Golden Pipe in Super Mario Party and Mario Party Superstars.
