Genie of the Lamp, Mario Party 4

The Genie of the Lamp is a 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 and onward, the genies are absent, their role replaced by the Flutter in the Wiggler Capsule/Flutter Orb.
