Variant of Lakitu

Gold Lakitus[1] are enemies first appearing in New Super Mario Bros. 2. They are Lakitus under the effects of a Gold Ring, and they fly around in golden clouds. Gold Lakitus throw three coins at a time instead of Spinies, similarly to the Lakitus that spawn from square clouds in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Additionally, if Mario or Luigi defeats a Gold Lakitu, they will earn 20 coins. They can then ride on its cloud, which generates coins as they move (while still in its golden state), similar to a Gold Block.

A Gold Lakitu also appears in Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World in Gold Rush Mode of the Poochy Dash minigame, where it leaves behind a trail of golden Beads, which Poochy collects throughout the minigame, while moving towards the right at Poochy's speed.
