Hinopio, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Hinopio is a reclusive Toad in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Hinopio used to live in the Mushroom Kingdom, but moved out a long time ago to set up his own shop in Barrel Volcano. Hinopio seems to be comfortable in the volcano and spends his time running the Hino Mart, which is actually two shops that sell both items and armor. On a shelf in the back of Hinopio's shop, there are toy models of Captain Falcon's and Samurai Goroh's F-Zero racers, the "Blue Falcon" and the "Fire Stingray", in addition to an Arwing from Star Fox. The Hino Mart also has an "inn" inside which, in fact, is simply a pile of crates for Mario and his allies to sleep on.
