Howzit is a shopkeeper in Super Paper Mario. He has shops in multiple areas throughout the game, including Flipside, Yold Town, Downtown of Crag, and even Outer Space (the Outer Space shop, known as Twinkle Mart, only sells candy bars and the player cannot store or pick things up, or earn shop points). However, in Flopside, his counterpart Notso runs the local shop and the Howzit in Downtown of Crag sports a caveman's outfit similar to the native Cragnons. His name is a pun on the question "How's it?" and he frequently uses the word "gooood" as his catchphrase.

Trivia[edit]

  • The German version states that Notso, rather than Howzit, runs the Twinkle Mart in Outer Space. The English localization merely notes that the version of him in the Twinkle Mart seems to have a different personality than normal. This is the only version of him that cannot be directly tattled, due to the building blocking the cursor and thus being tattled instead.
