Lakilulu is a female Lakitu and Lakilester's girlfriend in Paper Mario. Her name is a portmanteau of "Lakitu" and the the female name "Lulu".

History[edit]

Following Lakilester's defeat at Mario's hands, Lakilulu arrives and stops Mario from doing anything else. She tells him that Lakilester, who was working for Huff N. Puff, was simply following orders and asks Mario to forgive him. If Mario refuses, she will repeatedly attack him with Spiny Eggs until he changes his mind. After Mario describes his true intentions, Lakilester decides to join Mario's party and Lakilulu flies off into the sky. She can then be found idling to the left of the Wise Wisterwood, where she remains for the rest of the game. She also writes a letter to Lakilester later on. At the end of the game, Lakilulu is seen attending a party at Peach's Castle alongside Lakilester.
