“Please take care of Lakilester. He acts like he's really tough, but he's a bit of a pushover.”
Lakilulu, Paper Mario

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".


At first, Lakilulu and Lakilester (mostly Lakilester) are working for Huff N. Puff, and, as such, are minions of King Bowser. Following Mario's defeat of Lakilester (known as "Spike?" during the fight), Lakilulu stops Mario from doing anything else. Lakilester informs her that Mario must finish him off for good, for to the victor goes the spoils. She threatens to harm Mario if he hurts her boyfriend more. 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 in the game. Lakilulu has a bit of a mean streak, especially if things do not go her way, as evidenced when she attacks Mario with a Spiny Egg if he refuses to forgive her boyfriend.

At the end of the game, Lakilulu is seen attending a party at Peach's Castle alongside Lakilester.


  • "This is Lakilester's girlfriend, Lakilulu. When they have arguments, she never backs down. What a cute couple."
