Hey you- my name's Lakitu

A funny thing happened today. I had to stop to play a game with Yoshi. Hey, ever hear the one about the Koopa King, Yoshi and a Magikoopa...

Tattle This is a Lakitu. Lakitus are strange Koopas that can ride clouds. Max HP: 12, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0 They toss down Spiny Eggs, and these sometimes turn into crawling Spinies. We'd better deal with them quickly or else we'll be surrounded by Spinies. It seems like these Lakitus have been hassling you for your entire career, Mario.

Log A cloud-riding member of the Koopa tribe, Lakitu attacks by throwing Spiny eggs, which slowly hatch into Spinies.
Tattle That's a Lakitu. It's a member of the Koopa clan that rides on clouds. Max HP is 5, Attack is 2, and Defense is 0. It attacks by throwing Spiny Eggs. If you stomp on it when it's holding up a Spiny Egg, you'll take damage, so DON'T do it! Spiny Eggs slowly hatch into Spinies, so beat the Lakitu before fighting the Spinies. Aw, this book doesn't answer my real question: where does it keep all those Spiny Eggs?

Tattle Normal: That's a Lakitu. They're odd creatures that drive around in clouds... Max HP is 4 and Attack is 1. It'll throw Spinys at you, so keep moving... It doesn't change altitude, so if you sneak up on it while dodging Spinys... You can stomp it, hop in the cloud and find out where it keeps all those Spinys...
Flipping: That's a Lakitu. They're odd creatures that drive around in clouds... This one can flip between dimensions... Max HP is 4 and Attack is 1. It'll throw Spinys at you, so keep moving...

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Lakitu Trophy164.png Super Mario Bros.
These airborne menaces used to ride their clouds exclusively as Bowser's henchmen. They typically hover just out of Mario's reach and hurl Spinies with irritating precision. More recently, however, they've been known to take on less evil tasks, such as doing camera work for sports events and even helping Mario on his quests.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]


Name Image Game Description
Lakitu & Spinies BrawlTrophy164.png NES Super Mario Bros. A particularly stubborn breed of Koopa. Lakitus chase Mario aboard clouds and attack by throwing Spiny Eggs down from above. More recently, Lakitus have taken over the role of cameramen, filming with cameras that they dangle from long rods. Spinies are Koopa creatures with tough, spiked shells. Jumping onto them has no effect, but fireballs can dispatch them.

Flying over the battlefield in a cloud, this member of Bowser's forces persistently chases after Mario. He takes a break from throwing Spiny Eggs to do some racing in Mario Kart 7. When summoned, he'll appear as a sprite and toss Spiny Eggs at those fighting below him. One of Bowser's minions, this cloud-riding turtle and general nuisance to Mario made his debut as a playable character in Mario Kart 7. In this game, you can summon a pixellated Lakitu who'll throw Spiny Eggs that will turn into Spinies - beasties with red, spiky shells - when they hit the ground.
Lakitu LakituSpiny2Trophy3DS.png N/A N/A With his cute little specs and smiling cloud, it's hard not to love Lakitu...until he starts pelting you with Spiny Eggs. This meanie has been tormenting Mario since the very first Super Mario Bros. game, and his mode of attack is no different here. He'll try and hover out of reach, but only by taking him out can you keep the Spiny rain from falling. With his cute little specs and smiling cloud, it's hard not to love Lakitu...until he starts pelting you with Spiny Eggs. This blighter has been tormenting Mario since the very first Super Mario Bros. game, and his mode of attack is no different here. Although he loves to hover just out of reach, you'll want to take him out to stop those Spinies coming.
Lakitu + Cloud 9 Cloud9Trophy3DS.png N/A N/A This cloud kart is basically the bottom half of Lakitu. With its fluffy design and zippy style, Cloud 9 seems like a good match for Yoshi, but can you imagine what it would look like for Wario to drive this? It might just be distracting enough to give you an advantage! This cloud kart is basically Lakitu's other half. As in, "bottom half". Being so fluffy, it would be a good fit for Yoshi, but can you imagine Wario driving it? That'd just be weird! Then again, maybe he'd use that to throw his opponents off their game... Yep, that Wario's a sneaky one!
