Loyal Poplin, Super Mario Bros. Wonder

The Loyal Poplin is a character in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They are a green Poplin carrying a pickaxe who lives near the entrance of Fungi Mines. After reading the note left in their home and obtaining a Wonder Seed, the Loyal Poplin will appear on the world map and request aid from Mario’s group to find their missing friends, who travelled deep within the mines to obtain a Royal Seed for Prince Florian. In exchange for 10 flower coins, the Loyal Poplin will construct a bridge, allowing the player access to the first several courses in Fungi Mines. They also provide the Sensor Badge.

After completing An Uncharted Area: Wubba Ruins, the Loyal Poplin will begin appearing next to the ensuing three courses that lead deeper into the ruins. They will provide the player with a 1-Up Mushroom the first time they are spoken to at each new location, and will encourage using the Sensor Badge if the courses are not completed through the correct exit. The Loyal Poplin also briefly appears at the beginning of A Final Uncharted Area: Poison Ruins, encouraging Mario and friends to proceed with caution.

After obtaining the Royal Seed at the end of Operation Poplin Rescue, the Loyal Poplin will appear to guide their four friends back home. If the player returns to Fungi Mines after receiving the Wonder Seed, the Loyal Poplin will appear in their home, again worrying for their friends' safety. Upon subsequent completions of Operation Poplin Rescue, the Loyal Poplin will appear again, this time scolding their friends for mining in a place so dangerous.

The Loyal Poplin also appears in the ending sequence, celebrating the defeat of Castle Bowser alongside the Master Poplin, the Angler Poplin, and others.
