Nutsoglobin, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Nutsoglobins are a variant of Emoglobin that appear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its 3DS remake. They are only found in the Flab Zone. If the player activates the Nutsoglobin, they are given the option to "spend time with" it. Unlike other Emoglobins, Nutsoglobins are blue with glasses and likely have hair.

Nutsoglobins will ask Mario and Luigi questions about Bowser. Before taking the quiz, the player can ask Bowser questions through the Nutsoglobin. Each question costs five coins. When the player is done asking questions, they can take the quiz. The Nutsoglobin will then ask the bros. three questions about the information Bowser just gave. Mario and Luigi must answer all the questions correctly, or be forced to fight 1-3 Tenderlings and redo the quiz. If the Mario Bros. answer each question correctly, they will be given 50 coins and the Nutsoglobin will tell the bros. which pipe to take. Not long after, the player will meet two more Nutsoglobins, the second will ask Mario and Luigi five questions, while the third will ask seven. The coin reward multiplies by two every time, and there will be different questions for each Nutsoglobin. They will quiz the player on past information that the player received from Bowser.

The Nutsoglobins' hints are not needed to get through the Flab Zone, so their quizzes are entirely optional.
