Park director, Super Mario Sunshine

The park director,[1][2] or simply the director, is an elderly Noki that is the director of Pinna Park in Super Mario Sunshine. He is first seen in Pinna Park, telling Mario how the park become less popular because it has not had a new attraction. After Mecha-Bowser emerges out of the small pool of water at the northwest end of the park, the park director believes that the spectacle is a new show and that Mario and Shadow Mario are its stars. To improve the show, he allows Mario to use Pinna Park's roller coaster to defeat Mecha-Bowser. When the battle ends, the park director calls Mario a hero for emerging triumphant and putting on a great show. The park director is later seen throughout most of the missions of Pinna Park, as well as the ending scene of the game.
