- “I hereby order the defendant to clean this entire island. Until Isle Delfino is completely free of his vile handiwork, Mario shall not be allowed to leave!”
- —Pianta judge, Super Mario Sunshine
The Pianta judge is a character who holds trial for Mario when the Isle Delfino locale is vandalized by a figure resembling him in Super Mario Sunshine. Although Peach and Toadsworth try to object, the Pianta judge overrules their objection and pleads Mario guilty. The judge then orders Mario to clean up all the goop that Shadow Mario created during his vandalism spree. The judge is seen much later in the game, dancing with all of the other Piantas and Nokis after Mario saves Delfino Plaza and all of Isle Delfino.
