Pianta, Super Mario Sunshine

The Pianta mayor,[1] or simply the mayor, is the mayor of Pianta Village in Super Mario Sunshine. He mostly hangs around a gold Mushroom in the middle of the city with his mother, who is an orange female Pianta wearing glasses. He is also known to go down to the entrance when a catastrophe is happening (such as when one particular Pianta accidentally lets her pets loose). He can be a little childish at times, often wanting to indulge in very dangerous activities that may harm him, such as holding on to floating fluffs in the Fluff Festival, but he is also known to be very brave, as shown when he chooses to stay behind to evacuate all the villagers during a Coo Coo attack on the village. He seems to have a wife, but she is never seen. The mayor also has a secret cash stash, located in the sun. If Mario sprays the cash stash with FLUDD in Episode 8 of Pianta Village, he will earn a Shine Sprite. The wife is also said to have a cash stash, as a female Pianta next to a tree with fruit mentions in Episode 5. Hers is located in the moon, which contains a blue coin.

The Pianta mayor also appears as a Villager type in the Super Mario Mash-up of Minecraft alongside the Isle Delfino Police, the hotel manager, and some other standard Piantas.
