- “The truth is obvious. The guilty party sits among us. It is none other than Mario!”
- —Pianta prosecutor, Super Mario Sunshine
The Pianta prosecutor is a character who appears in Super Mario Sunshine. During the courthouse cutscene, he testifies against Mario and pushes for the guilty verdict. He states his opinion of the vandalism and is the possible cause of Mario's community service job. He makes a small reappearance during the ending scene.
- In the Japanese version of Super Mario Sunshine, the prosecutor mispronounces every instance of "Shine" as "Shrine," as well as mispronouncing "aware" as "of where" at one point. He also has a different tone, sounding much less stern.
