Presenter, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Presenters (generically referred to in English guides as "moles"[1][2]) are friendly mole-like creatures featured in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its 3DS remake. They resemble Monty Moles, are dressed as presenters, and give presents to Mario and Luigi, such as items, clothing, or badges. In the original game, Presenters are yellow in color, have the shades, hair, and mouths of Mega Moles, and wear red bow ties; in the remake, they simply look like Monty Moles, but still have the bow ties.
