Prince Florian, Super Mario Bros. Wonder

Prince Florian is the Wiggler-like ruler of the Flower Kingdom, having Poplins and the Talking Flowers as his main subjects. He is Mario and co.'s main ally in Super Mario Bros. Wonder and assists them by equipping badges on top of his crown. After Bowser merges with the Flower Castle, imprisons his subjects, and takes over his kingdom, Florian joins the adventure. He is seen in-game on the shoulders of the character picked as Player 1 when they stand still. In local co-op, Prince Florian rides on the shoulder of the character with the crown.[3]

His name comes from the German male given name "Florian", derived from the Latin words "florens" (blossoming) or "flos" (flower).
