First appearance Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

Rocko is a member of the Pianta syndicate and a lackey of Don Pianta who appears in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Goombella refers to him as "the low man on the totem pole", as he was recently employed. Rocko works as a bouncer and keeps the Pianta Parlor running smoothly. Rocko looks a lot like Vinny and Tony.

Tattle information[edit]

  • That's Rocko, of the Piantas. He's the muscle that keeps the parlor moving smoothly. He's new to the Pianta syndicate. I think he's still low man on the totem pole.
