Snifit Patrol

From the Super Mario Wiki
The Snifit Patrol

The Snifit Patrol, also referred to as Shy Guy Cops[1], is a police force of Snufits in the Space Land board of the Nintendo 64 game Mario Party 2. Players can pay them to set up a "speed trap" when they come across a unit standing by. They chase after speeding Whomps and Thwomps to ensure the safety of the players playing on the board when a player lands on a Happening Space; when a speed trap is set, the chase lasts longer.

Trivia[edit]

  • Despite being called Snifits, they are shown without lower bodies in their icons, and additionally lack the black masks Snifits usually wear. The naming inconsistency is likely due to both species having the same name in Japan at the time, resulting in an overlooked translation.
