Snoutlet, Mario & Luigi: Brothership

Snoutlet is a major character from Mario & Luigi: Brothership. He is a flying piggy bank-like creature who acts as Mario and Luigi's advisor throughout their adventure in Concordia where he resides. Despite his appearance, he angrily denies being a pig. His role seems to be similar to Stuffwell, Starlow, and Prince Dreambert from previous Mario & Luigi titles as the brothers' primary companion. His name is a portmanteau of "snout", referring to a pig's nose, and "outlet", which refers to an electrical output socket.
