Sprixie Princesses

Sprixies are fairy-like creatures appearing in Super Mario 3D World and its Nintendo Switch port Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. They are the inhabitants of the Sprixie Kingdom, ruled by the seven Sprixie Princesses. The name Sprixie is a portmanteau of "sprite" and "pixie," which are considered synonymous with "fairy." They bear some resemblance to the Subcons from Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic/Super Mario Bros. 2, as well as Jojora from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.

Sprixies appear in various levels and areas of each world, providing assistance to Mario and co. throughout the game. In certain areas, some appear with a pair of binoculars which (when viewed) shows the direction of the Goal Pole, similar to Binoculars in Super Mario 3D Land.

They also own and host the Stamp-providing Sprixie Houses, the Mystery Houses, and the Lucky Houses.
