“What is the secret you're seeking? I know it, I know it, ha HA! I can't tell you, but I'll give you a clue: (name of the Power Moon) ♪ It's hiding somewhere and no peeking! ♪ Go find it, go find it, scra-CAW!”
Talkatoo, Super Mario Odyssey

Talkatoo is a yellow parrot wearing a brown explorer's hat from Super Mario Odyssey. It appears across multiple kingdoms and likes to gives names of Power Moons to Mario when consulted. Talkatoo's message consists of this recurring sentence: "I can't tell you, but I'll give you a clue: (name of the Power Moon) ♪ It's hiding somewhere and no peeking! ♪ Go find it, go find it, scra-CAW!". During the fight against Mollusque-Lanceur, Talkatoo merely squawks in fear.

Its name is a portmanteau of "talk" and "cockatoo."
