Lakitus are semi-common enemies in the Mario series. They ride in a special cloud, and although they are related to Koopas, they don't resemble them very much. While Lakitus are enemies in the mainstream Mario games, they are mostly allies or referees in sports games. When enemies, they follow and throw Spiny Eggs at Mario. Their cloud can be used as an item if Mario manages to stomp them. Lakitus are featured in a majority of the main series of Super Mario video games.
While most Lakitus follow the general rule of flying high above their target and throwing Spiny Eggs, they have been shown to take on many different strategies. Some Lakitus throw green Eggs which never hatch and instead roll across the ground. Other Lakitus try to reel in unsuspecting bait by affixing a 1-Up Mushroom to a fishing pole- these are known as Fishin' Lakitus, and they have a spectral counterpart in the Fishin' Boo. There's also a pipe-dwelling subset of Lakitus which are creatively named Lakitu In a Pipe. The strongest and rarest of all is the Thunder Lakitu, who resembles the Japanese god of thunder.
They appear in Super Mario MHL as playable characters, as well as spectators.
Lakitu appears as an unlockable character in P-Floatie Racers. To unlock him, the player must beat the Flower Cup in 150cc. He's a Feather weighter character, his P-Floatie is white-coloured and has his cloud for the decal.
