Lakitu, known in Japan as Jugem (ジュゲム) are bespectacled Koopas who ride clouds through the skies, best known for tossing Spiny Eggs that "hatch" into quadruped Koopas called Spinies (トゲゾー). However, Lakitu itself seems to be taking on less evil tasks in other games, such as refereeing races, umpiring tennis and baseball games, and even filming Mario's adventures.

In Super Smash Flash 2

Lakitu appears as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Flash 2 and much like he does in his origin games, Lakitu soars over opponents and drops Spiny Eggs on them that eventually turn into Spines that start walking around, damaging opponents on contact. There are some ample differences between the Lakitu and its Spinies from the ones that appear in the Super Smash Bros. games, the most notable being their design; Lakitu & Spinies in SSF2 take their modern appearance of the characters as opposed to their classic 8-bit appearance. Also, Lakitu is impervious to any damage, meaning it cannot be defeated to prevent it from tossing more Spiny Eggs. Spinies also have some differences, the most notable being that they are treated as projectiles and therefore can be reflected and, oddly, absorbed.



Early designs



  • As seen in the gallery above, Lakitu originally had a different function in the game, taking a similar role to when he appeared in the Mario Kart series instead. Carrying a fishing rod, Lakitu would follow the player around and would fish player if they fall off the stage.
