Lakitu is an enemy in the Super Mario series, who rides around in a floating cloud while throwing Spiny eggs at Mario. Ever since his first appearance in Super Mario Bros., he has reappeared in many Mario games.
In Super Mario 64, Lakitu does appear as an enemy in Tiny-Huge Island and Rainbow Ride (along with Sunshine Isles in the DS version). A pair of Lakitus, known as the Lakitu Bros., operate the camera in Super Mario 64. They follow Mario throughout his journey and give him hints in the game. Since they operate the camera, they are never usually seen in the game. However, a player can see them in the intro, ending, and mirror room.
