Lakilester (self-nicknamed Michael, Spike, and Jonathan (Japanese version only)) is Mario's eighth and last party member in Paper Mario. In Super Paper Mario, Lakilester appears as a Catch Card found on the ninetieth floor of the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials. Lakilester is a portmanteau of Lakitu and Lester, and is probably a pun on "lackluster". Lakilester is a partner who joins Mario after Mario defeats him, as well as abandoning the antagonists to do so, very much as Vivian from the sequel, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
