Lakitu is a character in Mario Kart Wii. In the Mario Kart series, he pulls characters out of bottomless pits, lava, and water. Lakitu takes a long time to put the characters on the road, which a lot of people hate. In other Mario Kart games, he saves characters faster, but takes three coins from them. He is a playable character in Mario Kart 8. He is also the main antagonist in a few episodes of the Super Mario Bros: Super Show!. He puts up the rude finger at Koopa Troopa (although he's nice to him, by pulling him out, like he does to the other characters).
