Nokis are one of several species native to Isle Delfino hailing from Noki Bay but live all across the isle. They are small creatures that inhabit seashells similar to hermit crabs. They first appeared in Super Mario Sunshine. Nokis appear in Gelato Beach, Pinna Park, Sirena Beach, and their homeland, Noki Bay, where they are the only inhabitants. They are a type of turtle.
