― Description
PM Mystical Key
Yakkey is first seen after Mario opens a chest in Tubba Blubba's room of his castle. Yakkey then admits to Mario that he does unlock the wind mill that leads to the secret to Tubba Blubba's invincibility. However, Yakkey yells out to Tubba Blubba waking him up.


  • Yakkey is one of few characters in the series that counts as both a character and an item. Another example is the Boo's Portrait and Spangle from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.
  • Yakkey's name is a pun of "yak" which means to talk a lot and "key" which he is shaped as.
