Tanooki are raccoon-like creatures that inhabit Isle Delfino in Super Mario Sunshine. There are three Tanookis seen in the game. One Tanooki and his son live in Delfino Plaza and trade Shine Sprites for Blue Coins. Another Tanooki lives in Noki Bay, where he lets people rent boats for 90,000 coins. He does however allow Mario to rent one for free.
