Il Piantissimo (モンテマン Monteman?) is a character from Super Mario Sunshine who is a human who wears a Pianta costume. He will challenge Mario to race for different Shine Sprites around Isle Delfino. His running, jumping, swimming, and sliding style is the same as Mario's and Shadow Mario's but without F.L.U.D.D. He appears at the end of the credits in Super Mario Sunshine where it shows him standing right beside Bowser Jr.'s paintbrush on Gelato Beach.
Although Il Piantissimo is absent in Toadstool Tour, the scoreboard mentions his name.
Although Il Piantissimo is absent in Advance Tour, the scoreboard mentions his name.
- If the player hacks in and removes Il Piantissimo's mask, it resembles the face of the Running Man or the Postman from The Legend Of Zelda series.
