Isle Delfino is a sunny drenched island in which Super Mario Sunshine takes place. It is shaped like a dolphin and populated by Piantas, Nokis, Yoshis and Tanookis. Mario, Peach, Toadsworth and some Toads took a trip to this island. It was protected by 120 Shine Sprites that gathered at the Shine Gate before Bowser Jr. as Shadow Mario wreaked havoc on the island causing them to flee. Mario gets framed for causing havoc among the island and he can't leave until he gets all of the shine sprites back. It also appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a default stage.


The predominant indigenous race are the Piantas and Tanookis live on Isle Delfino although there are also other species like the indigenous Noki who live mainly at Noki Bay on the coast. Many Yoshis from Dinosaur Island have immigrated to the island.
