Disambiguation: You may be looking for Tanooki Mario.

The Tanooki are a race of large, plump, creatures resembling raccoons. They are found in and around Isle Delfino. Two of them are known for running the Blue Coin shop, in Super Mario Sunshine. Another Tanooki, found in Noki Bay, runs the mud boat shop. Also, in Super Mario Bros. 3, Mario and Luigi can obtain a Tanooki Suit. While wearing it, the player can temporarily fly, (in the same manner as Raccoon Mario), and also turn themselves into statues.

Their name is probably derived from Tanuki, the Japanese name of the raccoon dog.
