Nabbit (トッテン, Totten) is a recurring character from the Mario series.
Nabbit made his debut in New Super Mario Bros. U as an enemy and has become a recurring character in later Mario games. He is a purple rabbit-like character with large eyes who wears a white handkerchief with a drawing of a large mouth with sharpened teeth, black limbs, white gloves, and orange shoes. He is often seen carrying a large sack over his shoulder.
Nabbit is a thief who steals items from a Toad House. After completing some levels, a Toad asks the players to retrieve the items Nabbit had stolen. Nabbit then appears in a specific level in the first seven worlds where the players have the option to try and catch him within 100 seconds.
Nabbit quickly runs across the stage and can be stunned by sliding, fireballs, or Koopa Shells for two seconds. If the players catch him by the 100-second time limit, they will be rewarded by Toad with a P-Acorn. If the players fail to catch him three times, Nabbit flees and disappears until the conditions are met once more. Additionally, if the player waits after defeating all the enemies in an Enemy Course, and does not grab the power-up they receive as a reward, Nabbit will come in and swipe it.
Nabbit appears in New Super Luigi U, reprising his role from the original game, but also as a playable character. Unlike other playable characters, Nabbit cannot use power-ups, as any power-ups he collects are converted into 1-Ups at the end of the level. He also cannot ride Yoshis, or grab objects or other players. However, he is immune to damage from all enemy attacks (though he can still get knocked back by tougher enemies) and general hazards, with the exception of falling into a pit, lava, or poison, getting crushed by certain obstacles, or running out of time.
Nabbit makes another playable appearance in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, the Nintendo Switch port of the original game where he is now allowed into the original levels. He retains his properties from New Super Luigi U, and provides an additional 100 seconds to the timer; however, completing courses as Nabbit in single-player mode prevents the 100% completion of the game.
As a stage hazard
While on the stage, Nabbit chases fighters and tries to catch them with his bag. Once a fighter is caught, he attempts to blast off in a trail of smoke towards the upper blast line, much like the Beetle and Boss Galaga items. Nabbit is treated as a fighter, and is therefore vulnerable to attacks, grabs, and items, and like regular fighters, he can be knocked back further the more he has been damaged. He can be Inhaled by Kirby, but doing so provides no Copy ability, and he will instead turn into a star and take medium knockback.
In Smash Tour
Nabbit appears as a random event in Smash Tour. He moves along the map picking up any item he comes across, and whoever bumps into him retrieves his whole loot.
As a stage hazard
Nabbit returns as a stage hazard in the returning Mushroom Kingdom U stage.
Nabbit also appears as an Advanced-class support spirit.
