|Behind the Scenes|
The Mockiwi is a bird-like predator from the Mockiwi family. As it is the first Mockiwi to be found, it is ultimately what made up the group's namesake.
The Mockiwi is a large, two-legged carnivorous creature who fills in the niche more seem in common Red Bulborb. Its body is covered in yellow, hair-like feathers that evolved from more versatile feathers when its kind used to fly. It has a large, duck-like beak with no teeth, and it stands on two sturdy legs with brown, two-toed feet.
Mockiwis are considered aggressive, solitary creatures despite their seemingly bird-like ancestry. Noted by Captain Olimar, it spends much of its time resting, becoming more active when hungry and out hunting for food.
Ground-dwellers, the Mockiwi makes shallow dens in softer soil, using its large beak and hardened toes for digging. These dens are coined as "birdholes", and can seemingly house a surprisingly large amount of Mockiwi.
