Sprixies are fairy-like creatures that first appeared in Super Mario 3D World. They are the native residents to the Sprixie Kingdom, ruled by the seven Sprixie Princesses. The name Sprixie is a portmanteau of "sprite" and "pixie," which are considered synonymous with "fairy." They bear some resemblance to the Subcons from Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic/Super Mario Bros. 2, as well as Jojora from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They live on another planet. Their gender ratio is unknown.

Sprixies appear in various levels and areas of each world, providing assistance to Mario and co. throughout the game. In certain areas, some appear with a pair of binoculars which (when viewed) shows the direction of the Goal Pole, similar to Binoculars in Super Mario 3D Land.

They also own and host the stamp-providing Sprixie Houses, the Mystery Houses, and the Lucky Houses.


Sprixies are rather small, no bigger than Mario and his friends are. Their back has wings that allow them to fly. Their eyes are all black ovals that have white pupils that can easily be mistaken for the glare of a light (i.e. the Sun).
