Thoreau

Handy first buddy
Grabs all except what he can’t
Bosses overuse.

Boomer

Name of modern meme
Can’t live up to Bobbery
Still a useful tool.

Slim

Tornado-shaped friend
Twists your body, slides through holes
Creates illusions.

Thudley

When did the ground pound
Become a guy with a face?
How much does he weigh?

Carrie

Most-used Pixl girl
Ferries Bowser, so she’s strong
Outshined by Dashell.

Fleep

On the can for years
Stunning parallelogram
Just needed TP.

Cudge

Our hammer this time
Is living, breathing, stardust.
Shouts your desired word.

Dottie

Sea urchin shrinks you
But our run speed is the same!
Strength doesn’t shrink too?

Barry

Almost missed this guy
Who’s scared of the lizard nerd.
Useful friend for pits.

Dashell

Best Pixl in game
I didn’t know about him
For over twelve years.

Piccolo

More 8-bit throwbacks
But this one cures diseases.
She’s worth the fetch quest.

Tippi

I forgive you for
The trend of your successors.
Rest and love in peace.

Tiptron

Hollow butterfly
Thinks she is Blumiere’s love
Chameleon-made.
