Li'l Miss Marshmallow (マシュマロちゃん, Mashumaro-chan) is an optional boss in Mother 3. She is King P's robotic maid, who bears a resemblance to Electra, Pokey's human maid, while he worked as a business consultant for Geldegarde Monotoli, in EarthBound. It is possible that Li'l Miss Marshmallow was designed in Electra's likeness.
During the party's escape from Fassad and two other Pigmasks, they come upon a room inhabited by Li'l Miss Marshmallow. If spoken to, she reveals her name and that the room belongs to "King P". The battle is avoidable and is not required to complete the game: she only initiates battle if Lucas and co. attempt to touch the yo-yo in the northwestern part of the room in a glass case, causing her to yell at him before the fight begins. When she sustains enough damage in battle, Li'l Miss Marshmallow activates her Ultra Ticked-Off System which changes her sprite and allows her to use stronger attacks that hit all party members, rather than being restricted to single targets. As a machine, she can be affected by a Saltwater Gun.
Once she is defeated, she slumps, sways, and falls to the ground before yelling nonsensical phrases and exploding. After this, the party automatically takes the Friend's Yo-Yo from its glass case. The fight against Li'l Miss Marshmallow can be avoided by simply not examining the yo-yo in King P's playroom, however defeating her in battle is the only way of being able to obtain the Friend's Yo-Yo.
L'il Miss Marshmallow's battle sound is Battle Sound 51 which falls under Code Numbers 912. For a regular attack, 913 for Smaaaash! and 914 for Miss.
