F.L.U.D.D. (an acronym of Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device) is the main deuteragonist of Super Mario Sunshine. It's Mario's ally throughout the game and assists him in various ways. F.L.U.D.D. is originally invented by E. Gadd so Mario can use it to spray the graffiti all over Isle Delfino.
F.L.U.D.D is voiced by Kit Harris.
F.L.U.D.D. is Mario's partner throughout Super Mario Sunshine. A water pack and pump in one, he is capable of hosing down various things such as the paint plaguing Isle Delfino, putting out fires, and with the other nozzles, offer Mario hovering capabilities, super jumps, or give a speed boost. His abilities are vital to aid Mario on his journey.
- When F.L.U.D.D. scans Mario in Super Mario Sunshine, a little window in the bottom left corner shows short gameplay clips of various Mario franchise games, such as Super Mario Bros., Super Mario World, and Super Mario 64. After Bowser is beaten at the end of the game and F.L.U.D.D. is looking at Mario, the window shows the Game Over screen from Mario Bros.. In addition, in the bottom right corner, the titles of several other Mario games that Mario had been in up to and including that point are shown, though they are backwards with no spaces between the words, so they normally cannot be read by the player. The game titles as they are displayed when F.L.U.D.D. scans Mario are as follows: MARIO BROS, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, and Super Mario Sunshine ("KART" is misspelled "KIRT" in the game titles for Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64, which is likely due to a mistranslation of the kā syllable in their Japanese titles).
- In Super Mario Sunshine during the cutscene at Pinna Park, F.L.U.D.D. is revealed to have the Gadd Science Inc. logo at the base of its nozzle. However, this is the only time F.L.U.D.D. is shown to have it present.
- During development of Super Mario Sunshine, F.L.U.D.D. was planned to feature a water gun nozzle, but the idea was scrapped due to controversy in the United States at the time.
