Beni (Japanese: ムベ Mube) is a member of the Galaxy Team who runs the Wallflower, the village canteen in Jubilife Village. He also serves as Kamado's right-hand man.

He bears a striking resemblance to Wally, but the relationship between them, if any, is unknown.

Beni immigrated to Hisui from an unspecified region, after he and Kamado's hometown was burned down by maddened Pokémon. Kamado and Beni then came to Hisui, where he opened up the Wallflower. His signature dish is potato mochi, made using Sootfoot Roots.

If the player talks to Beni at the Wallflower with any Sootfoot Roots in their satchel, Beni will offer to buy them from the player for  100 apiece.

During the game's climax, Beni obstructs the player at the Stone Portal, to the player's surprise. Using a Smoke Bomb, he changes into his ninja attire and challenges the player to battle. After being defeated, Beni acknowledges his respect for the player's skills, and asks them to bring Kamado to reason.

In the post-game, Beni can be battled at the Training Grounds by speaking to Ingo. He can be battled by himself or as part of the Galaxy Team's Path of Tenacity challenge.

Jubilife Village

Wallflower
"Well now, aren't you awfully suspicious?"
"The Wallflower's for Galaxy Team folk only. We don't have seats for outsiders. Move along!"
  • After passing trial
"Does the Survey Corps really have the leeway to be enjoying a leisurely meal with this outsider?"
"Your captain just ordered 10 whole portions of potato mochi, you know. The slow progress on that Pokédex of yours clearly has her on edge."
"Have you all heard the grave news? That frenzied Kleavor from the rumors... It ended up mauling some of our Galaxy folks who went out to investigate it this morning. The Medical Corps has had a hard time getting all the injured back on their feet..."
  • After defeating Noble Kleavor
"The whole village is gossiping up a storm about our young friend here, you know. He/She's got quite some luck to have come back unharmed after facing off against that Kleavor."
Inside Kamado's office
"<player>! We have a situation here!"
"Last I saw, she was at the Wallflower, polishing off a big ol' plate of potato mochi. Not that I blame her—my cooking is simply irresistible, after all."
Front Gate
"Found her by the scent of my mochi, did you? Of course you did. When you have my level of skill, your handiwork can be recognized from a mile away."
"Remember to be thankful for getting to eat such masterful mochi when you come for dinner later."
"But first, don't you owe Kamado a report? Your meal can wait."
Wallflower
"There you go. Piping-hot potato mochi, fresh from the stove."
