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.

In the core series games

Beni immigrated to Hisui from an unspecified region, after he and Kamado's hometown was burned down by maddened Pokémon. Kamado and Beni started their new life in Jubilife Village, where Beni opened up the Wallflower on Floaro Main Street. His signature dish is potato mochi, made using Sootfoot Roots. His signature Smoke Bombs are also made from Sootfoot Roots. He serves people of Jubilife Village, as well as members of the Galaxy Team between expeditions.

During the game's climax, Beni obstructs the player's way at the Stone Portal on Mount Coronet, under the direction of Kamado. Using a Smoke Bomb, he changes into ninja attire, and tells the player about his experience as a ninja in his younger years. He challenges the player to battle, and after being defeated, Beni acknowledges his respect for the player's skills, and asks them to bring Kamado to reason.

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.

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.
