"You are not a Moki, I can tell. Your ears are too floppy."

—Treasure Map Moki, Ori and the Will of the Wisps


The Moki are a species of small creatures in Niwen similar to ferrets, meerkats or lemurs. They are brown and white, with glowing yellow eyes, large ears, long bodies and a long tail.

OverviewEdit

Moki are commonly seen in the gloomy Inkwater Marsh (where their village is located) and Kwolok's Hollow.

Moki are harmless and helpful to Ori, but very shy. They are fast and agile, allowing them to avoid danger. Moki dislike bright light, preferring twilight, night and shady areas. They have a close relationship with Kwolok, the toad-like guardian of the Marsh, but greatly fear Howl.

Moki describe the Silent Woods as "the home we left behind".

There is a total of 17 interactable Moki in the game, not counting those in cutscenes.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps Edit

When Ori first comes to Niwen, they are surrounded by a group of curious Moki. They are then frightened away by Shriek's calls.

After Ku is injured in Silent Woods, a group of Moki surround her and Ori. After the Voice of the Forest's failed healing of Ku, the Moki tell Ori that they will watch over her.

At the entrance to Mouldwood Depths, Moki will tell Ori to be careful, then pull a lever, opening the door to Mouldwood Depths.

After the becoming of Ori as the Spirit Tree, various Moki along with Ku, Naru, and Gumo take care of the tree, each one eventually fading away in turn.
