Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury


Jarrod Garripoli

Thwomps are a classic Mario enemy, resembling giant slabs of stone that have faces on them. While Thwomps would mostly attempt to crush you whenever you got close in some games, the ones in 3D World function a little differently. They are on a cycle and will fall down and rise up on their own, whether you are near them or not. Since touching them doesn’t actually hurt you, you are able to stand on top of them. Thwomps are impervious to any attack, so they cannot be defeated at all.
