Glamdozer is a boss who appears in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2. She is fought in the first level of the Flipsville Galaxy. Her name is a portmanteau of glamorous and dozer.

Appearance[edit]

Glamdozer is a large, obese Pupdozer, with pink skin over the top half of her body and a yellow underbelly. Glamdozer wears a crown, and has effeminate eyelashes, puffy cheeks, pink lips, purple claws, as well as green eyes lined with blue eyeshadow.

Strategy[edit]

To defeat Glamdozer, the player must flip to the underside of the boss area and slam the sleeping beast with a Ground Pound through the central gate. This will get her attention. Then, he or she must return to the underside of the platform and try to hit her again. If Glamdozer isn't standing over a gate, the player must stand on the nearest gate and wait until she charges toward it. She can also fire large flaming orbs that can get caught in the gates, making it impossible for the player to flip it. Glamdozer can also chase the player to the other side of the arena as well. When hit two more times, Glamdozer will get angry and will have faster attacks and more awareness. After Glamdozer is defeated, a Power Star will appear.

Trivia[edit]

  • Glamdozer and Giga Lakitu are the only bosses in the game whose names aren't mentioned in the Star title of their mission. However, while Giga Lakitu's name is never revealed, Glamdozer's name is mentioned by Blue Toad on the Starshroom floating above her arena.
  • Glamdozer is somewhat similar to a huge green Electrokoopa in Super Mario Sunshine. Both are larger versions of their species, both are found sleeping when they are first seen, and both are defeated in the same way. However, the huge green Electrokoopa is defeated immediately after Mario flips the gate it was above, while he actually has to fight Glamdozer after waking her up.
