Big Bad Bugaboom is the third Power Star in Honeyhive Galaxy. The objective is to defeat Bugaboom.

Mission[edit]

The Mandibugs have started attacking nearby planets, and to end the invasion, the leader of the Mandibugs, Bugaboom, must be defeated. To reach him, the player must travel through the starting planet, avoiding Boulders, Slurples, Piranha Plants, and Mandibugs along the way. Using a Bubble Blaster, they must go to the area at the bottom of the waterfall and travel through the tunnel to meet Queen Bee. On the other side of a pole is a small room with a Life Mushroom and some enemies. Once they arrive, Queen Bee asks them to help her and gives them a Launch Star that connects to the Mandibug Planet.

There are two small platforms before the Mandibug Planet that help the player reach the planet through Banandelions and the Bee Mushroom. The player then lands on the Bugaboom Planet, starting a battle with Bugaboom. To defeat Bugaboom, his back must be Ground Pounded three times. The first time, Bugaboom charges at the player on the ground, and the player must use a Bee Mushroom to get higher than it before and then Ground Pounding. The second time, Bugaboom starts flying, and the player must fly up to some nearby honeycombs. They need to stay there until Bugaboom passes below them while avoiding his bombs. Finally, after the second hit, Bugaboom grows angry and starts flying faster as well as sideways, preventing the player from attacking him. They must wait until he flips back, and then use the Banandelions to get above him. When Bugaboom is defeated, a Power Star appears.
