Big Bully is a large Bully working for the Koopa Troop that appears in the games Super Mario 64, Super Mario 64 DS, and Mario Kart DS. Like their smaller counterparts, the Big Bully resembles a large black sphere with yellow horns and green shoes. It also has a resemblance to a Bob-omb.

In battle, Big Bully will ram into Mario, attempting to shove him into the lava. Big Bully's attacks do not hurt Mario; if pushed into the lava, however, Mario will take a lot of damage.

Big Bully battling Yoshi in Mario Kart DS

In Super Mario 64, Mario (or Yoshi, Luigi and Wario depending on the version) fights two Big Bullies in Lethal Lava Land. The first one appears in the mission Boil the Big Bully. In battle, Mario is unable to damage the Big Bully with his attacks, instead having to hit the Big Bully into the lava, which will cause it to melt. If the Big Bully is pushed onto the sinking platform next to his own, it will try to return to its normal place, and even stop fighting Mario.

The next time Big Bully appears is in the mission, Bully the Bullies. Mario must defeat three regular Bullies in combat, after doing so Big Bully will fall from the sky and immediately attack. Again, Mario must push the large Bully into the lava.

Big Bully's appearance was updated for Nintendo DS titles, the creature's appearance having a pair of collars on his horns. In Mario Kart DS, Big Bully is the first boss of Mission Mode. In this game, Yoshi has to hit Big Bully off of the platform using the Triple Mushrooms.
