Variant of Cosmic Clone

Big Cosmic Clones[1] are a larger variant of Cosmic Clone that appears in Super Mario 3D Land. They are four times larger than their original counterparts, have a lower-pitched voice, and can also break Brick Blocks. They otherwise act the same as regular Cosmic Clones. They appear once the player reaches a certain point in a stage and mimic their movements. They can be defeated in the same way as regular Cosmic Clones: by reaching the end of the stage, touching them while invincible, or crossing a point they cannot. The player receives ten coins after defeating them by using the former two methods. Big Cosmic Clones appear in Special 7-4, Special 7-Castle, Special 8-3, Special 8-5, and Special 8-Crown.
