Variant of Cosmic Clone

Big Cosmic Clones[1] are larger variants of Cosmic Clones that appear 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 the 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 by crossing a point they cannot. The player receives ten coins after defeating them using the former two methods. They appear in Special 7-4, Special 7-Castle Icon.png, Special 8-3, Special 8-5, and Special 8-Crown Icon from Super Mario 3D World.
