Super Mario series
New Super Mario Bros.
Big Dry Bones debuted in New Super Mario Bros.; jumping on a Big Dry Bones will merely stun it for a second. While stunned, the enemy's head shakes and makes a noise. Big Dry Bones can only be dismantled with a Ground Pound; the collapsing noise they make when dismantled is low-pitched (similar to Dry Bowser). After about five seconds, the Big Dry Bones comes back together. Mini Mario cannot dismantle them.
Like their smaller species, they are immune to the powers of Fire Flowers.

They have an implied presence in Super Mario Maker and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS. Players can enlarge a standard Dry Bones with a Super Mushroom, process which ends with the creation of bigger Dry Bones. In this game, the hero can attack Big Dry Bones the same way as in past titles.
Mario Party series
Mario Party: Island Tour
Mario Party: Star Rush
A Big Dry Bones, known as Mega Dry Bones, appears in Mario Party: Star Rush as a boss. In his minigame, Mega Dry Bones's Femur Fever, players need to Ground Pound the platform they're standing on to launch a cannonball at him. Each ground pound lights up one light out of three. If all three are filled, a cannonball is launched. If the Ground Pound is done at the peak of their jump, then two lights are lit up instead of just one. The more allies on a player's team, the faster they can launch cannonballs. Mega Dry Bones can also attack by throwing a bone that goes through each players' platforms in a straight line starting at either Player 4 or at Player 1. When Mega Dry Bones' health bar goes past the halfway mark, the bones he throws are now on fire and he attacks more frequently.
