Big Grinders are larger versions of Grinders that only appear in New Super Mario Bros. 2. They act the same as normal Grinders. These Grinders are extremely common in World 3-Castle course icon, along with their regular counterparts. They also reappear in the third level of the Impossible Pack, and like normal Grinders, they can only be defeated with an Invincibility Leaf and a Super Star. They tend to come from the ceiling or from underwater and chase the player for a while before retreating.
