Parent Species Whomp

Big Whomps[1] are a larger sized species Whomps. They are rather rare types of Whomps, having only two appearances. They are similar to Big Thwomps, as they can also break through Brick Blocks.


New Super Mario Bros.[edit]

One Big Whomp makes an appearance in New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS, where it resides in World 3-Castle NSMB.png. It can be defeated through use of a Ground Pound. It behaves in the same way as normal Whomps, only it can walk around freely instead of staying stationary in the background and falling on Mario or Luigi.

New Super Mario Bros. 2[edit]

Big Whomps reappear in New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS. They appear in World MushroomMushroomicon.png-NSMB2-Castle Course Icon.png and World StarStaricon.png-3. Like the other games Big Whomps can only be defeated with a Ground Pound, Big Whomps are again able to walk around, but they can also be seen in the background. Once a Big Whomp in the background falls, there can be Coins, Roulette Blocks or even a Red Ring behind them.
