Body slam (Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story)

From the Super Mario Wiki
Bowser performing body slam.

The body slam is an out-of-battle move in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story that Bowser learns after the Mario Bros. defeat Wisdurm in the Energy Hold, and is required to exit the Tower of Yikk. This move gives Bowser the ability to flip in the air, and ground pound back to the ground. With this, Bowser will be able to trigger big pink switches. This special move can also be used in certain areas such as Bumpsy Plains and Bowser's Castle where there are signs of cracks in the ground. Also, in certain areas, he is able to dodge moving obstacles that will advance him farther in the game. However, Bowser cannot body slam an enemy to start a battle. This move can also be used to activate the golden panels found on the ground with an image of Bowser's shell. After this move is unlocked, Mario and Luigi can enter the Flab Zone whenever they want.
