Burning goop covering a large portion of Pianta Village
|First appearance||Super Mario Sunshine (2002)|
|Latest appearance||Super Mario 3D All-Stars (2020)|
Burning goop, also known as red gunk, hot gunk, lava, or molten goop, is a type of superheated goop found in Pianta Village in Super Mario Sunshine. It is red-orange in color, and it releases small bursts of flame intermittently. This type of goop deals damage to Mario on contact and sends him flying upward as if he were burnt by fire. Burning goop does not instantly cause Mario to lose a life, unlike lava. Unlike the similar electric goop, burning goop can deal damage to Mario only in certain large quantities, so burning goop cannot hurt Mario in small specks. Swoopin' Stus are regularly spawned from burning goop, just like with regular goop. If Mario gets caught in the middle of a large quantity of burning goop, he most likely loses a life or otherwise sustains heavy damage, as he will have nowhere else to go after flying upward and falling back down. Like most other types of goop, burning goop can be cleaned up by FLUDD's water or from similar sources.
In Episode 1 of Pianta Village (Chain Chomplets Unchained), this goop is produced by feverish Chain Chomplets. It also does not produce Swoopin' Stus during this episode. Burning goop reappears in Episode 3 (The Goopy Inferno), where it covers most of the village and Mario must save the Pianta mayor in his house, which is isolated in the middle of the village. Coo Coos fly around and drop burning goop during this episode. Burning goop is also present in Episode 6 (Piantas in Need), where Mario has to rescue ten Piantas that are stuck in small puddles of burning goop. In Episode 7 (Shadow Mario Runs Wild), Shadow Mario leaves a trail of burning goop behind him as he runs, and he occasionally paints his distinctive M signature (resembling M Graffiti) out of burning goop.
