Variant of Goop

Burning goop, also known as red gunk,[1] hot gunk,[2] lava,[3] or molten goop,[4] is a type of superheated red-orange goop appearing only in Pianta Village in Super Mario Sunshine. 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 him 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.

During Episode 1, burning goop is produced by feverish Chain Chomplets, though their type does not produce Swoopin' Stus. In Episode 3, burning goop 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. In Episode 6, small puddles of burning goop trap ten Piantas, whom Mario has to rescue. In Episode 7, a trail of burning goop is left behind by Shadow Mario as he runs, and he occasionally paints his distinctive M signature out of burning goop.
