A Fwoosh from Super Mario 64 DS
|First appearance||Super Mario 64 (1996)|
|Latest appearance||Super Mario 3D All-Stars (2020)|
Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS
In Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS, a single Fwoosh can blow Mario and his cap off Tall, Tall Mountain. Mario cannot defeat the Fwoosh, but Wario can walk right past it with his metal ability. The mountain wall after it is a portal to a secret slide. Yoshi also has the ability to eat the Fwoosh and defeat it by spewing fire at it. The original version depicts the Fwoosh with a partially transparent body, large eyebrows, closed eyes, and a feline-shaped mouth with a happy expression, while the remake gives it a solid, angrier appearance vaguely resembling a Boo. In addition, the DS remake grants the Fwoosh the ability to turn around in order to always face the character. In Super Mario 64 DS, the Fwoosh can be defeated by walking into it while affected by a mushroom.

Mario Party series
Fwoosh has also made appearances in the Mario Party series. In Mario Party, the player can warp from world to world by hopping on one in Mini-Game Island. Fwoosh can also bring the player back to the start in Mario's Rainbow Castle. In Mario Party 3, the player automatically jumps on a Fwoosh when jumping at the last block of Awful Tower, and the players ride Fwoosh during the introduction and ending of Parasol Plummet.
