A Fwoosh is a cloud enemy that first appeared in Super Mario 64. It attacks by blowing strong gusts of wind in order to push characters off high altitudes.


Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS[edit]

A Fwoosh in the original Super Mario 64, preparing to blow Mario from the mountain top.

In Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS, a single Fwoosh will blow Mario and his cap off Tall, Tall Mountain. Mario cannot defeat it 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 it and defeat it by spewing fire at it. The original version depicts them 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 Super Mushroom.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time[edit]

A Fwoosh makes a very small cameo in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. The Fwoosh appears to blow away the smoke from Thwomp Volcano after the mountain's eruption is put out by the Hydrogush 4000.

Mario Party series[edit]

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 conclusion of Parasol Plummet.

Mario Golf: World Tour[edit]
