The Giant Sockop is a character in the Nintendo DS game Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story who lives in Dimble Wood and is the boss of the area's Sockops[1]. It appears as Luigi is chasing four smaller Sockops who recently kidnapped Mario while searching for Attack Pieces. The Sockop with Mario jumps into the leader's mouth and Luigi jumps in after him, then the Giant Sockop sucks in some Scutlets who fight Luigi. After the battle, Luigi spots Mario getting poisoned in the Sockop's digestive acid. Luigi repeatedly hammers it, sending Mario flying and causing him to land deeper in the wood, and causing the Sockop to shrink to typical Sockop size. Luigi then uses the Sockop to his advantage and rides it over thorns and fools many more Sockops. After catching up with the Sockop trio, Luigi gets out and wakes up Mario. The fourth Sockop regains consciousness and they are all defeated by Mario and Luigi.
