King Lakitu, sometimes referred to as Giga Lakitu, is a boss appearing in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2. He is a large Lakitu that is fought in the Yoshi Star Galaxy in the mission Spiny Control.
King Lakitu is an overweight Lakitu that has a purple shell and rides on a purple cloud with yellow eyes (same color scheme as Dark Boo). He has a gold crown and wears a pair of glasses along with a red and white ruff around his neck.
King Lakitu mainly attacks by throwing Spinies at Mario. Mario will need to use Yoshi for the battle. Luckily, there is a Yoshi Egg in the area. After King Lakitu throws a Spiny, Mario will need to use Yoshi to eat it. After the Spiny has been eaten, Yoshi will need to spit the enemy out at King Lakitu. After he is hit, King Lakitu will throw even more Spinies and move at a faster pace. After King Lakitu is hit again, he will unleash a new attack. He will grow bigger and move around the stage, releasing lightning from underneath his cloud. This attack will instantly defeat Yoshi. After he is done with the attack, King Lakitu will continue throwing even more Spinies. After he is hit once more, he will be knocked back and fall through his cloud. Mario is granted the Power Star after this. King Lakitu can be stunned by shooting a Star Bit at him. He will also sometimes stop and laugh at the player, leaving him open to be attacked by the player.
