Full name Reptilian Goliath
Species Reptile
First appearance Wario World (2003)

The Reptilian Goliath[1] (also named Greenfist [2]) is a dinosaur-like boss that appears in Wario World. He is the boss of Greenhorn Forest, the first level. His arena consists of a single, small green platform. To beat him Wario must punch him enough times to stun him, then destroy one of his health skulls with a Piledriver, Wild Swing-Ding, or Mega Toss. He can also lose a health skull just by falling off the battlefield.

Reptilian Goliath has just two attacks. In the first, he attacks Wario with a powerful slam from his fists that flattens Wario on contact. Wario must be standing right in front of Reptilian Goliath for the attack to connect. Reptilian Goliath uses his second attack after receiving some punches from Wario. He charges up and runs after Wario, flailing his arms wildly. This attack gets faster and thus more difficult to dodge as Reptilian Goliath loses health. It is also possible to give Reptilian Goliath two damage by using a Mega Toss and throwing him off the cliff.

After three powerful moves, Reptilian Goliath is defeated, coughs up a large amount of coins and Wario is allowed into Greenhorn Ruins. Reptilian Goliath is the first of the three bosses in Excitement Central. SandWorm is the second, and Dinomighty is the third.



  • On some rare occasions, a glitch will occur where Reptilian Goliath will fall off the battlefield (without a Mega Toss) and lose two skulls instead of one[citation needed].
  • Reptilian Goliath is the only boss in the game to have three skulls instead of the usual five, therefore making it the weakest boss in the game.
