Guffawha Ruins

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
Luigi exploring the ruins.

The Guffawha Ruins are the dusty, deserted structures located at the foot of Hoohoo Mountain that Luigi (under hypnosis) visits during Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga to find a cure for his brother's Bean Fever. In this dungeon, Luigi has to take out a few enemies on his own such as Elite Chuck Guys, Oucher Glasses, and Limbo Bros. He will then have to solve several puzzles. At the end of the level, there is a big rock shaped like a head, the Guffawha Ruins monster, who will ask Luigi to relieve his stress by dodging energy balls he spits out for 30 seconds. Many people in Little Fungitown thought this rock head was a flesh-stripping, bone-crushing, bloodsucking monster, although he doesn't harm Luigi or challenge him to a battle. Guffawha Ruins lies between Teehee Valley and Hoohoo Mountain.

  • Both Mario and Luigi cannot revisit the interior of the Guffawha Ruins from its entrance after they have obtained the Ultra Hammers because the gates will be closed. Hoohoo Mountain Base has a path blocked by black rocks that can be broken by the Ultra Hammer. The path will lead to the temple entrance, which allows both bros to access the buried beans and visit the Presenter that has a Max Nut.
