- —Moai, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
The moai is a stone head in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its 3DS remake Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, residing in Guffawha Ruins. After Mario contracts Bean Fever, the Toad doctor tells Luigi that the cure is Crabbie Grass located in Guffawha Ruins. The residents in Little Fungitown warn Luigi that the mission will be very dangerous, and mention the creature, describing it as a horrible and villainous monster which strips flesh, breaks bones, and sucks blood from its victims. This frightens him so much that he becomes too scared to encounter it, so he visits Psycho Kamek (or Dr. Toadley in the remake) to calm himself down and meet it.
When Luigi meets the monster, it is revealed to actually be a nice and misunderstood moai; it is furious of people spreading rumors of it being a monster, so it challenges Luigi to a minigame to help it release its stress. The moai launches fireballs, while Luigi stands on a few moving platforms to jump over these projectiles. He has to avoid all fireballs for thirty seconds to win. If he is hit or if he falls from the platforms, Luigi has to redo it. After Luigi wins, the moai lets him continue on his quest for the Crabbie Grass.
