After Hoo loses three lives, it uses the Joy Vibe and lays a bunch of eggs on the platform, breaking it. Peach will fall with Hoo flying after her for the whole battle. Hoo must be hit on the head twice; Peach must use her Joy Vibe to hover over it. However, Hoo shields itself while Peach uses the vibe, requiring her to deactivate it while floating above it. After being defeated, Hoo summons a whirlwind and disappears; Peach touches the ground.
