“What's this?! You say you need to repair some silly old airship?! Why, I could never part with any of my precious Power Moons! It sounds to me like someone wants to be a snack for my adorable Chain Chompikins!”
Madame Broode, Super Mario Odyssey

Madame Broode is the manager of the Broodals, a group of evil, rabbit-like wedding planners originating from the Moon appearing in Super Mario Odyssey, which are hired by Bowser to plan the wedding between Peach and himself. Madame Broode is a large, female rabbit with hair alternating between turquoise and blue that curls at the ends, wearing a red dress and hat resembling Pauline's concert clothes as well as a pearl necklace on which, in the first encounter, the Multi Moon Mario needs to power the Odyssey is used as a pendant. She is the ruler of Rabbit Ridge in the Dark Side of the Moon, though she is never seen there. She owns and controls a golden pet Chain Chomp named Chain Chompikins, who has its own respective hat similar to Madame Broode's hat.

Madame Broode shares some similarities to Bowser, such as general design, particularly in the muzzle shape, facial/cranial structure and spiked wristbands, as well as the fact that she uses her face as a figurehead for the Broodals' airship and the RoboBrood, while her minions somewhat invoke the Koopalings. Despite being the Broodals' boss, she is never seen interacting with them.

Mario fighting Madame Broode and Chain Chompikins

In Super Mario Odyssey, Madame Broode is introduced in the Cascade Kingdom. During her fight with Mario, Madame Broode attacks with Chain Chompikins, which Mario has to control with Cappy. When controlled, Madame Broode tries to catch him with her hand, getting tired after a few swipes. The player should then move away from her and pull Left Stick to wind up, allowing him to send it flying at her after releasing Left Stick to score a hit. Madame Broode will then send Chompikins spinning at Mario. After a while or when she gets hit by him that Mario controlled using Cappy, she uses the spin attack again. By sending Chain Chompikins flying at her, Mario scores the next hit. However, when Mario takes control of Chain Chompikins, Madame Broode will try to attack Mario to get him out and he must wait for her to tire before he can yank the chain. After each hit, they drop sixteen coins; and after the third hit, they are defeated, disappear in a cloud of smoke, and leave behind a Multi Moon.

She is fought a second and final time in the Underground Moon Caverns as the penultimate boss in the Moon Kingdom, where she attacks Mario out of revenge for both her earlier encounter with him and his defeat of all the Broodals. This time, Chain Chompikins wears three top hats, five in the last phase, and Madame Broode attacks more when Mario takes control of the chomp, but the fight is otherwise unchanged. After they are defeated, they leave behind sixteen coins. After this encounter, although she does not appear in Rabbit Ridge, where each of the Broodals are fought, it is possible to fight her again by re-entering the Underground Moon Caverns.

  • As the boss of the Broodals, Madame Broode shares several traits with them, but is somewhat different in a number of ways. Unlike them, she has her own battle theme (though it is a remix of the original Broodal boss theme) and the Broodals' intro music does not play at her encounter.
  • Chain Chompikins' collar resembles that of a Chain Chomplet.
  • When Madame Broode throws Chain Chompikins, it resembles a yo-yo trick called "Walk the Dog," a nod to the fact Chain Chomps are known to act like dogs.
  • She is the only boss in the game not to have an edited post-game rematch. However, she can still be re-fought at any time in the Honeylune Ridge caves.
  • If one listens closely, Chain Chompikins' bark is higher in pitch compared to that of a regular Chain Chomp's bark.
