A group of Mini Wanwan in Super Mario Galaxy

It has been requested that this article be rewritten and expanded to expand on their appearance in Super Mario Galaxy and list their appearances in Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Mini Wanwan are small Chomps that appear in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They act exactly like Chomps but are smaller and have high-pitched barks. Some Mini Wanwan (such as the ones in Chompworks Galaxy) can go in a circular line, something that normal Chomps cannot do.

However, regardless of their size, they can only be defeated by being hit by Rainbow Mario, getting hit by a rubbery bulb, or being held by the co-op player's Star Cursor so that they hit each other. They release Star Bits when defeated.

In Super Mario Galaxy, they are only found in the Infiltrating the Dreadnought mission of Dreadnought Galaxy.
