Pupdozers[1] are dinosaur-like enemies from Super Mario Galaxy 2. Pupdozers are only found in the Flipsville Galaxy, where they usually patrol a small area. Mario can only defeat them by using grates to flip them over, causing the weak spot on their bellies to be exposed. Pupdozers are reptilian in appearance; they have a row of purple spikes on their backs, short tails, yellow underbellies with ground pound symbols, and brown backs. Their leader is a giant Pupdozer called Glamdozer.
