Rollodillo is a boss in Super Mario Galaxy 2. It is fought in the Boulder Bowl Galaxy in the mission Rock and Rollodillo. Rollodillo shares its boss theme with Sorbetti, Prince Pikante, and Peewee Piranha.


As the name implies, Rollodillo is a large, blue beast that resembles an armadillo. It has a slightly reptilian face with a pointed snout, large cheeks, and a pair of eyes with yellow scleras and red irises. The armor protecting its head, the top half of its body, and its front legs consists of brown, rock-like protrusions, with the armor on its head resembling a pair of horns. Most of its round body is covered in scutes that stop at its hind legs, while the rest of its body is largely covered in fur. Its legs are short and have three brown, hoof-like toes. It also has a small, stubby tail.


It attacks mainly by rolling around the planetoid like a boulder. Mario can only fight Rollodillo as Rock Mario. There are a total of two rounds. When Rollodillo gets dizzy and stops rolling, Mario needs to transform into a boulder and ram into its weak spot, its rear. A Spin Attack is rendered useless against this boss. Mario will need to hit Rollodillo's rear four times to defeat him. After this, the boss explodes and grants Mario the Power Star.
