Variant of Strollin' Stu

A Smolderin' Stu,[1] also named Flaming Goomba,[2] Moe Kuri,[3] and Moe Kauri,[4] is a type of Strollin' Stu in Super Mario Sunshine. Its main distinction is the ability to be covered in flames yet be apparently unharmed. A Smolderin' Stu can put Mario on fire on contact. If the flames are removed, its bright red skin becomes a dark charred brown. Smolderin' Stus can be defeated from having FLUDD spray water at them. Smolderin' Stus appear only at Pinna Park in the mission Mecha-Bowser Appears! and at Sirena Beach in the mission King Boo Down Below. In the latter mission, both Smolderin' Stus and the common Strollin' Stus appear in the King Boo boss fight.

Smolderin' Stu's name is also seen as one of the default high scores in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour and Mario Golf: Advance Tour.
