Snoodles[1] are a tube worm-based enemy in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2. They look like a plant with a thick green stem and a bubble-like blue head at first sight. However, when Mario or Luigi approaches one of them, they open their eyes. Their only method of attack includes trying to block the brothers from advancing by leaning towards a set location. These enemies can easily be defeated with a Green Shell or even by the light shone by the shell itself. Also the player can shoot two Star Bits at it or even just Spin into it to defeat it. They first appear in the Cosmic Cove Galaxy, and later reappear in the Slimy Spring Galaxy.
