After Mario succeeds in breaching in his Mushroom Starfighter and blowing up Koop Star's foundation with a Bob-omb, Darth Koopa and Mouser are forced to retreat to their Space Raft. As the Space Raft is an inflatable vehicle, it is blown around a bit by Koop Star's explosion. Despite its appearance, the Space Raft manages to allow Darth Koopa and Mouser to escape, even though they were in the middle of outer space.
