Parent species Mandibug

The Stink Bug Parent[1], also known as Mandibugs[2] is a mini-boss appearing in Super Mario Galaxy and its sequel. It is a large Mandibug with a smaller Mandibug on its back. It appears in Super Mario Galaxy in the Honeyhive Galaxy mission Trouble on the Tower, and Super Mario Galaxy 2 in the Puzzle Plank Galaxy mission The Puzzling Picture Block (after the puzzle on the final planet is solved), serving as a sort of mini-boss in both games. To defeat the Stink Bug Parent, Mario or Luigi must first defeat the offspring on top with a Ground Pound. Upon doing so, the Stink Bug Parent will become angry and approach Mario faster than a regular Mandibug. Defeating it reveals the Power Star. In Super Mario Galaxy 2, it shares its boss theme with King Lakitu, which in turn is a variation of Baron Brrr's boss theme from Super Mario Galaxy; in the first game, it has no theme at all.
