|Variant of||Winged Strollin' Stu|
A Swipin' Stu (also known as a Flying Goomba, Doro Kuri, and Kuri) is a green variety of Winged Strollin' Stu in Super Mario Sunshine. Swipin' Stus appear in Episode 5, Episode 6, Episode 7, and Episode 8 of Pinna Park on its beach. Swipin' Stus are larger than the blue Winged Strollin' Stus. The green pattern travels over a Swipin' Stu's head, similar to a hoodie. A Swipin' Stu's skin is slightly darker than that of a normal Strollin' Stu. Swipin' Stus attack when Mario walks beneath them, attempting to land on him. If a Swipin' Stu succeeds, it steals his cap and spontaneously sprouts a mustache similar to Mario's. Without his cap, Mario slowly loses health when in direct sunlight. To retrieve his cap, Mario must either ground-pound the Swipin' Stu and take it back or reenter Pinna Park. Swipin' Stus drop five coins when defeated.

- The Swipin' Stu gaining Mario's mustache after stealing and donning his cap coincidentally resembles the capture mechanic from Super Mario Odyssey.
