May I ask where in any official content was a difference recognized between these and normal Thwomps? ~Uniju(T-C-E)

Possibly the Official Nintendo Player's Guide - they list all the enemies in front. I don't have it, but if someone else does could they confirm this? That's the only source I know that lists all the official names of the game's enemies. -- Son of Suns (talk)
Does this confirm it? It doesn't have anything in it, but it states the name we have given for this article. C???
It doesn't officially confirm it, but TMK is a pretty good source, so this name is most likely official. -- Son of Suns (talk)

I have the guide and I can confirm they do give they do call the Big Thwomp "Super Thwomp". --Blitzwing 16:09, 17 December 2008 (EST)

Big Thwomp[edit]

Should this be moved to Big Thwomp? It is what they are called in New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition, making it their most recent name. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 20:56, 7 February 2017 (EST)

They are called "Super Thwomp" in Super Mario Maker, though. But if "Big Thwomp" is the most recent name, then yes it should be moved as per policy. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:20, 7 February 2017 (EST)
In Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, if a Super Mushroom is added to an enemy, it is called "big" (no capital). Although I didn't see Thwomp after big, I still believe it would be called big Thwomp. Anyways, I support the move to Big Thwomp.

Super Princess Peach[edit]

Generally speaking, "Big" enemies are just bigger versions of enemies (though some like Big Goomba sometimes gain additional attibutes, in that case splitting into two). The unnamed Thwomp guard from Super Princess Peach is entirely different and bears no resemblance to an incarnation of Big Thwomp. It is in no way similar to a Thwomp besides its design and instead remains in the background, periodically opening its eyes and scanning the room, and if it detects Peach and Perry in a position that doesn't match a nearby statue, it will suck them up and send them to the beginning of the hall. Due to these differences, it should be split from Big Thwomp. LinkTheLefty (talk) 22:44, 15 September 2018 (EDT)

Perhaps we should name that Thwomp "Security Thwomp" until further notice? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:28, 16 September 2018 (EDT)
If there are no objections, then let's go with that. LinkTheLefty (talk) 04:27, 5 December 2018 (EST)
