I have the game,and I toss a shell at Kingfin's body,tail,and fins and it did damage so the "x"s on him are just for making him look better. User:Luigi-Tron 3000
Every single part of kingfin`s body is vulnerable to damage, but i haven`t heard of any special weak points. User:MarioMaster720 27.11.2009
- I always believed that Kingfin's minions were called Bonefins, as if you look, they have a skeletal spine connecting the head and propeller, and Kingfin was simply a 'King Bonefin'. User:Invisibool
I've played this level multiple times as Mario, and seen screenshots, and knew Kingfin had the 'Flashlight Beam Eyes' effect. However, when I played as Luigi, not once did Kingfin's eyes light up. Does anyone else notice this? User:Invisibool
When you play as Luigi, the eyes do not shine their lights. However, once a glitch occured when I played as Mario and the lights did not shine. Anyone know about this? Probably irrelevant, but I was messing with Luigi on the Observatory by jumping on him and shooting him before going to Bonefin Galalxy. :D EDIT: Luigi actually does have something to do with it. I messed w/ him again and the glitch worked. I left the level and reentered without bothering Luigi, and Kingfin's eyes shined their lights. Messed around again and glitch worked. But after that, no matter how many Star Bits or homing ground-pounds I did to Luigi, it didn't work. Can anyone investigate further? If there is a 100% chance of it working, we should add it to the Super Mario Galaxy/Glitches page. If it is a glitch, I suggest the title, "Kingfin's Broken Eyes".User:8BrickMario
Also, does anyone think it should be added when the beat in the boss music for this guy and Bouldergeist is added? (I.e, when near Kingfin, and when Bouldergeist's rock armor ha been knocked off?) Maybe it should also be noted that the Fishbone torpedoes in this game have a similar explosion animation the Kingfin when destroyed.
- Sure. All info can be added. The more the better! By the way, if you jump on Luigi and fight Kingfin, the beams aren't there, but if you fight him without bugging Luigi, the beams will be there and bugging Luigi won't make them disappear until you quit the file and start it again.

Great! It'll be added to the glitches page.
Just to clarify, how many times does the glitch work before having to restart? Thanks for all of your help in investigating the glitch!
Is Kingfin robotic? One of my friends thinks it's robotic and another thinks it's not. Is there an answer or is this fact unknown?
