Do Thwimps act the same in Super Mario World in New Super Mario Bros. U? As in, do they instantly cause Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad and Yellow Toad to lose a life? If it's true or not, then this could be added to the article. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 10:28, 13 January 2017 (EST)

Are Thwimps even insta-kill in Super Mario World though? The article says "Not unlike their larger cousins" but I can't find anything on the Thwomp article that indicates that they cause insta-kills either. I would assume it just means if you're Small Mario? I've never gotten far enough in SMW to see them though, so... --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 12:14, 13 January 2017 (EST)
Well, they first appear in Morton's Castle in Super Mario World. Once you get there, let me know if they instantly kill Mario if he's not small. BTW, I watched a clip of New Super Mario Bros. U and Mario didn't instantly lose a life when he touched one. The link is right here: Skip ahead to the 1:37 mark to see it.

EDIT: They DO NOT instantly defeat Mario in Super Mario World. Link right here at the 9:32 mark:
EDIT 2: The information about them instantly defeating Mario was added since February 1st, 2011. Weird, isn't it? – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 01:07, 14 January 2017 (EST)
