The Scourge on the Skyscraper (Multi Moon title: New Donk City's Pest Problem) is the first story mission of the Metro Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. The mission's objective is to defeat Mechawiggler.


The mission begins at the Odyssey, where Mechawiggler is spotted draining the power from New Donk City, and Mario must pass by Pauline and cross the girders. He must then capture a spark pylon to reach the City Outskirts, then evade several Urban Stingbies and Sherms to reach the next set of girders. A few Goombas and Goomba Towers are encountered before the next segment, which features a few more Sherms. At the New Donk City Hall, Mario can take the staircase to the right of the entrance, leading to an area with a few Goombas. Mario must then Wall Jump across two girders to the Heliport, then travel across the next set of girders to an entrance over to the left. Mario can then travel through a long segment across some Crumble Blocks, Lifts, Mini Goombas, and Urban Stingbies to the next entrance leading to the rooftop. Mario must then capture a spark pylon to head directly to Mechawiggler. After defeating Mechawiggler, Mario will be rewarded with a Multi Moon.
