Tweesters[1] are tornado-like enemies that appear in Super Mario Galaxy. They possess eyes and have debris spinning inside them, such as skulls and bones. Tweesters can be helpful at times, being used to traverse obstacles. Touching one will also cause them to spin around. If the player then spins using the Wii Remote, the Tweester will make Mario or Luigi go flying into the air and spin their arms around very quickly like a helicopter. Two Tweesters have spiked debris spinning around them, which hurt Mario or Luigi if they make contact with it. They only appear in Dusty Dune Galaxy, in the missions Blasting through the Sand and Purple Coins in the Desert.

Super Mario Galaxy Trading Card description[edit]

These tornado-like creatures can be menacing or actually helpful on occasion. Mario must watch out for the debris that flies out from their gusty wake and also be careful if he bumps into them, because they'll send him spinning. But if timed correctly, Mario can do a star spin into a Tweester and fly up higher than any jump could take him.
