Larger debris also appears, and can plow through several blocks before landing, in addition to taking up more space. Some Volcanic Debris also appears at the beginning of World 8-2.

New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U[edit]

In New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U, Volcanic Debris was replaced by Meteors and Bowser's Fireballs, though they have the same behavior.

Super Mario 3D World[edit]

Volcanic Debris also appears in Super Mario 3D World, with an appearance similar to Bowser's Fireballs in New Super Mario Bros. U. In addition to falling from above, it now creates a lava puddle upon landing. It only appears in The Great Tower of Bowser Land, being expelled by a volcano in the background, and in Hisstocrat Returns and Boss Blitz, in which it is generated by Queen Hisstocrat.

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart: Super Circuit[edit]

Volcanic Debris (under the name of Lava Boulders in this game) appears in Mario Kart: Super Circuit, where the volcanoes in the background of Lakeside Park launch it onto the track. The racers are burned if they run into it.

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

In Mario Kart Wii, Volcanic Debris appears on Grumble Volcano, where it is fired from volcanoes, and spins out racers that crash into it. It remains on the ground for some time after it lands.

In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Volcanic Debris is referred to as "meteors"[citation needed] and is only found in one level, Rugged Road. The rocks can still hurt Mario if he touches them, but now they can also harm him if he gets caught in the spot where the debris lands for about one second. In addition, the meteors also home in on Mario.

Paper Mario: Color Splash[edit]

Volcanic Debris appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash in the level Kiwano Temple. It appears at the end of the level, where it jumps out of the lava and hovers over the platform Mario and Huey are on. If Mario touches it, he will take 8 HP of damage.
