Spider Webs[1], or simply webs[2], appear in several Super Mario games, being commonly seen around spider-like enemies like Scuttlebugs or in spooky locations. In many instances, they are interactive, with players being able to climb or destroy them.


Donkey Kong Country / Donkey Kong Land series[edit]

In the Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land games, Squitter can create web projectiles that can defeat enemies and temporary web platforms he can step on.

Wario World[edit]

In Wario World, a giant web takes up the stage's center. Spideraticus attacks Wario while standing on this web. Wario can walk on the web, but he cannot jump from it, preventing him from easily mounting Spideraticus in order to Ground Pound it.

Mario Party 7[edit]

In Mario Party 7, webs appear in Spider Stomp. The players must shoot their weapons at the webs to destroy them and progress in the minigame. In addition, webs are shot by the Scuttle Bugs. They temporarily stun players if they are hit.

Super Mario series[edit]

Super Mario Galaxy[edit]

In the mission Tarantox's Tangled Web, Tarantox is fought on a giant web. On its edges are Sling Pods that must be used to attack Tarantox. Coins are also stuck to the web and they can be freed by hovering the Star Pointer over them.

New Super Mario Bros. 2[edit]

Webs appear in New Super Mario Bros. 2. These webs can be climbed much like a fence, the only difference being that they disappear for roughly a second after the player lets go of them before reappearing. They only appear in World 3-3 and World FlowerNSMBW Fire Flower Icon.png-Ghost House course icon, where they are fairly common.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star[edit]

In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, webs primarily appear in World 3. Mario first encounters them at Rustle Burrow. When he tries to approach a Wiggler Segment, the web underneath it breaks and causes it to fall into the hole. After Mario jumps into the hole, he is bounced by several webs on the way down, causing him to lose all of his stickers and Kersti in the process. In the burrow, the Wiggler Segment and Comet Piece are stuck behind giant webs. The webs can be broken with Mario's hammer. During the fight with the Big Scuttlebug, it makes a web that traps Mario if he uses a jump attack on it. It must be destroyed using other types of stickers. To reach and free Kersti, Mario must repeatedly jump on webs to break them.

At Tree Branch Trail, a Wiggler Segment is stuck to a web. This web can also be broken with the hammer. One web is suspended over a pool of poison and another is found on a path between two trees. They can be broken with jumps.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon[edit]

Webs are frequently seen in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. Sometimes, collectibles like Gold Bars can be stuck on or behind webs. They are featured prominently in the missions Sticky Situation and Confront the Source. In both missions, Luigi must burn the webs to progress.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam[edit]

In Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, webs are found within Gloomy Woods. Paper Mario can cross them to reach blocks only he can hit. In a cave in Twinsy Tropics, webs block paths in a timed area. They can be dashed through, with ones that have more threads taking longer to break. As such, the party needs to choose the paths with the thinnest respective web.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

In Mario Kart Tour, Spider Webs appear as minor obstacles in Piranha Plant Pipeline and its R variant. In both variants, they are scattered in the red and blue pipelines, facing oncoming drivers. They slow drivers down on contact while very briefly covering their view with a film of silk, similarly to how Bloopers and Inky Piranha Plants cover a driver's view with ink. Spider Webs can be destroyed by driving into them or throwing an item at them, giving bonus points in the process.
