A Winged Strollin' Stu[1] (also refered to as Name Kuri (wings)[2] and erroneously as a winged Goomba[3]) is a variety of Strollin' Stu in the game Super Mario Sunshine that can fly. They look like a Strollin' Stu with peach-colored skin and a blue bottom. They have a pair of wings that rapidly flutter and lack feet. When encountered in in normal courses they idly hover in-place. When Mario comes in close proximity, they start to fly towards him. When directly above Mario, they swoop down, depleting one bar from Mario's life meter upon making contact. As with other members of their species, a simple squirt with F.L.U.D.D. or a stomp defeats them. In secret courses, they fly back-and-forth along a fixed trajectory. There is a green variety of Winged Strollin' Stu called a Swipin' Stu that is larger and capable of stealing Mario's cap.

Winged Strollin' Stus only are found on Pinna Beach during the "Red Coins of the Pirate Ships" episode; Hotel Delfino's secret course; and Delfino Airstrip after the flood.
