Bugaboom is a sub-boss from Super Mario Galaxy and its sequel, Super Mario Galaxy 2. It is the leader of the Mandibug clan, a race of large stag beetle-like insects.

History

Super Mario Galaxy

As Honey Queen suggests, Bugaboom and its minions invaded the Honeyhive Galaxy/Kingdom to cause trouble.

In Super Mario Galaxy, Bugaboom is fought on a planet with several Banandelions (flowers that Mario can use to swing into the air) and a tree with honeycombs that Bee Mario can climb on in the middle. There is also a river of water which will deactivate Mario's Bee Suit if touched by him. Under the planet is a black hole which will suck Mario in if he falls off the planet, causing him to lose a life. When Mario lands on the planet, Bugaboom jumps from the trees and lands on the ground ready to attack. First you have to jump on it and Ground Pound it, then it will jump in the air and start flying around, forcing Mario to use either the Banandelions or the Bee Suit to hit it, and when Mario Ground Pounds it again it will turn red and start twisting around while it is flying, so Mario will have to time his Ground Pounds to when it isn't sideways. It will also drop bombs while it is at it. Once Mario Ground Pounds it one more time, it will fall to the ground and explode, making a Power Star appear.

Super Mario Galaxy 2

In Super Mario Galaxy 2, it reappears in the level Bugaboom's Back. It is a secret boss in Puzzle Plank Galaxy.

In order to defeat it, the player needs to use Cloud Mario and Ground Pound it three times like in Super Mario Galaxy. It will do the same attacks, but the Banandelions on its planet have been replaced with springboards and the honeycombs on the tree are no longer present. When you defeat it, it blows up for a second and last time and then a Power Star appears again.

Trivia

  • Bugaboom's name is a pun on the words "Bug-a-boo", a term which refers to monsters (generally minor ones from children's books), and "boom", referencing the bombs it drops from its bottom.
  • In Japan, Bugaboom doesn't seem to have an actual name, instead being referred to with a title, クワカブトキング (Mandibug King).
