It maks me so mad! We build your houses, your castles. We pave your roads, and still you walk all over us. Do you ever say thank you? No! Well, you're not going to wipe your feet on me. I think I'll crush you just for fun! Do you have a problem with that? Just try to pound me, wimp! Ha!
~ The Whomp King

The Whomp King is a character from the Mario series of video games. He is the tyrannical king of the Whomps. He first appeared in Super Mario 64 as the boss of Whomp's Fortress.

History

Super Mario 64

He guards a Power Star given to him by Bowser, to make sure Mario doesn't rescue the princess. In this game he tries to crush Mario. Mario has to ground pound on him three times until he gives up the Power Star.

Super Mario Galaxy 2

He returns in Super Mario Galaxy 2 as the boss of Throwback Galaxy. He is bigger in this game, but is fought in the same way as in Super Mario 64. He also has new abilities. He can now create shockwaves when he hits the ground, and can also summon Whimps. He is once again beaten by Mario, who receives a Power Star.

Notably, the Whomp King's arena is now on the underside of the Whomp's Fortress, with his original arena now occupied by a lone Whomp.

Trivia

  • In Super Mario Galaxy 2, if the player loses a life while battling the Whomp King, he repeats his speech, only to stop midway and yell, "Arrrgh! I'm tired of this speech!" This references the fact that in Super Mario 64, Mario can flee a boss's arena, and when he returns, they once again recite their pre-battle speech.
  • In Super Mario Galaxy 2, the Whomp King's face actually changes upon his defeat. However, because he is lying face-down, it cannot be seen normally.
