It makes 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 to Mario.
No! Crushed again! I'm just a stepping stone, after all. I won't gravel, er grovel. Here, you win. Take this with you. Dang it!
~ The Whomp King's defeat.

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. The Whomp King resembles his species, but is bigger and has a crown, making him a bit more fearsome.

Biography

Super Mario 64'/Super Mario 64 DS

The Whomp King guards a Power Star given to him by Bowser, to make sure that Mario does not 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

It makes me so mad! We build your houses, your castles, your-- Arrrgh! I'm tired of this speech! Lets see you try and ground pound the Whomp King again! Arrrg!
~ The Whomp King in "Super Mario Galaxy 2" after the played is defeated in his arena at least once.

The Whomp King returns in Super Mario Galaxy 2 as the boss of Throwback Galaxy (itself a recreation of Whomp's Fortress. 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.

Mario Party 3

Excuse me for not getting up. I'm the Whomp King. If you had a (random item), I'd move...
~ The Whomp King in "Mario Party 3"

The Whomp King can be found lying in the middle of the Creepy Cavern board, blocking the left or right path. Landing on an action panel directly in front of him will make him get up and move to the other path. If interacted with automatically, he refuses to move unless the player gives him one of their items.

Mario Golf

While not encountered with physically, the Whomp King's name can appear on tournament scoreboards of Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Mario Golf: Advance Tour, or Mario Golf: World Tour.

Dr. Mario World

The Whomp King appears as an assistant, only obtainable through tier 9 and higher battle boxes earned from Versus Mode. His Stage Mode skill increases the score by thirty (a hundred and fifty at level five) percent when viruses are defeated with a rainbow capsule. His Versus Mode skill gives a twenty (forty at level five) percent chance to decrease the number of viruses received when the opponent attacks by one.

Personality

The Whomp King is shown to be an irritable figure who believes the citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom to be ungrateful for the actions of the Whomps. To this end, he desires to crush Mario for fun and get revenge. Upon defeat, however, he is shown to be rather graceful, as he humbly gives up his Power Star to Mario for defeating him.

Humorously, Super Mario Galaxy 2 implies that the Whomp King is merely reading off a script, as he not only recites the same speech he delivered from Super Mario 64, but battling him again after losing a life during his battle reveals that he is tired of it. If he is defeated, he speaks his defeat script and says "Dang it" afterwards before vanishing.

Trivia

  • In Super Mario Galaxy 2, the Whomp King's face changes upon his defeat. However, because he is lying face-down, it cannot be seen normally.
  • A glitch used by speedrunners in Super Mario 64 happens when the player groundpounds at the right moment before the Whomp King slams on the player, where they pass through the Whomp King and stop on him. This glitch was patched when the Whomp King was brought back for Super Mario Galaxy 2.
  • Whomp King is the only boss character in the game to have dialogue in Super Mario Galaxy 2.
