Biography

Super Mario World

Wigglers make their first appearance in the first level of the Forest of Illusion. They cannot be jumped on, as that will only make them angry and move faster. They can be beaten by using a Super Star, throwing an object at them, or by Yoshi eating them.

Super Mario 64

Wiggler was a minor boss in the level Tiny-Huge Island. To access Wiggler's chamber, Mario had to become large, then ground-pound the top of the island, smashing open a small hole, draining a torrent of water into the chamber. Then Mario would have to shrink in size to enter the chamber. When he does, he finds Wiggler, who is angry at Mario for flooding his home, and claims that everything went wrong since Bowser gave him a Power Star, and that the star makes him feel strange. Mario had to defeat Wiggler by stomping on him three times. After that, Wiggler would admit defeat, give Mario the star, and claim that he felt better.

Super Mario Sunshine

The Green Giant Wiggler from Super Mario Sunshine.

Wiggler appeared as a boss in the third level of Gelato Beach. Enraged at being knocked of the Sandbird's tower, it goes berserk and charges around randomly.

In this game, Wiggler was incredibly heavy and could send Mario flying by building up momentum, and then, ramming into him. It could only be defeated when Mario watered the dune bud sandcastles to make them grow, and having Wiggler trip over them, sending him flying onto his back. Mario could then ground-pound a section of his stomach.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star

A friendly Wiggler serves as a major character in World 3. He blocks the entrance to the World by sleeping in the middle of the path, only waking up when Mario uses the Trumpet thing. When explaining that the forest was polutted with poison, he is captured by Poison Bloopers and split into pieces by Kamek. Mario has to capture the four missing segments across the World and bring them back to Wiggler. Once all four segments are reattached, Wiggler aids Mario in reaching an island where Gooper Blooper was poisoning the water with its ink.

Much later in the game, Wigglers evolves into a Flutter and flies Mario to Bowser's Sky Castle.
