History

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Giga Lakitu appears in Super Mario Galaxy 2 as a boss in the Yoshi Star Galaxy.

He attacks with Spinies and Mario must release Yoshi from a Yoshi Egg before starting the battle as Yoshi can spew Spinies back at Giga Lakitu to attack. Each hit makes Giga Lakitu throw more Spinies and at a quicker pace. After each two hits, Giga Lakitu makes a new attack; releasing a giant thunderbolt from his cloud and onto the ground, attempting to attack Mario and Yoshi. This attack instantly defeats Yoshi after a hit on him. When he is hit four times, he collapses and gives up the Power Star to Mario and Yoshi to collect.

Other ways of attacking is when Mario shoots Star Bits at him to stun him. He also laughs at Mario and Yoshi, leaving an open space to attack him.
