Super Mario 64
Whomp's first appearance was in Super Mario 64 along with its remake Super Mario 64 DS where it relatively unchanged. Whomps walked slowly, and when they saw Mario, they will start to run faster and pounded the ground with their front side. If Mario was crushed, he'd lose a big amount of health. Whomps had one weakness though; if they missed Mario while landing, they leave their backside unprotected, allowing Mario to ground pound the Whomp.
Whomps appeared throughout the Mario Party series. Some Whomps were in the mini-games, while others guarded the paths, and asked a player to pay coins in order to get past the Whomps.
Mario Party 8
In Mario Party 8, Whomps appeared to guard secret passages in King Boo's Haunted Hideaway. They ask players for ten coins for a pass. If payed, the Whomp moves out of the way and inhabits another pathway.
Mario Party DS
One appears as a miniboss in this game when the other is the Big Bob-omb.
Whomps make very minor appearance in New Super Mario Bros. In one of the castles, some Whomps will attempt to crush Mario. One Whomp is actually a way to nab a Star Coin.
