Most of us often assume that a video game aimed for kids would probably be extremely simple. And Super Mario 3D All-Stars guarantees that, up to a certain point. Though the game is pretty straight-forward when it comes to battles and power-ups, there are a few enemies that are just outright annoying. It takes quite some time to defeat these enemies- and in a way transcends Super Mario 3D All-Stars from ‘just’ a kid’s game.
Here are the Top 10 Enemies in the Super Mario 3D All-Stars Game-
10. Mr. Blizzards
The main strength of Mr. Blizzards is their sneak attack. They can simply sneak up behind you when you least expect it and unleash an attack. In the DS version of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Mr. Blizzards are located in Cool, Cool Mountain. Also, Mr. Blizzards are known to throw snowballs at Mario after they rise up from the dead, and then steal Mario’s hat when he loses it.
9. Fly Guys
These enemies may look harmless, but they are quite lethal. To put things in perspective, a Fly Guy is just a propeller-fueled Shy Guy. In the Super Mario 3D All-Stars, they can throw fireballs at the player’s head. But sometimes they can be of benefit to the player. If Mario manages to get on top of the Fly Guy, he will be launched into the sky, without any fixed destination in mind.
Nintendo has the Swoops created to showcase the reality of bats as you trample through their caves. But unlike real bats, Swoops would simply harass your character, flying over your head and being a nuisance altogether. You can find these bats in the Hazy Maze Cave- but remember, the Super Mario 3D All-Stars version of bats don’t like it when you disturb their sleep.
7. The Chuckya
These enemies don’t use explosion as their main strategy to defeating Mario- they simply pick him up and throw him away. Although a Chuckya has been specifically created for Super Mario 64, you might find them in Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Remember, pick them up from behind and throw them- the only way to kill them.
If you are wondering what a Heave-ho does, it is pretty much what their name suggests. If you step on them, they will fling you into the space- somewhere you would rather not be. But, you could also use them to your advantage- and reach heights that your character just couldn’t reach normally.
5. Lava Bubbles
Timing is paramount when meeting these demons. They jump in and out of lava-like dolphins and can make your journey perilous. All you need to do is be patient and move the exact moment they have dived. Don’t try to kill them because it is impossible. Lava Bubbles can be found in Lethal Lava Land in the Super Mario 3D All-Stars.
These demons can be a little pesky, as they will try to blow you off the ledge. The only way to deal with them is to avoid them and the Tall, Tall Mountain. The closer you get to them, the more your chances will be of falling down the mountain.
3. Tox Boxes
These demons are quite tricky, as three out of the four sides will squash you into the quicksand. The only way to survive would be to hide in the hollow side of the Tox Box. You can find Tox Boxes in the Shifting Sand Land of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars, where they always provide a good challenge.
These underwater villains will chomp you with their big jaws. Or they might scare you into submission by popping out of holes when you least expect it. The only way to defeat the Maw-Ray (also called Unagi), is to draw him out from his hole. But remember, it isn’t easy.
1. The Mad Piano
This is the most ghoulish of all demons that Mario has to face. The only way to deal with the Mad Piano in Super Mario 3D All-Stars is by avoiding them carefully. You don’t want to get bitten by its chompers. Just protect the red coin, and run.
The Super Mario 3D All-Stars might have the appearance of a child’s video game, but this Nintendo produced game does pack a punch with its enemies.
