10 New Enemies for the New Super Mario Bros. Series

The Super Mario series features a wide variety of enemies all throughout its long and rich history. The New Super Mario Bros. series has done a great job of playing out some of the more classic enemies, but with the fourth entry in the series set to release this year, it may be time to start bringing back a few more.  Take a look below to see ten enemies that need to be brought back in the next New Super Mario Bros. game.

 

 

Wallop

First Seen: Super Mario 3D Land (2011)

Last Seen: Super Mario 3D Land (2011)

At first glance, Wallop looks to be no more a threat than your average Whomp or Thwomp. Try to get past him and you will soon realize that he is copying your every move, meaning that simply going around him won’t work. Being the hefty guy he is, making him jump will take a bit longer for him, giving you the time you need to escape. This can work easily in a 2D side-scrolling game.

 

 

 

 

Shy Guy

First Seen: Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988)

Last Seen: Mario Tennis Open (2012)

Outside of Super Mario Bros. 2, Shy Guy hasn’t appeared in any main Super Mario title. Yes, he is in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island and the Paper Mario series, but he hasn’t appeared in anything like Super Mario World or Super Mario Land. We get that he is shy, but he is a really cool enemy that deserves a spot in the next New Super Mario Bros. game.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blargg

First Seen: Super Mario World (1990)

Last Seen: Super Mario 3D Land (2011)

The thing is a giant lava monster. That’s it. The New Super Mario Bros. series always dedicates an entire world to the lava theme, so seeing an enemy like Blargg get his own level could really spice things up.

 

 

 

Fuzzy

First Seen: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island (1995)

Last Seen: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island (1995)

I’ll let the video do the explaining. Needless to say, fans will welcome the return of the Fuzzy with open arms, imagining how crazy some of the levels can become.

 

 

Mattermouth

First Seen: Super Mario Galaxy 2 (2010)

Last Seen: Super Mario Galaxy 2 (2010)

Just as the name suggests, Mattermouths gobble up the floor, leaving an open pit of death. In the New Super Mario Bros. games, this doesn’t have to be restricted to just the floor, but to the entire level, including the sky.

 

 

 

Phanto

First Seen: Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988)

Last Seen: Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988)

Did you ever feel like the Ghost Houses in the New Super Mario Bros. series were not spooky enough? You can probably attribute that to the Phanto. Phanto is the epitome of scary. Pick up the key it is guarding and it will chase you all through the level. Everywhere. Once you use the key it will take off, but still.

 

 

 

Birdo

First Seen: Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988)

Last Seen: Mario Party 9 (2012)

Lots of Super Mario Bros 2 in the list. For those that don’t know, Birdo was an enemy, a boss in fact. She/he/it has since appeared in many of the Mario spin-offs, showing up as Yoshi’s partner or simply that pink thing with the bow. It’s time to see Birdo come back to its roots. Have Birdo as a new boss for the next New Super Mario Bros. game.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blokkablok

First Seen: Super Mario 3D Land (2011)

Last Seen: Super Mario 3D Land (2011)

A series of blocks that move together, with a head and tail. Destroy all the blocks to defeat the Blokkablok. Instead of being restricted to a circular track, let the thing move all over the screen!

 

 

 

Cataquack

First Seen: Super Mario Sunshine (2002)

Last Seen: Mario Kart Wii (2008)

Cataquacks were a fan favorite when they first appeared in Super Mario Sunshine, so it was not surprise when they ended up appearing on planets in Super Mario Galaxy. The enemy is capable of flinging the player high into the sky, and this is something that can really come in handy in a New Super Mario Bros. game. Or, it could have devastating results, but we will take both.

 

 

 

 

Angry Sun

First Seen: Super Mario Bros. 3 (1988)

Last Seen: Mario Kart Wii (2008)

One of the hottest (ha!) enemies from Super Mario Bros. 3 was the furious Angry Sun, only appearing in two levels. An Angry Sun will swoop down from the sky and try to fry Mario as he makes it to the end of the level. It has appeared in two Mario Kart games since, but an awesome enemy like this is something the New Super Mario Bros. series is dying for.

The Fuzzies that appeared in Paper Mario and NSMBWii aren’t the ones spoken of in the article. If you look at the video posted, you should see.

But yeah, I’d love to see any of these make a return! And honestly I’d rather see Birdo as an enemy than being Yoshi’s partner anyway.
