Destroyable Enemies*


Bob-omb*


If it sees you, it will light its fuse and follow you around until it explodes. Either get them to chase you, or pick them up from behind and throw them. Each yields one coin, but be sure to keep a safe distance until they explode. Bob-ombs will always respawn, but will not yield more than one coin.

Boo*


White, chubby ghosts. If you make eye contact, they will disappear revealing what they give when defeated. Be sure to attack them from behind by punching or ground-pounding them. Jumping on them normally will not destroy them. Each ghost yields a blue coin, though the ones in the courtyard contain only a yellow coin not including the one that gives entrance to Big Boos Haunt.


Appearances in the Game: Big Boo's Haunt, Big Boo Battle


Bookends*


A large living book with sharp teeth that disguises itself as a regular book until you get too close. The best way to attack them is to wait for them to come out, then punch them just as they are about to hit you. Each yields a blue coin.


Appearances in the Game: Big Boo's Haunt


Bully*


These enemies have black bodies and yellow horns. They will push you around, so be careful! Punch them into the lava to defeat them.


Appearances in the Game: Lethal Lava Land, Bowser in the Fire Sea, Chief Chilly Challenge, Bob-omb Battlefield,


Chuckya*


They are purple, and wear boxing gloves. If you get close to one, it'll pick you up, and toss you! So the only way to defeat this enemy is to go behind it and lift it.

Fire Guy*


A Shy Guy with a propeller on its head. They either ram into you, or shoot fire at you! Use any attack against one. Jumping on them makes you spin jump.

Two jumping snowmen can be found in Cool Cool Mountain. In Super Mario 64, they can be defeated by having one look at Mario and running around the Snowman.

Appearances in the Game: Cool, Cool Mountain


Killer Chair*


Killer Chairs are small wooden chairs that float up before hurling themselves at you. There are only two in the game, and while they can be defeated with a kick, they don't give you anything in return. Best to avoid these.

Koopa Troopa*


A bipedal turtle. Destroying him (with any attack) removes his shell and reveals an embarrassing pair of pink boxers. His shell, once removed, can be surfed upon like a skateboard.
