Big Bullies are large Bullies working for the Koopa Troop that appear in Super Mario 64, Super Mario 64 DS, and Mario Kart DS. Like their smaller counterparts, the Big Bully resembles a large black sphere with yellow horns and green feet.


Super Mario series

Super Mario 64/Super Mario 64 DS

In Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS, Mario (or Yoshi, Luigi, and Wario in the DS version) fights two Big Bullies in Lethal Lava Land. The first one appears in the mission Boil The Big Bully. In battle, Mario is unable to damage the Big Bully with his attacks, instead having to hit the Big Bully into the lava, which will cause it to melt. If the Big Bully is pushed onto the sinking platform next to his own, it will try to return to its normal place, and even stop fighting Mario.

In battle, Big Bully will ram into Mario, attempting to shove him into the lava. Big Bully's attacks do not hurt Mario; if pushed into the lava, however, Mario will lose three slices of his health.

The next time Big Bully appears is in the mission Bully The Bullies. Mario must defeat three regular Bullies in combat on the stone island right after the island with the first fight with Big Bully. After doing so, Big Bully will fall from the sky and immediately attack. Again, Mario must push the large Bully into the lava.

Big Bully's appearance was updated in Super Mario 64 DS, the creature's appearance having a pair of collars on his horns.

Mario Kart DS

In Mario Kart DS, Big Bully is the first boss of Mission Mode. In this game, Yoshi has to hit Big Bully off of the platform using Triple Mushrooms.

Super Mario Maker 2

Big Bullies reappear in Super Mario Maker 2 exclusively in the Super Mario 3D World style, acting like they did in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. They can be created by giving a Bully a Super Mushroom to make it grow.


  • Although Big Bullies do not appear in Super Mario 3D World, normal Bullies in this game are roughly the same size as Big Bullies in Super Mario 64 and its remake.
