Chuckya are large purple enemies in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. These troublesome enemies resemble Bob-ombs, except they've got round purple bodies, a red antenna, and red hands. These red hands are used to pick up Mario if he gets too close, and whilst Mario's stuck in a Chuckya's grip, he'll spin you around for about a second and then he'll quite literally "chuckya" in the direction he's facing, explaining the reasoning behind his name. Hence the sentence before, Chuckya is a pun of words Chuck and you.
For Mario to defeat a Chuckya, he needs to go behind the Chuckya, as cowardly as that may be, and pick him up and throw him. As a result, the Chuckya will detonate, and will release five coins (one of the few occasions where cowardice actually pays off for once). You can find Chuckyas in Wet-Dry World, Tall, Tall Mountain, Tiny-Huge Island (in the giant area) and Bowser in the Sky.
- When Chuckya is thrown, Mario is propelled backwards a small distance. This momentum can be used to force Mario through walls.
- Occasionally, when Chuckya is next to a wall, he may throw Mario directly into it, resulting in an instant death since Mario is out of bounds.
- While Chuckya is in the air after being thrown, he still possesses the ability to lift/throw Mario. This glitch can be used to move Chuckya to lower levels, and also move him underwater.
- If Chuckya is picked up in or held in water, he will be "light," meaning that Mario will be able to walk around at a moderate speed and jump while holding him. This is particularly useful in Wet-Dry World in order to perform the infinite coin glitch.
- If Chuckya is grabbed right as he explodes (from being thrown), Mario will pick him up and he will die. This will result in Mario holding a fake Chuckya, which may then transform into other objects.
