Hisstocrat appears as a giant purple snake creature that wears a red cape and a crown. Because of this, he is considered royalty.
In battle, Hisstocrat battles alongside his smaller snake minions that can be used by Mario and the others to jump up to the large boss. Hisstocrat himself mainly attacks by digging into the ground and send fiery boulders at the player(s). He can also have his snake minions attack the player(s) directly. The Cat Bell is useful here as it can be used to climb up easily and jump onto Hisstocrat's head. After three hits, Hisstocrat and his minions fall.
- Rock Throw: Hisstocrat will emerge from the ground while many rocks are thrown in the air that will fall onto the player.
- Snake Hiss: Hisstocrat will make a music hiss and call multiple snakes to assist him in his battle, however he is only helping the player to attack him.
