The homing ground pound is different from other moves in the Super Mario Galaxy series in a strange way; it does not appear in the guide book included with the game. It can be performed by Mario or Luigi. It is simple to perform. Mario must spin jump while moving and crouch as if he were doing a regular ground pound. However, his body will shoot towards the nearest stompable object. This attack can break blocks or squash enemies. If it is performed near no targeted objects, Mario will do the attack and shoot towards the ground as normal.
