Lava Bouncers are a blue subspecies of Podoboos that appear in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They first appear in Good Egg Galaxy during King Kaliente's battle as allies to Kaliente and in Melty Molten Galaxy as regular enemies. They only appear after Mario knocks off King Kaliente's crown after the second hit where they surround the Magma Planet, hurting Mario upon contact.

They also appear as enemies Boss Blitz Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2. These enemies are only defeatable with Star Bits. In both games, all Lava Bouncers vanish once King Kaliente is defeated.


They are a blue sub-species of Podoboos. They first appear in the Good Egg Galaxy. They are summoned by King Kaliente on the Magma Planet. They will simply bounce around, making defeating King Kaliente and avoiding them more difficult. This is because the player must watch out for King Kaliente's fireballs and wait for him to shoot Coconuts. However, they must also avoid the Lava Bouncers bouncing around the planet. If Mario/Luigi come in contact with a Lava Bouncer, they will be burned and react as if they have touched Lava itself (jump and run around uncontrollably for a few seconds). They also appear when fighting King Kaliente in Bowser Jr.'s Lava Reactor, however, some do appear bouncing around before the boss shows up. Last, but not least, Lava Bouncers appear in the Melty Molten Galaxy. Some guard a Silver Star in Burning Tide and others guard Star Chips in Through the Meteor Storm. Lava Bouncers appear in the Boss Blitz Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2 , once again aiding King Kaliente during his battle. When he is defeated, all Lava Bouncers will disappear. 


  • Lava Bouncers greatly resemble Brrr Bits, however, Brrr Bits are made of ice and attack using ice. Lava Bouncers are fire enemies with a blue color. Their resemblance to Podoboos is much larger than with Brrr Bits , however.
