The Stairface Ogre (ドンスケ, lit. Oni Tribe), is one of the species resembling the mythological Oni. They first appear in Super Mario Odyssey.

Appearance

Stairface Ogres, different from their initial incarnation in Super Mario 64, are large, stone enemies that resemble hideous, gigantic ogre-like creatures with sharp claws, wild hair, and two long horns growing from their heads. They are humanoid for the most part, but occasionally, they are shown with unnatural features such as odd numbers of eyes or extra fingers and toes. Their skin may be any number of colors, but red and blue are particularly common.

They are often depicted wearing tiger-skin loincloths and carrying iron clubs called kanabō (金棒).

Behavior

Their primary means of attack is to smash their staircase-shaped mallet down where Mario is standing, which allows Mario to climb up their mallets. Stairface Ogres can be defeated by performing a Ground Pound on top of their head or by poking the yellow gem on their forehead while controlling a Pokio.
