Big Munchers are rare enemies that appear throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series. They are larger versions of the Muncher.


Big Munchers look nearly identical to normal Munchers aside from their size. They have black round heads with a beady white eye and a constantly snapping mouth. They are held by an orange stem with two orange leaves sprouting out at each side.


Big Munchers act the exact same as normal Munchers. They are completely stationary, hanging on floors and ceilings, hurting the player on touch. They cannot be defeated by anything, and more-so act like harmful blocks than enemies. Enemies can walk on top of them without being harmed. Super Stars and Mega Mushrooms are the only safe way to traverse across them.
