The Mad Moon is a rare enemy serving as the counterpart to Angry Sun which appears in both Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii and Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It is a moon with an angry face and a variety of iceball-based attacks.

Throughout Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, the Mad Moon only appears in Moonlit Woods and Grey Mountains, appearing alongside the Angry Sun in the latter. It only appears in one level of Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, Skyglare Dryland. It, once again, appears alongside the Angry Sun.


The Mad Moon is a grey moon with an extremely infuriated expression. It has red eyes with yellow irises. In Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, it is a 2D sprite ripped straight from Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii.


In Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, the Mad Moon acts exactly like the Angry Sun, but instead of shooting fireballs—it shoots iceballs. The Mad Moon can attack by swooping down at the players, spitting out one or three iceballs at a time, or moving in a spiral pattern.

Meanwhile, in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, since the Ice Flower and the Penguin Suit weren't in the original games, iceballs didn't exist—therefore it simply shoots recolored fireballs. The Mad Moon is also more aggressive then the Angry Sun, shooting more fireballs than it at a time.

Like their solar counterpart, Mad Moons can move independently from the camera. The Mad Moon can be defeated by throwing a Koopa Troopa shell or frozen enemy at it, making contact with it under the effects of a Super Star or Mega Mushroom, touching a Red Ring, or by touching the Checkpoint Flag or Flagpole.
