Thunder Clouds are Enemies which appeared in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii Plus and Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. As their name suggests, they're thunder clouds which try to strike the player while under them. They're based off of the Thunder Cloud from Mario Kart Wii.

Appearance

Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii

Thunder Clouds are small, grey thunder clouds with a mad frown and a lightning bolt on its forehead.

Newer Super Mario Bros. DS

Thunder Clouds are depicted the exact same in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS.

Behavior

Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii

Thunder Clouds have two ways of behaving. Thunder Clouds will either glide left and right and eventually strike lightning towards the ground, or stand still and strike lightning in place. When Mario is hit by this lightning, he turns into Mini Mario, which is an homage to how the Thunder Cloud in Mario Kart Wii shrunk the player upon being struck.

Newer Super Mario Bros. DS

Thunder Clouds act almost the exact same in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, except when a player gets hit by lightning, they just take damage. This was done because the Newer Team thought it made more sense.
