Thunder Clouds are extremely rare enemies seen throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series. They are literal clouds of lightning heavily based off of the Thunder Cloud item from Mario Kart Wii.

Appearance

Thunder Clouds are grey nimbus clouds with mad frowns and lightning bolts on their foreheads.

Behavior

Thunder Clouds have two main behaviors. Thunder Clouds will either glide left and right and eventually strike lightning towards the ground, or stand still and strike lightning in place.

In Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, when the player is hit by its lightning, they'll turn into their Mini form, similarly to the Mario Kart Wii item its based on. In Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, the lightning simply does damage, as the Newer Team deemed it made more sense. Its lightning also has the ability to break certain blocks

Thunder Clouds cannot be defeated by Fire Flowers' fireballs or Ice Flower and Penguin Suits' iceballs. Only frozen enemies and Koopa Troopa shells can defeat them.
