The Cataquacks eventually reappeared in Super Mario Galaxy, though not in Super Mario Galaxy 2. The latest game they have appeared in is Mario Kart Wii in Peach Beach as a Retro Course.
The name "Cataquack" is probably from a portmanteau of the English words "catapult", referring to what they do, and "quack", referring to their duck-like appearance.
Cataquacks come in two forms; blue Cataquacks, which are mostly harmless and only catapult you if you come near them, and red Cataquacks, which actively chase down enemies.
