Concept artwork of a Kug
Species Origin Goomba
Koopa Troop
A Kug is a Goomba-like creature originally planned to be included within Super Mario Sunshine, but was cut for unknown reasons. Kugs somewhat resemble a hybrid between Goombas and the similar Strollin' Stu enemy, and may have served as inspiration for the latter species. The Kug species has yet to appear in a real Super Mario title.

Physical appearance

Kugs are very similar in appearance to Goombas, in that they have similar feet, body and head structures. They have orange heads shaped similar to a chocolate chip with large eyes topped with thick eyebrows and a mouth sporting two fangs pointing upwards, all resembling the appearance of a Goomba. They have a white body, as opposed to a Goomba's cream-coloured one, as well as feet that appear to be various shades of violet.

Powers and abilities

Kugs seem to have limited but definite control of electricity. In most games, they generate an electric field around themselves every few seconds as they walk. This electrification protects them from being stomped as the attacker will be shocked upon touching it. This attack pattern is comparable to how Hammer Bros. initially hold their hammers above their heads, preventing them from being stomped in much the same way. Kugs are also strong against the abilities granted by the Thunder Flower, whose thunderball attacks have no effect on the species.

Like most of Mario's foes, Kugs can be stacked on top of other enemies, and given Super Mushrooms to make them two times as large. A Kug with wings is known as a Para-Kug, and hops around between bursts of electricity, making it harder to dodge.


Since the launch of the Kug Reintroduction Program, Kugs have gone on to appear in a wide range and variety of titles.
