Mummipokey is a boss fought at the end of world-2 in New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS. He looks very similar a Pokey but he is dead hence the name of Mummipokey. While Mario is fighting him his tactics include burrowing into the sand and popping out again in various places, if he comes up below Mario he will take damage. He also shoots projectiles at Mario while standing away from him. The key to defeating him is to jump on his head three times, this can only be done once at a time while he is down low enough for Mario to reach his head. An easier way to defeat him would be by using the Fire Flower. Mario can just simple throw several fire balls at him to defeat him. Another easy way would be to save a Mega Mushroom in the item slot and use it during the battle, this will defeat him instantly.
Mummipokey blocks the way to the unlockable world-4 in this game. In order to get there Mario must defeat him as Mini Mario by using a Mini Mushroom. In order for him to defeat Mummipokey while mini he will have to ground pound his head three times. After he is defeated Mini Mario will be able to take the mini secret path to world-4 thus unlocking it.
