Super Dry Bones is a large species of Dry Bones who appears throughout the New Super Mario Bros. Series. He is in every way identical to a normal Dry Bones but is larger and much harder to defeat. Most of the time it's smarter to avoid him while playing the games. He mostly appears in the castle levels leading to a boss. In all three titles Super Dry Bones can be smashed with a Ground Pound into pieces of bone, but will come back to life shortly.
New Super Mario Bros. is the very first game of the series and the first in which Super Dry Bones appears. In this game he can be defeated using a Koopa Shell, or with Mega Mario. Invincible Mario will also take him out.
Super Dry Bones appears again in the second game New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Here he can be defeated using an Ice Flower, or Penguin Suit. Using these power ups Mario can shoot ice balls at him, freezing him solid. However he will break out pretty quick so the player must Ground Pound him quickly while he is frozen to defeat him. He also can be defeated with Koopa Shells or as Invincible Mario.
Super Dry Bones most recant appearance is in New Super Mario Bros. 2 the sequel to New Super Mario Bros. In this game he can be defeated with Gold Mario after using a Gold Flower. He also can be defeated using a Star.
