Also, Morton's casting speed is extremely slow compared to Roy, but his magic is the fastest in the game, along with Iggy. Whenever Morton is damaged, he will jump into his shell and spin to attack. This attack is faster than the other Koopalings. Fortunately, it can be easily avoided if the player jumps on the raised ground.
However, Skewers will come down from above and land on the two raised platforms, damaging anyone that they hit. Once Morton has been stomped on three times, he will retreat to his castle. In his castle fight, it appears it is going to be very alike to the attacks Larry used.
Then, Magikoopa flies in and sprinkles magic. At first, nothing looks different, except the ground has slightly lowered. Then, Morton will use his immense weight to ground pound and cause the platforms on either side of him to rise up and hit the ceiling. He will jump around and repeat this tactic throughout the battle. Getting squished will defeat Mario and company in one hit.
It is strongly noted that Morton never uses his magic in the castle fight, and he doesn't start spinning around as long as the pillars are up.
Also, unlike his tower battle, Morton's Ground Pounds won't stun grounded players during the castle battle. After being defeated, Morton is later seen along with the other Koopalings getting Bowser back up, only to have Bowser's castle fall on top of all of them.
On a side note, unlike in the past titles, players fight Morton after Roy in this game. Also, in Super Mario Bros. In addition, neither Roy or Morton get the cloud level, but it is rather given to Ludwig. Morton reappears in New Super Mario Bros.
He is fought in World 4- and stomps his foot and growl at Mario, like he did in the previous game. In his battle, he will create Spiked Balls using his wand during the battle and use Ground Pounds to stun all players that are on the floor. Just like the other battles with the Koopalings the player has to jump on him to defeat him. Unlike the other Koopalings, because of the nature of his boss fight with Mario, he does not spend a limited amount of time in his shell upon being stomped, as he Album) a pipe upon being stomped on to return to his position.
After three stomps, Morton is defeated, leaving the key to World 5. Morton survived the encounter, and rejoined his comrades at Bowser's castle, where they attempted to petrify Mario with their Koopa Clown Car's petrification device. He also aided Bowser alongside the rest of the Koopalings by causing him to grow larger, but it resulted in him and the others being knocked into a lava pit by Bowser due to his increased size.
He and the other Koopalings survived, however, and attempted to help Bowser by airlifting him with the Koopa Clown Car, but this resulted in it crashing due to it being unable to handle the combined weight of both them and Bowser. Morton ended up on his back, also attempting to get himself back up but could not due to his large size.
U and its Nintendo Switch port as a boss. Like in Super Mario Bros. Morton is battled in Morton's Compactor Castle. Like WendyLemmyand RoyAlbum) boss battle involve him using a weapon instead of a magic wand. This time, it is a large hammer that is apparently filled with magic. He will once again stomp his foot at Mario when he sees him before battle. While he still shakes the ground by stomping on it, he'll use his hammer to knock giant Pokey segments in the player's way.
He can knock Pokey segments straight at the player or knock them in high arcs. Three stomps will have him fall offscreen. Despite this, Morton survived, and was later picked up along with the rest of the Koopalings by Bowser Jr. Morton has his own personalized airship, with his face on the bow, and his black-colored shell at the deck of the ship.
The stern of his ship has a gray color design, similar to his former shell color from past appearances. Like most of the airships, his airship is equipped with a propeller at the back as well as another just beneath the crow's nest. Morton's airship is equipped with four cannons, two on each side, like Roy's ship except that the cannons are placed vertically from each other.
There are also grey lids on top of the cannons used for opening and closing the cannons. His airship has the biggest build of all the Koopaling ships.
The ship is also made out of a darker wood than the other Airships, a reference to his darker skin tone. The cabin of his ship contains gold-tinted windows, gold Stone-Eye statues at the top of the room and a sand pit elevated on a platform. When Morton's airship appears at the roof of the castle, his voice sounds different from his usual voice.
A similar oddity occurs with Roy's and Ludwig's airships. He is battled in the same way as New Super Mario Bros. Uand is found in Morton's Lava-Block Castle.
Morton appears alongside the other Koopalings as a placeable enemy in the final update for Super Mario Maker 2being available in every game style except the Super Mario 3D World style. Morton receives an original sprite for his appearance in the Super Mario Bros. In this game, Morton attacks by slamming the ground, creating fireballs that travel across the surface of the ground. While winged, he can fake out his slams in order to confuse the player.
While jumping and slamming the ground, his wand also flashes, implying that the fireballs actually originated from his wand and not from the slams themselves.
Morton, along with the other Koopalings appeared in two of the Japan-only Super Mario anime videos. In Snow WhiteMorton and the other Koopalings play a similar role, once again, being defeated by Mario as he attacks Bowser's Castle. Morton appeared in the interactive Anime adaptation of Super Mario World. He alongside his brothers fought Mario after Wendy nearly fell into lava, but was stomped by Mario alongside Roy. Although they got up, Mario by that time broke open a red block to get a Cape Feather and sent them flying.
Factory, making him closer to his original namesakeostensibly because he was more talk than action. In fact, he talks so much that someone frequently has to step in to stop his speeches usually King Koopa or Bully Koopa. Big Mouth has much larger eyes and purple eyelids; the star-shaped birthmark on Morton's face is darker around the cheek, while it's just one solid color on Big Mouth. Lastly, Shoot - Super Deluxe - Surrender (CD Mouth is shorter and thinner than Morton, his arms are thinner and a little bit longer, his claws are a little bit sharper and his mouth is light orange instead of pink while his skin is dark orange instead of dark brown.
In the Super Mario World cartoon, however, his mouth and skin return to their original colors. In Leaping LizardsMorton sneaks into Mushroom Palace, vandalizing the throne room and transforming the Mushroom King into a rabbit with his magic wand.
If Luigi decides to run ahead of his friends after hearing what Morton is up to, he can find the Koopaling in the midst of smearing peanut butter on the walls, and gets into a fight with him, acquiring his wand before the Koopaling escapes if the reader makes the right choices.
If Luigi loses the fight or if he delayed going to the palace to return together with Mario, the Princess and Toad, Luigi is forced to pursue the fleeing Morton as he makes his way to Water Land on a boat, eventually upturning the boat and forcing the Koopaling to surrender his wand with the right decisions. Due to not knowing how to use Morton's wand, and thus left unable to change the king back, Luigi proceeds to track the Koopaling to his houseboat in Water Land and breaks in, prompting Morton to call Iggy and the Doom Ship for backup, only to be abandoned by his sibling when the bespectacled Koopaling spots Luigi.
Forced to try and swim for it, Morton is eventually cornered on a small island and tipped onto his shell by Luigi if he decides to pursue him instead of boarding the Doom Ship, leaving him helpless. Under threat, Morton grudgingly reveals to Luigi that the only way the king can be changed back to normal is with using a Magic Silver Whistlewhich Iggy is later revealed to possess. Three weeks later, Morton and five of his siblings show up as competitors in the International Mushroom Games, where the first prize is Iggy's whistle, which he won by cheating in the previous competition.
What events Morton participates in besides the Beetlebowl an all-team contest are unspecified. In the early parts of Monster Mix-UpMorton manages to kidnap the Princess thanks to his minions for use as a test subject for Bowser's Monster Mixer. If the player chooses to visit the Hall of Horrors Album), it leads to an ambush by Morton where he also captures Mario, Luigi, Toad and the Mushroom King as additional test subjects, leading to a Game Over.
In Koopa CapersMorton and his brothers have their wands stolen by Wendy, who disappears with them shortly afterward, intent on overthrowing their father with her own army, and a super wand she plans to create by fusing her own wand with her brothers'. If Luigi, who had been coerced by Bowser into searching for Wendy, tracks the female Koopaling down to her hideout, Bowser and the male Koopalings, who had been following him, will barge in after the plumber, but decide to stave off punishing Wendy for her mutiny if she helps search for the hiding Luigi.
If Luigi had acquired Boom Boom 's socks earlier in his adventure, he can toss them into Wendy's simmering wand combination potion, which will release fumes that knock the entire Koopa family and their minions out for at least a week. During a point where Wendy O. Koopa was about to attack Luigia small picture that was supposed to show an angry Wendy O.
Koopa mistakenly had a picture of Morton Koopa Jr. When Luigi's mind is transferred to Princess Toadstool's body, Morton who is unaware of the change tries to trick Luigi into following him to a secluded houseboat by promising him "triple decker lasagna and chocolate chip raviolis".
If Luigi tells Morton who he really is, Morton immediately tries to attack him, but Luigi escapes by using the princess's floating ability to cross the nearby Dinosaur Lake.
If Luigi instead decides to pretend to be the princess and take Morton up on his offer of snacks, he will be taken to the houseboat, and be ambushed by a group of Koopa Troopasleading to a Game Over. Though Morton doesn't appear in Mario is Missing! In addition, unused quotes attributed to Morton can be found in the original DOS version, suggesting that he was originally planned to be encountered in-game as well. In Yoshi's SafariMorton helps his family invade Jewelry Land and steal the jewels that maintain the stability in the kingdom.
Bowser entrusts one of these jewels to Morton, who then watches over the area known as Spirit Mountain. He attacks in a giant, blue, mechanical frog, but Mario and Yoshi defeat him with the aid of the Super Scope. Here, he held Princess Toadstool captive for a short while, but soon became the first Koopaling battled.
At Morton's Tree House o' Pain, he had little defining characteristics. He will wander around open any doors; however, if he finds Mario or Luigi inside an elevator, he will step inside for a moment, then step out and spit the ill-fated plumber's cap on the floor. Fortunately, the Mario Bros. Morton is the second Koopaling to be fought. Defeating Morton raises a platform, allowing the Mario Bros. To get to Morton, Mario and Luigi will have Album) jump over shockwaves he sends towards the two.
High Jumps and Spin Jumps will not work. In battle, Morton has two attacks, sending shockwaves and spitting fireballs at the target like all the other Koopalings. He is first seen with IggyLemmyand King Bob-omb on top of Mount Brrrwhere they shower the land with new enemies and terrain with the help of cannons.
Later on in Neo Bowser Castle, after Mario and co. Their yet to be announced EP should only further solidify the direction the band is going for on this great-sounding song.
