Super Mario Odyssey Mollusque-Lanceur Boss
Another giant boss that you will face in the Seaside Kingdom is the Mollusque-Lanceur. This is a giant octopus boss and you will be fighting with it for supremacy.
What makes it stand out from other octopuses in the game is its sheer size and the boiling lava on top of its head.
Other than that, it features golden facial hair, which is unique for an octopus to have. Mollusque will first show up on top of the massive glass chalince inside the Seaside Kingdom.
You have to strike the multiple encased Ground-Pound Swtiches in this Kingdom to shoot a large cork at his head. Once you do so, he’ll try to stop you by throwing explosive Spiked Shells at you.
After he takes a certain amount of damage, he’ll leave the chalice and get up in your face.
This battle with Mollusque-Lanceur is a little tricky because you will be fighting this boss in the ocean so you will be in the water most of the time. Also considering the giant size of the boss, getting to its weak point, which is its head, is no easy task.
The attacks of the boss are very basic and can be easily avoided. However, you being in the water makes movement a little bit of a problem.
Mollusque-Lanceur will attack at long range with water so you will be required to avoid it. Occasionally you will be treated with a Spiked Shell that will land on you and explode after some time.
You can easily dodge the shell as it gives you a little time to escape so be on your guard. As soon as the shell lands near you, get away from the blast radius.
Now for your offense, since the weak spot is at its head, you must find something to get to the top of its head. Lucky for you, there are many small octopus floating around you.
You can simply grab one and use its water-spouting ability to launch yourself in the air. Keep shooting water to go further up until you are at the top of its head. Once there, start attacking the head with the water spouting. You will see as you attack, the lava on top of Mollusque-Lanceur head will start clearing.
As you do this, Mollusque will start running away from you and throwing the shells while running. He’ll even throw some thin shells which are faster and more accurate.
You have to now attack only when he pauses. As you get his health down more, he’ll start running away even faster and shooting more shells. When he pauses to shoot the shells, you can sweep in for the finishing blow to his head.
