BACKGROUND: Tarantox is an enormous, insectoid boss that inhabits the Sticky Planet of the Space Junk Galaxy. Hibernating in a giant cocoon, it awaits Mario. It has several orbs on it's body that produce a powerful stream of toxin, and apparently, keep it alive. Tarantox has three large eyes, a pair of tiny wings, suction cup feet, and a Snifit-like snout like most aliens in this game. Whether it is related to the Electrogoombas is unknown.

n/a.

STATS AND STRATEGIES:
Games: Super Mario Galaxy
HP: 6
Items: Star
Attack Pattern: Tarantox moves around in a circle in the center of its web. It will shoot toxin from its mouth and the four orbs on its side.
Basic Strategies: Avoid the acidic streams by standing in between them. Make your way around to Tarantox's backside and hit the huge glowing orb by using the Wobble Launchers. Tarantox will flip on his back revealing three pulsing red orbs (gross). Hit each of these orbs via Wobble Launcher. Tarantox will get angry and start moving faster. Repeat the process to send him hurtling into space.

FOOTNOTES AND TRIVIA:
Though it spun a web, Tarantox is not an arachnid because it has six legs. Hmmmm.
