Giant Kamek from Super Princess Peach.

Giant Kamek is a boss in Super Princess Peach. Working for Bowser, After the Mario Bros. and several Toads are kidnapped by the Army Hammer Bro., Giant Kamek is later trusted with safeguarding the captured Luigi. Upon Princess Peach and her talking umbrella Perry's arrival at the section of Giddy Sky where Luigi is held captive, they find the green-clad plumber trapped in a bubble with Giant Kamek watching over him. When Peach attempts to approach her friend, Giant Kamek interrupts the reunion with a magical spell that sends Luigi flying. The Magikoopa then flies around before being inveloped in magical rings that make him grow giant-sized, he then attacks. Giant Kamek's ensemble is different from other Magikoopas: His robe is now purple and covers his whole body (Though his underclothes are still blue, shown when he attacks) with matching shoes and hat. Giant Kamek's wand is also enormous and floats at the wizard's side instead of being held by him.

During the battle, Giant Kamek levitates in the air, periodically teleporting from place to place. This teleporting can be tracked via his wand, which moves around to stay by his side. Giant Kamek frequently fires the magic blast typical of Magikoopas from his wand. These either come in bursts of three or five, or occasionally three shots in succession that home in on the princess. Giant Kamek will also summon Magikoopas on brooms to ram the princess, some of which carry Vibe Crystals which drop to the ground on defeat. A cloud moves in a circular fashion in the center of the battleground, which is the easiest way to get to Giant Kamek and strike the Wizard with his weakness: Wind.

If Peach attacks Giant Kamek's face with Joy's whirlwind, Giant Kamek's head will spin 360 degrees multiple times before stopping, leaving him dizzy and vulnerable to any method of attack. Giant Kamek's face is the only solid part of his body, Peach will pass harmlessly through his robe. When Giant Kamek's health is reduced to 2 points, he will start crying, his robes and clothing turning blue and starting to cry. The cloud is destroyed and Peach must now use Joy to fly up to Giant Kamek as well as stun the Magikoopa. His magic comes faster and he also teleports more frequently. Despite his powers, Giant Kamek is defeated by the teamwork of Peach and Perry in the end.

Unlike the other bosses, who explode upon being defeated, Giangt Kamek turns transparent and disappears, hinting that he survived the battle. Luigi then falls from the sky, his bubble popping, and has a happy reunion with the princess, though she apparently does not remember his name, the game's dialogue calling him the "green man". Peach and Perry then travel to Bowser's Villa to confront the villain and rescue Mario.

Giant Kamek must be battled again post-game to unlock the extra stages in Bowser's Villa.
