Mega Dry Bones (also named Big Dry Bones or Super Dry Bones) are larger versions of Dry Bones that appear in all New Super Mario Bros. series titles as well as Super Mario Maker and its sequels.

Jumping on a Mega Dry Bones will merely stun it for a second. While stunned, the enemy's head will shake and will make a noise. Mega Dry Bones can only be dismantled with a Ground Pound; the collapsing noise they make when dismantled is low-pitched. After about five seconds, the Mega Dry Bones comes back together. Mini Mario cannot dismantle them but can make them rattle their teeth with a ground pound.

Like their smaller species, they are invulnerable to the powers of Fire Flowers. The Mega Dry Bones is also highly resilient to being frozen by ice balls, as they'll break free from the ice the instant they're frozen. In other words, there is no way to completely stop a Super Dry Bones without a Super Star.

In Mario Party: Island Tour, they are named Big Dry Bones in the North American release and Mega Dry Bones in the European release. They appear on the second and third Star Stages of the Star-Crossed Skyway board. They give out seven Mini Ztars if a player is unlucky enough to reach them.
