    • Red - Heart

  • Baby Bowser jumps around and shoots fire. Hit him with a yarn ball, then ground pound him.

    • Watch out for the last one, because Kamek will turn it into a big fire ball that smashes to the ground.
  • When you ground pound him twice, he shoots more fire, this time with 3 giant fireballs at the end. He also turns big for a short time and smashes the ground.
    • You can't hit him when he is big, so wait for him to turn back to normal before hitting him with yarn.
    • You win this part of the fight after the 3rd ground pound.
Giant Baby Bowser

When you beat him the first time, Kamek turns him huge with giant yarn.

  • Wait for the giant yarn balls, then eat the tops to turn them into your own yarn balls.
  • Throw the yarn balls at the floating yarn bundles around Baby Bowser.
  • He constantly tries to slam you with his hands, shoots fire, and makes fire erupt.
    • Use the cannon to shoot yourself to other parts so you can hit all the bundles.
  • You finally win after all the bundles are gone.

When you complete the last boss, you unlock Boss Tent. In this mode, you can fight harder versions of the bosses and unlock 3 new patterns: Bronze, Silver, and Gold Yoshi.
