A Coconut is a fruit and item that appears in Super Mario Galaxy. They are green Coconuts that look as if they are ripe coconuts. By doing a spin, Mario can send a Coconut flying. This is how you defeat enemies such as Giant Pokeys or the boss King Kaliente. King Kaliente is known to shoot Coconuts. By doing a spin, you can send them back at him. By doing this repeatedly, you can knock King Kaliente's crown off, and eventually defeat him (by doing it even more times). When you've collected 9999 Star Bits all coconuts turn into Watermelons.
