Meteors are hazardous obstacles found in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They look like hot, brown rocks of molten lava falling from the sky. They fall and crash into planets, usually destroying part of it as they land. They are also known to create pools of lava in a few levels, such as the Shiverburn Galaxy. Meteors can damage Mario or Luigi if they crash into them, so you must watch and avoid Meteors at all times. Meteors are also used during some of the boss battles of Bowser, Bowser Jr. and King Kaliente. Meteors are also known to fly through space (but most of them fall).
