The Chimp is a character in Super Mario Galaxy 2. He is a blue-furred monkey with sunglasses and a piece of blue and yellow hair sticking over his head. He has a competitive nature. Mario meets The Chimp in the Fluffy Bluff Galaxy just after finding the captain of the Toad Brigade. The Chimp shows interest for a climbing race against the player after watching him use the Cloud Flower. He later challenges Mario to a contest where he must stomp on enemies and collect the Coins, to get 10000 or more points within a time limit of 2 minutes. Later he appears in the Freezy Flake Galaxy, where he challenges Mario to a Whack-A-Mole styled game. Mario must get 500 points or more, while avoiding the spiky enemies, and hitting the green or gold ones. In Melty Monster Galaxy's Secret Star, Mario needs to knock down Pinheads with the Rock Mushroom. Getting 5000 or more points will make The Chimp reward Mario with a Power Star. He then appears in the Shiverburn Galaxy and challenges Mario to another skating challenge. After this, he appears in the Honeyhop Galaxy, where Mario needs to defeat enemies to get points. If the player gets 10000 or more points, The Chimp rewards him with another Power Star. The Chimp makes his final appearance in the Slimy Spring Galaxy where he challenges Mario to another point challenge. However, the challenge is very unique, and is mostly done underwater. Mario must shine a Shell's light on Snoodles and Boos. If the player completes this final challenge, The Chimp rewards him with a Power Star. After that, Mario teaches The Chimp some of his moves.
