Notable Attacks / Techniques:
- Rage Boost: Standard Wigglers can increase their power and defence when enrages, changing from their clam base form to a red and steaming form. This form also doubles their speed and makes them a much more unpredictable opponent. SM64’s Wiggler can also tap into this form, whilst the one found on Isle Delfino appears to always be angered when awake.
- Watering Can: Standard Wigglers can summon a seemingly magic watering can, which instantly sprouts turnips and Leaf Guys when used to water the ground. The turnips come in varying sizes and can be thrown at foes, whilst Leaf Guys are flying Shy Guys that appear to work for the Wigglers, and aid in attacking foes.
- Sandstorm: Creates a sandstorm which can half the power and defence of the opponent by striking “Fear” into them, causing shivering as a side effect.
- Body Slam: Standard Wigglers can stand on their hind legs and slam their long bodies down onto the ground. This usually creates large shockwaves. If charged for too long, however, the Wiggler can flip upside down. SM64’s Wiggler also harnesses a lesser version of this.
- Charge: Wigglers can charge forwards at high speeds to destroy large objects in their way or to chase foes. This can sometimes drain a Wiggler’s energy, however. The one found on Isle Delfino appears to charge indefinitely until tripped, with no sign of fatigue.
- Projectiles: Some Wigglers have been shown to summon projectiles, such as rock and crystals to rain from the sky, or spit brown cannonballs from the mouth, either as a single shot or as rapid fire.
- Poisonous Gas: Some Wigglers can shoot poisonous gas from their head flower.
- Vigor Up / POW Up: Calm Wigglers can greatly increase power via Vigor Up. Enraged Wigglers can further enhance their power via POW Up.
- Size Manipulation: The Wiggler from SM64 can seemingly manipulate its size from small to toweringly giant, although this may be due to the Power Star it holds.

Note: The Wiggler that appears as a boss in Mario Kart DS is implied to be the same one that appears in Super Mario 64, so they are treated as the same on this profile, instead of expanding the MKDS Wiggler’s feats to all Wigglers.
