How to beat the Giant Wildclaw in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope

It is a rabbit or tiger?

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope's tactical combat throws many challenges at you, but few compare to its bosses. The first boss you face, the Giant Wildclaw, on Beacon Beaches is no slouch. We have compiled below a list of tips and tricks and the best characters to defeat the Giant Wildclaw in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Giant Wildclaw Tips and Strategies

The number one thing you should do when fighting the Giant Wildclaw is to keep your distance. This boss does massive amounts of damage and can defeat one of your characters in two hits. To make matters worse, when you attack the Giant Wildclaw, it will rush at the character who attacked it, counterattacking if it gets within range.

We recommend spreading your characters out far enough that when the Giant Wildclaw rushes, it has to pick a direction. But you should keep your characters close enough that if you need to move a wounded character away, you can perform a team jump. Ideally, position your characters so they are equal distance from the boss, potentially keeping them trapped between all three of your characters.

You should focus your fire on the boss and ignore the minions for the most part. Using a character that can hit multiple foes is the best way to take minions out, otherwise, use every attack against the giant Wildclaw to bring it down as quickly as possible. Don't be afraid to pull one of your characters behind cover and use a mushroom to heal if needed.

Best Characters for Giant Wildclaw in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope

As you want to keep your distance, you'll want to select characters that can attack further away. We recommend using the following characters, in addition to the mandatory Edge, when facing the Giant Wildclaw in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.

  • Luigi
  • Rabbid Peach
  • Mario/Rabbid Luigi

Luigi is a must, as his bow has the longest range, and his Steely Stare ability is great for distracting the Giant Wildclaw. Rabbid Peach is also a must, as she can pick off minions hiding behind cover or restore health to any of your characters that get hit by the boss. Finally, you can use Mario or Rabbid Luigi as they are both capable of attacking multiple opponents, letting you target the Giant Wildclaw and minions at the same time.
