Super Mario Odyssey Torkdrift is a robotic flying saucer resembling a flower that vacuums up the flowers in the area. When he reaches Torkdrift, he can use the Uproot to smash the glass part of Torkdrift to deal more damage.
How to Beat
During the battle, the Torkdrift will vaccum up all the flowers within the vicinity. As Mario, you will have to run around while dodging the incoming lasers. For the first phase, Torkdrift will simply suck up all the flowers. After that, wait for the Uproot to appear. Using Cappy, take over the Uproot and smash the glass portion of Torkdrift.
Once you do however, he becomes increasingly more aggressive. He then will cover himself with a red shield. While covered with a red shield, he’ll summon stone boxes. Again, using the Uproot, hit the boxes to put down the shield. However, as your knocking down the box, the lasers will begin targeting you. You can choose to either stay there until the circle turns red only to move the last minute. Or, you can begin moving around in order to leave the red circle behind.
When all the boxes are taken down, have Mario use the Uproot again to hit the glass portion of Torkdrift.
After finishing phase 2, the boss will suddenly unleash a red laser that covers the entire field. Jump up to dodge the incoming laser waves. But watch the waves, not all of them are just one level. Some of the lasers are layered one on top of the other so watch out where you jump. Once that ends, he’ll repeat his actions from Phase 2. Break the stone boxes again to lower his shields and hit him again as an Uproot.
Perform phase 3 around three times and you’ll successfully defeat the boss.
