King Kaliente is a boss in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. He closely resembles an octopus, even though being an Octoomba. He seems to be in league with Bowser as he was leading a portion of his fleet, was called upon by Bowser Jr. to fight Mario, and guarded a Grand Star. He is fought twice: once in the Good Egg Galaxy and again in Bowser Jr.'s Lava Reactor. The first battle is for a Power Star and the second battle is for a Grand Star. His name comes from the Spanish word caliente, which means hot or spicy.
