The Reptilian Goliath has just two attacks. In the first, he attacks Wario with a powerful slam from his fists that flattens Wario on contact. Wario must be standing right in front of the Reptilian Goliath for the attack to connect. Reptilian Goliath uses his second attack after receiving some punches from Wario. He charges up and runs after Wario, flailing his arms wildly. This attack gets faster and thus more difficult to dodge as the Reptilian Goliath loses health. It is also possible to give the Reptilian Goliath two damage by using a Power Throw and throwing him off the cliff.
After three powerful moves, the Reptilian Goliath is toast and Wario is allowed into Greenhorn Ruins. The Reptilian Goliath is the first of the three bosses in Excitement Central. Big Scorper is the second, and Dinomighty is the third.
