Super Mario Odyssey Metro Kingdom Power Moon Locations
Here is our guide to all the Metro Kingdom Power Moons we've found so far. Keep checking back for more details on all the remaining power moons. Numbers match with those on your Power Moon list in the game.
Metro Kingdom Power Moon 1. Metro Kingdom Caterpillar Boss - New Donk City’s Pest Problem Power Moons
If you head through the normal path of City Hall you’ll reach the rooftop. Keep heading up and you’ll start a fight against a giant mechanical caterpillar.
As a tank this caterpillar boss isn’t very hard to beat. Fire at it when it’s glowing a bluish red. Shoot enough of these balls and you’ll be able to do real damage by repeatedly shooting it while it glows purple.
After each stage the caterpillar boss will go on a rampage, zooming out of portals on the buildings. Avoid these attacks and the fireballs being thrown at you, then repeat the process of attack from stage one. You’ll get three power moons and see that the city is now a much nicer place to be.
Finding the Musicians for New Donk City Festival
Talk to the mayor and she’ll ask you to find four musicians to take part in the New Donk City Festival. Each one will give you a power moon. Look for a glowing light shining upwards to direct you to each.
