  • Petey is also able to damage and contend with Mario, who struggled, but still managed to restrain and drag a large Chain Chomp of whom we later find out is made of gold, and given the size and taking into account the empty space, it would still likely weigh in at hundreds of tons.

  • Petey is referred to as female in some sources.
