Fuzzies are usually found on bouncy ropes or on transparent grids that they float along. They are incredibly annoying. I know that you cannot jump on them to kill them, or use Boomerang Mario, but is there any way you can get rid of them? Or are you just stuck with them?

The only method to kill fuzzies is to run into them while invincible due to the effects of a star.

You can probably kill them with statue mario as well, but I am uncertain. – Wipqozn Jan 18 '12 at 3:11
I just tested it, you can not kill them with statue mario. – Wipqozn Jan 18 '12 at 3:20
Thank for checking! It's too bad that is the only way :( – Ash Jan 18 '12 at 3:30
Can't you kill them with fire? Or a koopa shell? – Jason Chen May 10 '14 at 2:18
@JasonChen: It's been a while since I played the game, but I'm fairly certain I tested this and you can't kill them with fire or koopa shells. The mario wiki suggests this as well. – Wipqozn May 10 '14 at 10:14
